The main line in large capital fonts went "DISTANCE CREATES LOVE". I spotted it on the rear bumper of a mini-bus running through the busy bazaar roads of Beliaghata in Kolkata on the way to office today. A statement sufficient in itself and something which would be sacrilegious to further explain.

Before I could completely absorb the deepest implications of that bit of philosophical advice, just below it, I saw that in a significantly smaller font of running handwriting, for those who had missed the finer message of the first line and still had come really close to the bus, the rear bumper repeated "Obey traffic rules". Priceless, just priceless!
