Shivaji Chowk

Surviving Newspaper Stands of Mumbai: The Invisible Samrat

 There's a line up great people from King Shivaji to Buddha but it's called Samrat and that usually means Samrat Ashoka, the Buddhist Emperor. But there is no visual representation of him because there isn't any. If there is one, it would be Shahrukh Khan but that movie had a different take on Ashoka that didn't catch the fancy of people like Mamooty who played the role of Dr Ambedkar.

However, he is represented by the Ashoka Chakra.
