Our drives between Jaipur, Chittorgarh, Udaipur, Haldighati, Ranakpur, Kumbhalgarh had much of time to pass. The best way was to photograph the trucks ahead. India is a popular place for truck slogans / truck quotes. People write amazing things behind their trucks. Some are wacky, some naughty, some heart-touching, some inspirational, some literal quotes. Here I present you with the 19 best photographs of truck slogans in India from my collection of the trip with their titles and explanations.
The first photo above has a typical Indian truck slogan that says "Samay se pehle bhagya se zyada kabhi nahi milta", which means that we never get anything before time and it will never be more than what is in our luck. It also mentions typical Indian truck lines — speed 40 kilometers per hour, use dipper at night, wait for side, all India permit, horn please, etc.
NP in the following truck slogan photo is National Permit. The white text with blue extrude and then blue text is Mirza Motors. The red text is "Mehboob" meaning "Lover".
In the following truck slogan photo, fatta box means toolbox. The text in Hindi under the lock is "maa kaa aashirwaad" meaning "blessing of mother". The black text on the bumper rod says "Jaha ala vaha sala. Buri nazar vale tera muh kala.". I have no idea about the first sentence that says something about brother-in-law. The second sentence says "Your face is black if you have an evil eye."
The following Indian truck slogan is just too much. The Hindi words "Has mat pagli pyaar ho jaaega" mean "Don't smile baby. I will fall in love with you.".
Just a general truck again running on the Indian roads
"Mitra nu shonk hathyaran da" in the next photo means "I am fond of weapons". Some other slogans on the truck say "Use dipper at night", "Mast baba", "Blow horn", etc.
The unreadable blue sentence on the below truck says "Shauk nahi madam majburi hai, 1081 chalana zaruri hai." meaning "It is not my hobby madam; driving 1081 is my necessity". 1081 is the truck number.
The next photo of truck slogans in India shows a small plate below "Bishnoi" that says "Shama dhal gai, lali chha gai. Dekho Birbal seth tumhaari gaadi aa gai". It translates, "The lamp is dimmed, the atmosphere is orangish. Look lord Birbal your truck has arrived.". The meaning probably is that it is late evening, and I, the driver, have brought your truck my lord Birbal.
There are other typical slogans on this Indian truck like "Horn please", "Speed 40 KMPH", "Wait for side", "Use dipper at night", "AIP" / "All India Permit", etc. There are a few names written in Hindi language — Ashok, Kavita, Pooja, Jitendra, Devilal, Rupesh.
Bishnoi is a caste name.
Perhaps the best perception of the world is written on the next truck photo — "Vishwaas vaham hai, sachchaai jooth hai.", which means, "Trust is hallucination, truth is false". It also says "Maa kaa aashirwaad" — "Blessings of mother".
"Aaye din bahaar ke" slogan in pink-red color written on the next truck photo means "Spring has arrived". It also mentions the truck owner's or truck driver's name — Raju banna [see red text above the bumper rod]. The truck slogan combines some typical lines like "Blow horn", "Wait for side", etc.
This one is a typical truck on the Indian roads with typical slogans / quotes / text like "Blow horn", "Use dipper at night", "OK", etc.
This one is just another truck on the Indian roads.
The red text above the bumper in the next Indian truck slogan photo is "Maa kaa aashirwad". Oh you guessed the meaning right — "Blessings of mother".
One more typical truck slogan in India — "Buri nazar wale tera muh kala" meaning "Your face is black if you have an evil eye". The text above that is mostly wiped off is "Soch kar socho saath kyaa jaaega". The meaning is "Give a thought to the thought, what you will take along when you will die"
I think I can leave the rest of the best truck slogans in India for you to just see and enjoy.
