They sell you happiness but themselves can’t afford to taste the joy of it…
Do you remember getting attracted to merchandise like balloons, heart-shaped candies and bubble-blowers being sold by small road-side vendors, or to term them appropriately-hawkers?
Well, it still continues to attract my attention however the only difference now is that it’s not the products, but the hawkers!
I shot this image at Cubbon Park, Bangalore, India. This young lad is seen selling bubble-blowers to the forever busy crowd of Bangalore.
How many of these, do you think, is he able to sell off in a day? Well, in today’s era of technological amusements, any of us would hardly be pleased enough to pay for these inexpensive out-of-the-time instruments of joy.
Don’t you agree?
The only sight that drives my thoughts are questions like-is he the bread-earner of his family? Is he the only one? If so, then how does he manage to pull off two square meals a day amidst today’s frequent price inflation?
