Like Honey Bees Humming
At hand distance women sitting with
Leafy vegetables full of basket in front Ritu-bazar. A middle aged women yelling like " Chirrikura, Panaguntaku, Chukkaku, Gongura & Palakura".
Their screaming mixed in sounded bazar, None listens to them...
A bag full of curry leaves placed
On sheet at ground in a lined bunches
All of them, coming from neighbouring town lets
All are agricultural women.
Actually their origin Cultivation...
But ample cross legged sitting
Either sides of roads, no worry about dust and air pollution, There yelling with throat strength like, "Palaku, Panagantaku, Chirraku, Gongura".
They not from B-schools
But their appetite drives them successful business women,
After sunset, as usually rates cut down....
Like four bunches for Ten rupees
Their announced gather a handful customers, all sweeping in few minutes...
They breathed happy sigh,
Their basket, plastic sheet kept at
Knowing shops, Rushing after sharing auto for easy going home,
Keeping house around, boiling rice, preparing curry for husband and children, after dinner, going to bed in peace full mind, All living delighted successful business women like, inhaling deep air leaving tired world
Into peaceful world in sleeping.....
Subtle Working Happiness

You have narrated it so nicely. I remember the times when I used to visit such small vendors.
