    :) Typical spice girl.
    Though I can see mostly the spices of south India, the woman is in north Indian attire. Probably they would have settled there.

    Beautiful color and composition. It is nice to be able to get a glimpse of another way of life. I always enjoy your pictures for the glimpses they give me.

    Funny title, hehe. She did not know you were there, rauf. The textures here make me want to dip my hands in, but she would be angry and wouldn't be able to sell the spices then. I hope no wild bicyclist plows into her stand, those piles are so full, they would easily spill everywhere. Even if I just clumsily bumped her table, everything would spill out. She keeps it very neat.

    I really must learn more about spices.
    Incidentally Robert Clive's (Clive of India) hometown (Market Drayton) became the centre of the UK spice trade.

    CUCKOO JI this picture was taaken in Cochin, this shop is owned by Gujrati, very strange in Kerala

    RUTH There's a spice market, just a kilometer away, and and you can follow the smell and reach the market.

    ZAREBA, Actually this is a wrong glimpse, unusual in the southern state of Kerala.
    People from other states avoid doing business in Kerala, known for its labour unions strikes and
    intolerance. This shop is run by Gujratis who are settled in Kerala for ages, This is very unusual.
    I love kerala, but only for a week, not more. i will never settledown there. I live in neighbouring Tamil Nadu

    Than you SANDY Sorry, it took me a while to respond to comments

    oh Quoting BETH, the smell is very strong. Spices are called masaala in India, these spices are on the stronger side, so they are called Garam masaala, meaning hot spices. hotter than usual.
