Basti in India, is a village. And bazaar, of course, is a marketplace. Now you may call me biased but I will tell you that in a world of hypermarkets and mega malls, our little village bazaar can hold it’s own. From safety pins to pickled mango, you will find every thing you need — and those you never knew you needed!
Like tambul pata or tobacco leaves, for instance. Roll your own cigarette, sit back and enjoy the drag. Ah bliss!
As you can imagine, all the produce is one hundred percent organic though nothing is labeled so!
If the sun comes up too strong, you can always chill with some home-brewed rice beer and a plate of fried chicken.
What’s more, you can even visit the salon for a quick haircut — there’s no need of a prior appointment either!
