I dont think there are issues with hitting your children in India
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.
