• Meet Ishaque, owner of the Curios Center on Mutton Street. Born near Bycullah (South Mumbai), Ishaque put in four unglamorous years working as an assistant at an antique shop in Colaba before taking every rupee he owned and opening up a store of his own. At first, he used to travel all over Northern India searching for brass goods, but he’s since made a name for himself and now the brass comes to him.
