The story behind "Stolen Shoes sign at Dharamsala, India"

i>Funny signs are one of the big no-go’s in photoblogland as it is considered too cliché. But this sign is not only interesting to me due to its obvious spelling mistakes, but also due to where it can be found.

This sign is located at the side of the main temple in Dharamsala, less than 100m from the home of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He is the spiritual leader of the Buddhists, who lives in exile in this nice but touristy mountain town in the North of India. He is such an excellent leader as he is very pragmatic and does not cover his beliefs in useless dogmas, but knows the world around him. For me this sign illustrates that :)
