The joys of traditional spices

Mmmmm...

I love the description on this menu. Unfortunately didn’t actually try the tikka from this overpriced cafe in Bikaner.

Now, I’m hungry.

High pressure sales

Silk, glorious silk

That’s silk-wallah Om Prakash Jain in the background. He runs an upstairs shop in a back-alley garment market in Bikaner.

Firangi walk by and he orders up cups of tea and unfurls his wares. With me, he did not make a sale. But I thanked him repeatedly for the chai.

Low light photo, unfortunately.
