In a rather peculiar incident, a man from Kerala has managed to turn his passport into a telephone directory, leaving the internet in splits.
A viral video shared on a popular microblogging platform has brought this bizarre case to the forefront of online amusement.
The video, initially shared by a user with the handle @Nationalist2575, showcases a passport that has undergone an unusual transformation.
The passport, which was reportedly submitted for renewal in Kerala, caught the attention of the passport officer due to its unconventional content. The last pages of the passport booklet had been ingeniously repurposed as a comprehensive telephone directory.
"The Passport Officer in Kerala hasn't yet recovered from the shock after seeing a person's passport which came for renewal," reads the intriguing video caption.

The internet was quick to respond to this unique twist on passport usage, with users sharing a myriad of humorous comments. One user couldn't help but jest about the potential complications that might arise when traveling with such a passport, suggesting, "Imagine if somebody traveled with this passport, and an immigration officer had to stamp it."
However, it's important to note that repurposing a passport in this manner might not be a laughing matter from a legal perspective. As another user pointed out, "It’s a punishable offence as per law," raising questions about the consequences this individual may face for his creative passport modification.
