Mei the force be with you
This sight stopped me in my tracks, not just because of the misplaced capital Y, nor the intriguing "only for ladies" stipulation. It wasn't even the fact that the beauty parlour sign was in three languages. It was, I guess, just the combination of colours and the two contrasting entrances.
This was shot in southern Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) during a brief visit to India in October 2006. If you've read either of my novels, you'll know that India features strongly in my writing - after all, that is where I was born and educated.
