 So  I've  been  doing  some  major  Google  Map  contribution  of  late.  And  one  aquarium  related  change  I  did  was  to  make  the  location  of  Nautilus  Aquarium  visible.
 
 I  remember  6  months  back  I  was  trying  to  locate  Nautilus  via  google  maps  on  my  android  phone  -  and  I  ended  up  wandering  in  Hill  Road,  Bandra  searching  for  it  (while  the  shop  is  in  S  V  Road,  Bandra  btw).
 
 Anyway  after  making  the  corrections  I  made  the  settings  to  make  the  shop  appear  by  default  in  the  map  and  I  finally  saw  the  finished  result...
 
 And  I  had  a  great  laugh!   Chuckle  
 
 The  store  is  visible  alright,  but  a  particular  map  feature  next  to  it  steals  the  thunder  completely.
 Check  it  out!   ROFL  ...  Google  Maps  -  S  V  Road,  Bandra  
 
 P.S.  I'm  already  underway  getting  the  (ahem!)  business  listing  removed  from  the  maps.  So  here's  a  pic  of  it  ...  Google  Map  Screenshot
 
 Hope  you  have  a  good  laugh  as  well.  cheers!
 
 
 edit:  smudged  out  certain  bit  in  the  jpg

 Hmmm  now  this  is  a  situation  you  don't  come  across  everyday  ...  a  person  blatantly  breaking  the  official  board  rules  by  using  banned  abusive  vocabulary  while  telling  others  to  follow  his  subjective  moral  viewpoint.
 The  irony  is  hilarious   Chuckle   Chuckle   Chuckle   ROFL  ...  thank  you  for  giving  us  a  second  good  laugh  in  this  post!   You  rock!  Thumb Up

 Hey  Vk  just  because  you  don't  have  a  sense  of  humor  doesn't  mean  others  shouldn't.  So  get  a  life  son.
 
 However  what  baffles  me  most  is  how  ChetanM  landed  at  hill  road  looking  for  what  is  arguably  Bombay's  most  famous  and  easy  to  find  LFS.  Even  hobbyists  from  other  states  know  where  Nautilus  is.

 Aha!  yup  I  think  the  guys  searching  for  it  in  that  area  will  have  no  other  choice  but  to  visit  Nautilus.  Cos  the  other  posting  is  just  a  randomly  placed  spam,  there's  no  real  place  there.  And  seriously,  spending  4000  bucks  at  Nautilus  is  way  more  awesome!

 Dude  you  have  no  idea.  I  had  never  been  to  Nautilus  till  then,  only  heard  a  lot  about  it  (cos  most  of  my  aquarium  needs  are  fulfilled  by  the  shops  in  Borivali).  So  anyways  I  thought  relying  on  google  maps  would  be  a  better  idea  than  simply  calling  up  my  friends.  It  showed  me  Hill  Road,  I  went  there,  but  couldn't  find  it.  So  I  started  asking  shopkeepers  around  there  for  it.  All  of  them  were  clueless  (obviously),  and  one  guy  even  directed  me  to  a  glass  shop  (thinking  I  wanted  to  get  an  aquarium  made).  I  got  such  a  major  poppat  that  day  Doh   Dunce  
 
 But  anyway  don't  think  that  problem  will  happen  with  any  one  else  after  the  location  fix.
 However,  imagine  all  the  explaining  if  our  wife/gf/mom  sees  us  staring  at  the  new  map  location  on  our  screen  ...  Shocked
 "Accha  toh  tum  macchli  ke  bahane  asli  mein  yahan  jate  ho!"   Punch  !
