A shop keeper called me in and we had a discussion about what I thought of India ….

He mentioned – corruption, politics, illiteracy, poverty and pollution being his concerns.

His friend was a barber. Cost 30 rupees / NZ$0.60 / US$0.40 for a cut. He could make anywhere between 500 and 1,000 rupees / NZ$10.40 – 20.80 / US$7 - $14 a day.

Water chestnut which is a popular street fruit called as “Singhara”. When peeled, it is white in colour from inside. Can be eaten as it is, boiled or roasted over coal served with salt and chilli.

After watching him for a while, he gave me a jalebi. A street food sweet, jalebi is found across India and even Iran. Deep fried flour batter, then soaked in sugar syrup. It can be served both cold or warm in a circular shape, similar to pretzels. Hot jalebi can be enjoyed with hot milk (cup) or cold and can be by itself or with Rabri, an Indian condensed milk dessert.

Yes, it was very sweet. I offered to pay but no. Again, something that I had enjoyed in Mumbai.
