Here are another couple of examples of interesting English use. These were both signs, and in both cases the English is perfectly well-formed, but still you'd not see their like in New Zealand. The first example comes from a sign on the wall at Bhavnagar airport, apparently an official proclamation from the Indian Airports Authority. It went like this:
"The honest have value. The corrupt have a price. Those who earn through dishonest means are destroyed."
The other example offers some good advice. It was on a sign on Elephanta Island. It said:
"Don't get too friendly with monkeys."
