KOLKATA, India — My interest piqued by signs nearly everywhere I looked, I often resorted to taking photographs in order to reflect on their meanings later.
It wasn’t just the street signs, such as the one for Shakespeare Sarani, that caught my eye.
“Roll Chow Sanks Bar — Handicapped” was a curious one amid a row of what may have been food carts. I think it might have been a snack bar of some sort.
“Momo Club” was anyone’s guess.
One of the city’s wily dogs stopped for a look, though I think she was more interested in scraps than in explaining.
