Mumbai, menopause and madam – Bundi

BANGLES, BARTERING AND LOTS OF GIGGLES

I had some fabulous fun bartering over bangles…

image

…with this wonderful character in Bundi, Rajasthan.

image

Neither of us refused to budge from our “final price”.

image

We haggled…

image

…and haggled…

image

…and haggled…

image

…laughing all the way.

image

And we had something special in common. While I was there with my daughter, sitting beside her was her mum.

image

And she was a hoot too…

image

…with a story I’m sure etched into every line of her face.

image

After HER daughter’s “final price” was reached (after all, who could argue
with that smile)…

image

…we convulsed into laughter again as we saw another mother and her baby saunter past.
