Hello everyone, this blog post is all about a typical Indian bazaar. It is a bazaar where we indians purchase everything. From hair clips to glass plates.. We have everything in this indian bazaar. Bazaar is a typical persian word which has been used in hindi as a place where buying and selling goes on. In this blog I’m going to write about new market which is in kolkata, a place where you find everything on the roadside, from chaats to lingerie, all will be displayed on roadside. It is a famous street shopping destination.
I am definitely writing about street shoping in this post of mine.
Wow! Girls I’m looking at this shopping haul of mine as a boon because I have purchased these items on the street. The hawkers queue around the side of Grand Oberoi at the esplanade. There are books, perfumes and dresses, salwar kameezes and also trackpants, all in two sides of the lane, it also stretches till new market area outside hogg market.
Many years ago I bought an second hand fashion magazine from a newmarket hawker. It was Vogue, a 10 year old magazine, I bought it and read it. It was a fabulous find. A magazine which gave me a taste of fashion, the American way. There was an interview of a famous actress whose name I’m forgetting. She was also a girl friend of Johnny Depp, I dnt know whether she was at that time. But yes, the interviewer and the writer, which can be both the same person wrote in a manner and described the ambience so well that I took up writing like her.
The street hawkers are mostly selling anything and everything at this Indian bazaar. I saw some dolls, skateboards and also toys which which cost a bare minimum of 250 rupees. All these gave a colourful air to the streets. Once or twice I thought of buying rubber bands for my hair, although I have short hair. So, those beautiful and soft rubber bands are waiting for my hair to grow long. I liked it that there was so many options for my hair.
So, the street shopping part of mine was that, I bought two salwar kurtas, one chappal and a baby dress for 250 rs each. The baby dress I had to gift to someone so I rechecked my choice with my family. And also at the end of the day my pocket money was over. I had no money to eat except for papdi chaat and lemon tea. Lemon tea was 10 rupees and a bit costly for me because we get lemon tea for rupees 2 at my native place, Purnea, Bihar.
I wanted to have two cups of the same tea but I had no money, not even 10 rupees in my purse.
So, I happily came home lusting for makeup too. Ya, we have makeup at lowest prices too. I promised myself that next time I will definitely go shopping in new market with a little more money and also buy makeup and stoles.
So, till then happy reading!
