Getting closer to the streets of Raipur!

I was at Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh yesterday!

To give you a quick idea about Raipur, it is a fairly large city and understandably as it is the capital city. But, what is extremely interesting is its buzzing street life where the hawkers sell all kinds of wares.

To beat the heat, one has the option of getting a ultra cool concoction of lime and mint with some powdered ice or some ice cool buttermilk from the moving carts or theylas (in Hindi).

Then, we have a maze of these small kinara (road-side or sidewalk) stores that sell interesting wares like sunglasses, leather belts, hat, caps and so much more.

It is such a joy to experience such small town behavioural patterns in such a large city!
