Selling Stuff on bicycles is an old and common tradition in the Indo Pak Subcontinent.

  1. He certainly looks happy jn his job. He looks as though he’s on his telephone.

  2. I wonder whether we could sell our apples that way; so many are going to waste. Good shot.

  3. Thank You Little Nell and Bob Scotney-Yes he is on his phone-these sellers can afford mobile phones which are cheaply available -but fruit has a 'price'

  4. Interesting take on the theme. I don't think I've ever seen a bicycle seller like that, but it reminds me of when I was a Girl Scout selling Girl Scout Cookies door-to-door in our immediate neighborhood, pulling boxes of cookies around in my brother's little red wagon. :))

  5. I'm surprised they don't sell them by the "each" and forget about weighing them. That's quite a scale he has to set up and calibrate:)

  6. I spotted the scales too which adds some irony with an ancient technology and a modern one at the same time. Balancing a bicycle with that kind of load takes real skill even for a short distance.

  7. Dear Friends the scales are put away when the bicycle moves on road. Thank you for your kind visit and most interesting views.
