Today's joke in The Hindu



RIDING HIGH: The Chairman of Bajaj Auto, Rahul Bajaj, with the Vice Chairman, M. Bajaj, flagging off Bajaj Avenger mobike at the company's Chakan plant near Pune on Friday. � Photo: Shashi Ashiwal

This is the photo and accompanying text from this article in The Hindu today. Am I the only one to notice that the bike in the picture is Bajaj Pulsar and not Avenger? I guess somebody used a file photo by mistake. The Bajaj Avenger looks like this.

To be fair, it was an agency article from PTI, but isn't it the responsibility of the editor at the newspaper too?

Well spotted. I don't hv access to the hardcopy...hence was unable to spot the error.

Kaps, I wanted to see how different the Avenger was as it is a cruiser. Pulsar is written on the petrol tank, while the Avenger name is written in the side panel

Good observation, Chenthil...

Sometimes, usage of file photos without matching to the context, leads to presentation of wrong picture.
