Multi pronged protection

Multiple protection
Multiple protection

While good luck charms and ‘kan drishti’ (wrath of the evil eye) protectors are very common, this shopkeeper seems to have gone overboard. He has a horseshoe for luck, Vinayaka for divine blessings, lemon and seven green chillies, alum on a black rope  and  sanctified ribbons for extra protection. Not leaving anything to chance.
