Peep Peep Don't Sleep

My recent travel to India, particularly in the Indian Himalays has led me not just to the beauty of the magnificent gigantic mountain ranges but also to the bumpy heart pumping road of Leh-Manali Highway that switched back on the slopes of the mountain ranges. Along the road are interactive signages that one can not  leave the road unnoticed. We read each one with joy and look forward to what could be the next after several kilometers on the several days on the road.

Then on our way back to Delhi, I learn that there is a book, a compilation on all of these. But in as much as I wanted to have a copy of it on the day that we left,  I cannot find any in any of the bookstore at the airport. Thanks to my Indian friend who take the time to share with me the link of the book on blog www.PeepPeepDontSleep.com. I make a copy on my page as I my reference. I still hope to get a copy of the book when I will return to India or when one of my friend will visit India soon.

From the Back Cover

If you thought Road Signs are only meant to guide and inform, think again.
The ones on Indian highways are in a zone of their own. They shower you with words of wisdom, keep your mind sharp as you unravel their cryptic messages, tickle your imagination, amuse you and entertain you. In public interest, they lend a hand to Alcoholics Anonymous. Since journeys are meant to be a pleasure, they remind you to ‘Smile Please.’

The entertainment for the traveler does not stop at this. There are the limitless public notices, outdoor advertisements and storefront signs with their own idiosyncrasies and eccentricities. Who needs comic strips in this country?

I drove over 10,000 kilometers in India to put together this collection of signs. With a bit of witty commentary thrown in, this book will be a journey unlike any other you may have undertaken. Resulting in you letting out a ‘Peep Peep’ of delight.

    1. I totally agree with you Ajay Kumar. India is such an interesting country so rich in culture and beautiful places to visit especially the Indian Himalays. I love so much the nature and its people. I hope I can visit one day do some trekking on the higher peaks there.
