  • Viewpoint: As night falls
    Just before night falls is a time when way-side shopping strangely picks up. It is the time when office goers are returning and find the vegetable vendors, the snack handcarts, the desperate hawker in his/her way and they stop to do that little shopping that a fixed time table has not permitted. In twilight and in the flash of lights just turned on these vendors who have stood the day out gain a fresh look. The lights cast a different glow on their wares and visages and invite the hurried buyer. A glass of tea, a hot bonda brings in the cheer, or that little toy or even ahousehold item bought and sold gives some diversion, a relief,a joy or thrill in the mundane regularity of daily life. For the seller the sound of coins in his cash box and the warmth of notes in his tired hands at the fag end of the day bring in contentment and a sense of a job well done. The evening street bazaar has its own little charm, however small. Photos: Thulasi Kakkat
