Honking isn't exactly music to our ears, as evidenced by a tongue-in-cheek parody poll—a format most familiar from Kaun Banega Crorepati. A banner affixed to the back of an auto-rickshaw in Delhi poses a simple question in the style of KBC and has gone viral since it was spotted on the streets. In India, a nanosecond is often described as the interval between a traffic light turning green and the driver behind you honking. The band of motorists begins blasting a cacophonous symphony announcing a loud exit as soon as the mechanical conductor signals the orchestra to release. However, honking, let alone excessive honking, isn't exactly music to our ears, as evidenced by a tongue-in-cheek parody poll—a format most familiar from Kaun Banega Crorepati.
A banner stuck on the back of an auto-rickshaw in Delhi, raises a simple question KBC-style and has gone viral ever since it was spotted on the streets. Reads the question, accompanied by the regulation four alternative answers, each more sarcastic than the last and with only one right choice:
Traffic mein horn bajane se kya hota hai? (What happens when you honk in traffic?)
A: Light jaldi green hoti hai (It makes the traffic light turn green fast)
B: Sadak Chaudi ho jati hai (The road becomes wider [somehow])
C: Gaadi udne lagti hai (The car starts to fly)
D: Kuch nahi (Nothing happens)
While the first three options are unrealistic or outlandish, the implied takeaway here is that they are the only logical explanations for honking at the car or person ahead of you. Tunku Varadarajan, a British Indian author, commented on ShantiSe's Honking Hurts banner on Twitter: Brilliant. In Delhi, on a three-wheeler.
The amusing tweet has sparked discussion, with many netizens expressing how much they despise honking.
