Because they don’t sell products; they sell stories.

Let me tell you the story of Naren Da. The most popular bangle seller in my Nani’s town. Hindu weddings in small towns till date follow a tradition where all the ladies in the house buy new bangles for different ceremonies. Not that they don’t have fancy bangle stores in the close proximity, but Naren Da’s local made and severally refurbished old age cart is preferred over the ostentatious branded stores. Two days before the wedding, and it is that time of the day when everyone is done with their busy morning shift of allotted wedding chores followed by a sleep inducing lunch. At the long standing wooden gate of the Haveli, stands 60 years old Naren Da with a Damru in hand playing it loud enough to signal his entry. A skinny kid in his half pants playing marbles at the gate scampers inside to announce the entry of the most awaited Da. All the ladies in the house gather near the Veranda below the big Banyan tree and circle Naren Da. The old man settles down with his cart, huffing and panting, gulping down a glass of water he begins, “Haven’t had time to have a single drop of water since the morning Ma, had to walk 4 miles in the scorching heat, such is the magnificence of the land, only Goddess Kali will know”, he looks up and mumbles a chant and closes his eyes, “Blessings of the Goddess, not a single brick has changed in the Haveli since Shankar’s wedding, I had to sell 3 carts full of bangles to all my sisters here,” he looks as Nani, “Right Ma, was it 3 0r 4?” He then unwraps the fresh glass bangles, purposefully making a crinkling sound. Naren Da personally asks Nani to extend her hand and try on her size of bangle. He then explains the significance of the long preserved tradition of the eldest lady trying on her bangle first. Soon enough in the flow, he starts rolling out his best picked stories from his large neighborhood. From the royal and small weddings he’s been to, from the beautiful brides to their funny looking grooms, from the times when they had baraat with lanterns and bullock carts, from his stories of record breaking count of Jalebis his nephew once ate to the earthquake in 1993 that destroyed the town, from the ‘Foreign return’ Chief Saheb to the adventurous couples than ran away and got married, from the Godman in the neighboring town to the midnight ghosts he saw, he makes it a point to cover them without missing out on the intricate details. Da knows every stone in the town and makes sure that it isn’t left unturned. The atmosphere is full of stories. Funny. Exciting. Sad. Shocking. Look from a distance, you can notice constantly changing expressions on their faces. Laughters. Sullen faces. Gaping mouths. Emotions animate the otherwise quiet and dull afternoon like in a matinee show playing on the old screen in an open field. It has been 3 long hours now, the sun is glowing bright before sinking; the small girls and women have their best fitting bangles in their hands. Their curious eyes still traveling time with his stories, their faces beaming with reflections of different colors of the bangles. Red. Green. Yellow. Blue. And Golden too; or is it Silver? Yes, maybe, you couldn’t tell. Naren Da wraps the leftover bangle shards in a faded pink cloth, “Don’t pay me for the broken ones, Ma”, he gets up, “Only pay me what I am worth for, all good and bad is dedicated to the Goddess”. All the ladies look up and close their eyes along with the old man, mumbling the chant. Nani hands him over some notes, and he keeps them in his pocket without counting. He thanks her by touching her feet, “I will come for the Jalebis at the wedding, Ma” Like a solo backpacker, Da’s old figure makes its way out of the long standing old gate of the Haveli carrying along all the stories, slowly fading away in a silhouette. The ladies are still lost in his words.
