Posted by Chandrakant in Uncategorized.

Which  unique  location  in  India  could  one  connect  this  advertisement  to ?

This  ad  for the  Citroen  Visa  GTI  model  was  shot  on  the  French  aircraft  carrier  Clemenceau . The  ship  was  to  be  scrapped  at  Alang  in  Gujarat , but  stirred  up  a  hornet’s  nest  as  it  had  tons  of  toxic  chemicals on  board  and  was  denied  permission  to  dock  by  the  Supreme  Court  in  a  highly  publicised  incident .

Cracked  by  Freestyler , CATD , Hadi , Anil  Raghavan , Deepu ( welcome bac ! ) , Arun  Hiregange , Subin  and  Rithwik .

Appu , take  a  bow ! He  becomes  the  2nd  person  to  hit  the  double  hundred  mark  on  this  blog .
