Two men sat in their small tin shop under a tree that wasn’t a Gulmohar. They were busy at work though it was lunch hour. Few words were exchanged between them. There was mostly silence.

Shoe patterns were laid out on canvas cloth and the cobblers cut them with shears. These were later stuck together with adhesive.

The man said they were making chappals that would be sold in Commercial Street.

They continued; sitting there under the tree in a rusty make-shift shop oblivious to the steady stream of traffic.
