An Indian Bazaar
India may become more and more modern with time. It will however not loose its traditional bazaars. In an Indian Bazaar, one gets almost everything from gold ornaments to terracotta utensils, cloth, and other items of daily use. A typical Indian market is usually around a square and on either side of a street. From here there may or may not be other small streets branching out. Unlike yesteryears, when each market used to specialize in a single commodity like ornaments or clothes or utensils or bed linen, today the market has become a mishmash of various commodities which are sold in one place. At any given time the market is full of people buying and selling goods. The shopkeepers sit on the outside of the shops generally on the floor, waiting for customers to come. Some even call out for customers. Besides these shops, there are also petty vendors who sell, fruits, vegetables, and plastic goods, from a cart. They often move from one place in the market to another, till they find an appropriate place to sell wares. Various shopkeepers hang large banners and stick posters, which announce the sale or arrival of some new products. One can hear song announcements on the public address system of the markets all day long. Another important feature of Indian markets is the free-roaming They can be found almost everywhere in the market. They are generally a nuisance.
