Hi Edgar, thanks for puting the picture, it is very interesting, I believe that the word “Bakshish” is a turkish word, and the practice is practiced until now in very many countries, not only the Eastern Europe..I don.t believe that Traian Popovici gave a permit(Autorisation) for a dog, neither Ms Stella Popovici, I knew her personally, she was not such a woman….Hedwig
I don’t know about Stella but I definitely know about Traian and his brother Jenica (and his wife) that there was never a question of reimbursement for receiving help in any matter. Of course there were many others who did it for money and may be insinuated a Popovici connection for their own good.
It looks as if this “Monument” may be temporary.Is this the case?Is it a protest against current practices, rather than a denigration of the past?I am quite sure that this monument has nothing to do with Traian Popoviciand I also have full confidence in the accuracy of opinions expressedby Hedwig Brenner and Berti Glaubach.
If I’m not mistaken it’s an Austrian Maria-Teresa Taller
That’s nice. Whose portrait is on the Taler? The Sultan’s? Maria-Theresia?
The whole controversy, is I think useless. Yad Vashem is certainly to be believed. And, no pun intended, let sleeping dogs continue their sleep
On behalf of Floriana:
Charity to beggars. In Pakistan and India, beggars solicit alms by crying ‘baksheesh, baba!’.
Tipping. This does not correlate with the European system of tipping, as it also includes demonstrations of gratitude, respect or veneration. An offering to the gods may be considered baksheesh. A faqir may also ask for baksheesh but there is no thought in his mind that he is begging. In fact, in Pakistan and the Muslim world the giver of alms often salutes the beggar for having been given the opportunity to gain merit. In Egypt, baksheesh is often requested on top of fares to taxi drivers, and as service charges to waiters, doormen, shopkeepers, garage attendants, and many others employed in service sector jobs.
Outright bribery. For instance, a police officer may be swayed from arresting someone by a suitable bribe.
