There are so many beautifully painted doorways in India. For Muslims, if they make the Haj pilgrimage to Mecca, they’ll paint a picture of the mode of transportation they used to reach the holy city. I’m guessing the owners of this house have not made the Haj, unless they flew on the back of a bird or swam on the back of a fish. Plus, you can see a little Ganesh between the two birds at the top of the door, which means they’re not even Muslim in the first place.
