Bazaar Street

I come past Bazaar Street every evening and occasionally other times of the day. It is always bustling. I have never known the street to sleep. A profusion of flowers, the reflections of jewellery in the many-mirrored shops, desolate-looking party hats, temple gopurams and people who seem to be moving in sync to Enya singing in my ears.

Tough to capture shots from a moving auto…

A clay matka holds water that tastes of earth and rain. A call out to parched souls – come one, come all

Flowers, flowers everywhere – marigolds and jasmine and tulsi and tea roses

A woman pours out fresh jasmine flowers that she proceeds to string together with nimble fingers to make a mala, which can be worn in the hair or offered to deities
