I mean, take a look at the rising success of Indian comedians worldwide. Then again, why look so far when you can have live examples of Indian humour right in front of your eyes during the day!
Yes, you heard it right. We’re talking about the amazing taglines and slogans you get to see on Indian trucks, of all shapes and sizes!
Here are a few funny, quirky and inspirational truck quotes that will make you smile –
“Samay se pehle bhagya se zyada kabhi nahi milta“. This one talks about how one will get what they deserve at the right point of time and one will only get what falls within their luck. Moreover, it keeps the standard truck instructions and warnings in place.
This one is a short poem that talks about love. It says how one should not hurt themselves or fret over untrustable love, especially when at the end of the day, we all have to die, buried in a small space of land. It goes on to mention how one should love their nation instead. The right motivation for a broken heart.
This one goes along like “Has mat pagli pyaar ho jaaega” which translates to *Don’t smile, I’ll fall in love with you*. This is a standard cute quote used to flirt and certainly does what it is expected to do, makes people smile while reading it.
This one says “Vishwaas vaham hai, sachchaai jooth hai“. It puts forward an appropriate point stating how Trust is hallucination and Truth is false. It means how the world is so where you can’t trust anyone and even what you think is true can turn out to be false.
A simple one, “Take poison, but don’t believe on girls” is a quirky quote bringing both the seriousness and sarcasm part of heartbreak and relationships these days from a boy’s perspective.
It reads “Dum hai to cross kar, varna bardash kar” which challenges the ready to cross the truck if it has the guts or be patient enough to wait around. It shows how overtaking is risky and it’s always better to wait and be calm on the road.
It goes along as “Buri nazar wale tera muh kala” which means that your face should be covered in black if you have an evil eye. It’s usually said to avoid bad luck or the evil eye on the precious truck and its owner.
It reads along like, “Aaye din bahaar ke” which means that spring has arrived. The line brings hope and optimism, the freshness of spring with itself. It brings out the happy times and good memories whenever one reads it!
The realistic quote that says ‘Shauk nahi madam majburi hai, 1081 chalana zaruri hai’, which means it’s not a hobby, instead, it’s his necessity to drive the truck. 1081 is the truck number.
This quote that says ‘Hamari chalti hai, logo ki jalti hai.. buri nazar wale nasbandi karaley!’ This is a rather derogatory statement for all those who eye on the running truck.
It’s always fun to read such quotes on trucks while passing by the road, a unique part of our versatile India. It makes you smile, remember good days and even realize, how being happy is not so difficult. Happy reading!
