Notes on the Geography of India Themes: Merchants and Markets
A portfolio of market scenes--short on information but, as anyone who has been to India will anticipate, long on color.
Market near the Malaprabha irrigation scheme, Maharashtra.
Goods spread out on the pavement.
Vegetable market in Secunderabad. Camera-shyness is unknown, with the exception of Muslim women.
Fruit on display.
Corn, fresh or roasted as a snack.
The Tupperware and Rubbermaid invasion: Belgaum, 1981.
Pray for calm, dry weather.
Market north of Warangal.
Blocks of crude brown sugar (gur or jaggery), sold by weight. Better than chocolate.
Village shop. That's all there is: just one small room fronting the street.
A bit of everything: small packets are standard, because many villagers can afford only single-use quantities.
