It’s kind of interesting that these Indian immigrant women in the Caribbean seem to have re-purposed and adapted local materials (they look Western to me given the tasseled shawl, skirts and the white blouse in pic 1) and incorporated it with traditional elements of their clothing including heavy silver jewellery - the fusion seems to work so well.

Tulsi or Holy basil is a sacred Hindu plant. Traditionally, Tulsi is planted in the center of the central courtyard of Hindu houses. Tulsi is regarded an earthly manifestation of the goddess Tulsi. The plant is cultivated for religious and medicinal purposes, and for its essential oil.

Mumbai was also oddly famous for its street-corner ‘Irani cafes’ that sprouted up in the late 18th and early 19th centuries due to an influx of Persian immigrants.

Though the high-ceilinged cafes with mostly shaky tables and rickety chairs shared little of the glamour and glitter of the city’s glitz, they enjoyed iconic status.

Selling sugary milk tea and bun-muska (freshly baked bread lathered with butter), the cafes had a quaint but welcoming quality: those thronging them included actors, workers and out-of-work youth with lots of time to spare.

But that was then. Today, the cafes are shutting down one by one, and no more than 25 of them survive. Fast-food restaurants, global cafe chains and changing attitudes are taking a toll on the cafes.

To adapt and sustain, many of the cafes have changed their decor and menus to serve a wider range of customers. But the battle is still being lost and last month, the news broke that B Merwan & Co., one of the best known Irani cafes, is also likely to shutter down for good soon.
