Gliding like gentle giants on the Lake, they come from nowhere, bearing dignity, humility and exotic wares….sometimes flowers, Lotus and water lilly seeds, silver jewellery, embroidered cloth, papier mache artefacts.
The whole experience of shopping on water is a unique one! The sellers don’t harass, though one can see their eagerness to make a sale.
Living in a place where peace is the most dispensable commodity, Every day that goes quietly needs to be cashed in. As they patiently open box after box, all they ask of you is that you have a look and if you really like something, buy. The money you part with will go a long way for them… For they don’t know when the next day of peace will dawn….
