another very interesting thing about India is that in most of the country 
there are no signs put up to show the road name. Towns in Karnataka have, but 
no where in Tamilnadu. One has to find the road name by looking at the 
addresses written on the shops. In my home town, the actual road name may not 
even be known to the residents on the road. Often roads are referred to by a 
landmark. Again there is this passion for renaming roads - on paper it will 
have one name, but the residents use the older name.
