The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) is a group belonging to the Ministry of Defence that is tasked with the mandate to construct, repair and maintain roads shared by India and its International neighbours. They started Project Himank in 1985 to carry out this task in the remote region of Ladakh. And in spite of making some of the world’s highest motorable roads, the thing that people will remember them for are their brilliant road signs in Ladakh. From ones that will make you laugh with their double meanings, to those which can cause an existential crisis in a child, these are the 12 most hilarious and witty BRO Himank road signs in Ladakh.
Want to get philosophical? Just quote a 19th century French writer
The wordplay here is just brilliant
So deep, you can’t even understand it
This should be installed on every bad road in India
Here begin the innuendos
