Shop Sign in Bikaner: Starry Spicy Savouries, and Digital Photos

Click on image to view a larger version

To appreciate this shop sign in Bikaner in Rajasthan, you will need to be able to read Hindi. The translation just cannot do justice to it.

The sign was pointing to a shop where you could get digital photographs taken of yourself – and also order chaat, a spicy tamarind flavoured savoury (in many different forms) served in India. The sign is actually confusing because it is not clear whether it is for chaat or for photography.

The sign is also trying to play with the word ‘Bunty and Babli’ after a popular Bollywood movie by the same name.
