Ambigrams !!!

You can see symmetry in many ways.. Ambigrams [ambi+gram=>same+letter in latin] have always been an interest for me.. I used to try out my name, and my friends name using ms-paint [as i will be doing a rotate by 180 degree, after making half the part of the word] during all my vetti times..[very old days.. ;)] Though when i ask people are you able to read this, i will always get a very bad response..

Ambigrams are of many types.. and i don't really wanna write an essay about that here.. So just go through these links to get to know more about them:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambigrams
http://www.ambigram.net/gallery/

There are also online ambigram generators available.. I found one such site, and got the ambigram for my name, but that wasn't very pleasing.. After i googled along with my name, i got myself landed in this person's BlogSpot link, Amarnath [actually my college mate]. What a creativity he has got, and i was really impressed by his Tamil Ambigrams in particular.. Everything was really really cool.. And in particular, i got the Ambigram for my name too, which was even cooler than anything else [as its my name.. ha ha ha :D]

I just modified it to some extent.. And here you go..

Wow.. very nice. If you love them so much, get hold of Angels and Demons book. It has most of the stunning Ambigrams, as far as i have seen :)
