Pharmacy in Bangalore

I was riding my bike down Arabic College Rd when I spotted this shop. I didn't stop, just snapped a picture on my way by. The middle part of the sign say "Unani Medicine". This system of medicine traces its roots back to Hippocrates in ancient Greece. It has mostly disappeared as a distinct system in the rest of the world but is alive and well in India. It was brought to India by Arabic traders hundreds of years ago in is mostly popular among the Muslim population.

But of course I took the picture because of the last line of the sign--which speaks for itself.
