We’re looking at a shop-window in which we can distinguish an image of the Hindu god Ganesha flanked by two attendants. At the same time we see the facades of French houses reflected in the windowpane. Two typical cultural images, one Indian, the other French, unexpectedly merged into one. It leaves us puzzled. Where are we, in India or in a provincial town in the south of France?
