Swastika Cemetery

José: This is a contemporary Jewish tomb at Mumbai Jewish Cemetery. There is Jewish tradition to place a small rock over the tomb of visited people at cemeteries. But in India you often find large bricks instead. As the swastika, in India is related do god Ganisha (Ganesha), and use for "good journeys", personal, financial, spiritual, road trip etc, someone visited this tomb, 3 times and place traditional local made swastika bricks at the tomb. Probably a woman's tomb due to the "menorah", the chandelier. I can't read an Indian name written in Hebrew. Is someone could, please, do it.
