Ramzan nights (around Charminar)

To describe the Ramzan experience around Charminar as a sensory overload would be an understatement. There is so much to see, feel, hear, smell , eat or even buy and take delight in. The experience might even leave you wiser in consumer behaviour too and render you incapable of bargaining because you are after all a “king”¬†!

Ramazan Shopping

As it happens every year, the Eid shopping is a delight to the senses, a plethora of sights, sounds and not to forget the aroma of the delicious food that wafts around. A seasoned shopper might set out for great bargains. But the best possible reason to be there is a sum-total of the above – the experience!

I am inclined to believe that most of the shoppers go through the process  or arranging and displaying merchandise for the sole purpose of attracting women buyers.

Shoab

Shoaib’s dad made and sold bangle stands. When I was admiring the colours of the bangle-stands he called on his son,asked him to wear his new cap. His attire, expression as well as the background worked very well for the image.
