The Mobile Shop

The puncture walla and his mobile shop. This is where I get air filled in the wheels of my motorbike. His stall was removed so he drives his shop to work everyday. Talk of innovativeness. ("कभी सोचा नहीं था की कार भी खरीदूंगा" ) "I had never thought I would buy a car," he told me with a smile, "but I had no option now so I bought this second hand car which is a huge financial burden but it enables me to keep my shop going." It may be a burden to him but am sure he will more than break even. This is something which I could not have imagined in the India of, say, 1990.
