Not In My Backyard - No Parking Banner In a Busy Market in Punjab, India

Seen here at Rainak Bazaar, Jalandhar in Punjab, India a stern warning to not park any vehicle in the surrounding area. 

The banner has unfriendly smiley and photos of live vehicles of which tyres were deflated. And at the bottom is mentioned that this notice is by local residents.  

All in all, the message is strong and in our hours of shopping around I think no one parked their vehicle around this area.

Being Successful by Selling The Dream of Success

Lately, I have been thinking about the difference in the earnings of people - questions like why do some people earn more than others, how come a retired person earn more pension than a young person working full-time?
