Shah is a follower of Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha, whose followers wear a red dot on the forehead, which is known as a chandlo. It's surrounded by an orange U-shaped symbol.
Gangubai lived in the seventh lane of Kamathipura. It could not be called a cage because it did not have a smutty ambience. There were no doors with iron bars at the entrance. It was not cramped, and unlike cages, it was not grimy.
