Excuse the pun but sheesh, that was too good to resist especially as anyone who has travelled in India will generally mention the word COLOUR somewhere in their recollections. The country is a serious assault on all the senses and nowhere is more prominent than in the markets, where vivid colours interact with the constant soundtrack of vendors and customers, gorgeous scents and frenetic energy.

In the depths of the market, we met this incredibly savvy, multi-lingual kid who invited us into his family shop to watch him hand-roll incense. We can’t say that we’d ever really put much thought into how incense powder ends up neatly on its little stick but hey, you learn something new everyday, right?! This video does not do it justice but here’s a quick peek at the ruckus of the market.
A beautiful, albeit cliche, glimpse of India at its best!
