Some Odd Banners
Here are two odd banners that I saw in Vellankanni, Tamil Nadu, India. Vellankanni is famous for it Holy Mother Mary's Shrine where a lot of miracles have taken place. And though it is a Hindu practice of offering hair to their gods the practice has become an established one at this Shrine also. Here is a banner advertising that such hair removal will be done. The languages are (from top to bottom) - Tamil, English, Malayalam and Hindi. The other is one hanging in a fruit juice parlor.
