Horseshoe

Doors: Cosmopolitan Restaurant & Stores

Sir Hurkisondas Nurrotumdas Hospital, junction of Sandhurst Road and New Queen’s Road.

In Irani restaurants and bakeries across Bombay horseshoes are found at the entrances of the establishments. They symbolise good luck.

Humin Irani of Cosmopolitan Restaurant & Stores explains that his grandfather and father were very interested in the ‘spiritual line’; they prayed at the store counter, fasted, read people’s faces and befriended Israeli tourists of a spiritual bent.

Humin asks ‘Have you read The laws of the Spirit World ?’ ‘No? I will give you a copy’.
