Chennai Police


This post is about the creativity of our Chennai Police. The Tamilnadu police, renowned for employing the largest number of hard working pot bellied officers, had been rated some time back as the world's No. 2 Police Organization after Scotland Yard. I really thought this was a joke until I confirmed it through several useless and unaccountable web pages:


Anyways, this post is about what police people do other than their usual police duty. After becoming sufficiently able to solve all crimes, the police force is now trying to use its creative power in crime prevention through public awareness. This picture which appeared on The Hindu is a proof of that:


I couldnt stop laughin the whole day after seeing this. Even the stupid mascot at the bottom right is parodying their own people's appearance.

Is the poilce trying to say that walls and doors should be strong so that theives can enter from roof? Can someone please tell me what this means?

Yes, its no doubt, impossible to read the minds of our ace investigators ...

The signage is prolly a bait from the 'catch-the-thief' manual. These are trap houses, called the Sher'LOCK HOME's!

This is amazing ! This poster may seem like a joke to the lay person, but it is actually a powerful metaphoric image. The house represents the human body. They are asking you to shut all entrances (front and back), to keep an open mind and allow people to enter the mind- meaning be open to relationships with actual people. Know thy neighbour ! The shut the other entrances is the usual tone they take to any sort of physical relationships. Wow ! Brilliant. No wonder they are the second best police force !
