Answer: Douglas Adams and Towel Day. If you have read the HHG2G, you will know the significance of the towel.

Funny thing is, almost entire Mandya (a district in Karnataka) celebrates towel day every day :P

    AMAZING hints in the second pic..

    Let’s see: a person, bare footed, hitchhiking, with a towel around her neck, standing at “Dent” street, with the hint reading “Don’t Hint”.. Bombat!!

    That’s ‘Towel Day’ being celebrated in honor of Douglas Adams :)

    Towel day. The person in the picture(1)is Douglas Adams, author of Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. In (2), there is some hitchhiker on Dent St (probably for Arthur Dent), with a towel which according to HHGTG, is ‘the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have’.

    The pic 2 shows a lady hitching for a ride on Dent Street.
    Dent Street must be named after Arthur Dent, the protagonist in The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy series which has been written by Douglas Adams who is shown in pic 1.

    I forgot to add that the lady has a towel which , in the H2G2 series is described as the most useful object in the universe.


  12. Ps

    “A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

    More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: nonhitchhiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, washcloth, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet-weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitchhiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitchhiker might accidentally have “lost”. What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

    Hence a phrase that has passed into hitchhiking slang, as in “Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? There’s a frood who really knows where his towel is.” (Sass: know, be aware of, meet, have sex with; hoopy: really together guy; frood: really amazingly together guy.)”
