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 mat­inée 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.
