Qutub Minar in Gurgaon?

2 May

Two signs spotted in Gurgaon this morning…

First this:

One of Gurgaon's many watering holes

Not that Gurgaon has any dearth of roadside watering holes (which is probably why there’s so much drunken driving) but this is the first one that claims to be an island. Wonder what happens to the blokes who stumble out after several pegs… Do they get anywhere thereafter?

And then this:

Evidently, some overzealous advertising person got his geography muddled because the last time I looked, the Qutub Minar hadn’t been relocated from Delhi despite the Metro Rail threatening to weaken its ancient foundations. Or perhaps the gent had swung by the island above before choosing this spot for his billboard…

Come to think of it, if they had to do a Gurgaon-specific billboard, what would it say? “Welcome to Gurgaon, home of malls & WagonR”?
