Setting up…

Street vendors are a part of Indian culture, and sell pretty much everything from fruits to little plastic doodads. Seasonal fruits that you wouldn’t otherwise find the market are particularly popular – these women were selling plastic bubble-guns and bead necklaces



About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  2. It is so incredible to me at least that through this wonderful blogging world, I get to see and learn about other parts of the world I will not ever visit. Thank you for this image. Back in my youth I loved bangles FYI. I simply adored the sounds they made. 🙂 ❤

  4. My grandma used to love buying bangles for me from street vendors about 20 years ago , those are my best memories of street shopping . Do you have a close-up shot of a plastic bubble-gun ? It sounds like fun , I think I am going to try and get one !
