I'm not superstitious. I even make an effort at not being superstitious, as it can easily creep in --- but I would not stick that on a car!

You can bargain anything with god but not his price (100 trillion rupees!)

Always has been and always will be. Just make an appointment with the local representative of a major (or minor!) religious organisation.

Mind you...

I did ask for a plenary indulgence (a medieveval device: you pay money, and get a piece of paper saying, you sinned, ok... but it's all forgotten) in a UK Cathedral gift shop. All I got was a laugh. Which is what I was hoping for

Is there any symbolical importance for the wine shop just beside it?

Today while proceeding to Daman , I stopped at Kamats near Manor and saw this board in the restaurant, IF ANY LOOSE, actually he meant to say they are not responcible for any items LOST in the restaurant, but think of the meaning any way you like it .

Even us Brits have trouble with Lose and Loose!

Generally, though, we manage to keep Loss out of the confusion.

I know Ford are not high up in the car sales charts in India. Or is that one aspiring man?
