We’re proud of you, Cookie Monster. We know sharing can be hard sometimes. But you rose to the occasion.

Buying and Selling in the World’s Bazaars, Souks, and Markets

In The Bazaars of Hyderabad
What do you sell, Oh ye merchants?
Richly your wares are displayed,
Turbans of crimson and silver,
Tunics of purple brocade,
Mirrors with panels of amber,
Daggers with handles of jade.

What do you weigh, Oh ye vendors?
Saffron, lentil and rice.

What do you cry, Oh fruitmen?
Citron, pomegranate and plum.

What do you make, Oh ye goldsmiths?
Wristlet and anklet and ring,
Bells for the feet of blue pigeons,
Frail as a dragon-fly’s wing,
Girdles of gold for the dancers,
Scabbards of gold for the king.
Sarojini Naidu (1879-1949)
Known as The Nightingale of India
