saturday night revelation!

Most of you regulars here know of the Restore's Bazar on saturdays. That's a sapping excercise. Some of us get the last of the packing done early that morn, then move the stuff from Visranti (an old age home at palavakkam where all the grains are processed, packed and stored) to the venue. Then the veggies arrive which is cleaned, sorted, take stock, unload and finally all items are displayed. This whole exercise that starts early in the morning is barely done and its time to open Bazar (4pm!). Then we have our regulars come there in the 1st 2 hours, later on its a trickle. Then we wind up grudgingly thinking more people shud have come, more stuff shud have sold, that shudnt have happened and all that. Then my wify and me set on our journey home after a long tired day.

There on the way on 2 satday nits we saw people flocking at at one particluar place. It was more like a stampede- noisy scene like quarrel. Then the curiosity killed, me that is, and we stopped over to check what the heck is that and its happening every week!(or atleast we see it every satday!).

Hey! that was a TASMAC! TN govt operated Wine shop (BTW why are they wine shop in india while wine is so rarely consumed?). ohmegawd! thats a revelation..more a prick that am yet to come off!

If only we were selling some Rice wine or wheat beer or organic Vodka people wud have been flocking. alas! we are after all sourcing healthy organic products and selling them at Chennai at no profit for the people's good.
