I’m famous! (on a composition notebook in India)

I got one of my favorite emails a few days ago, this time from Shreyash in India who wrote:

I bought 3 notebooks for my assignments. They had a QR code at the back of it, which I scanned. It took me to your website. It took me a little while to figure it out but I eventually did, thanks to your article. This notebook is from a local manufacturer. I am attaching the images of the notebook for you to look at.

Here are the photos he sent me:

So, welcome to all the students visiting my blog from India. Are you confused? Read Why does that QR Code go to justinsomnia.org? to learn more.

Update: I was also curious about the photo of the woman on the back of the notebook. A quick Google Image search turned up the source, a webpage for the University of Auckland, New Zealand Libraries and Learning Services (which has since been modified to remove the photo of the student). After forwarding my discovery along to the university, they thanked me for reporting the issue, and asked that I obscure the photo of student in my post above.
