The last time I wore glass bangles was twenty years ago !! My grandma , who lived with us at the time , loved buying them for me and I had a vast collection . The Chudi wala ( bangle seller ) would musically announce his arrival , calling out ‘chudi le lo’ , we’d ask him to come up to our home on the first floor and I’d select the ones I wanted or we’d find a bangle seller sitting with a basket of bangles in the market and buy a dozen or more !
Then my grandma moved to Goa and my love for bangles gradually disappeared.
Today , I happened to see a bangle seller with those vibrant rainbow circles of glass and I just had to click a picture . Couldn’t get out of the car to get a better shot , but this brought back some wonderful colourful memories.
Happy days 🙂
