While wandering around the city of Pune, I came across a place where an open-air market was being held. Street vendors were selling their own goods on the street. The elderly woman in this photo was one of such vendors. She was wearing a bright blue saree and was selling both sugar apples and apples there.
She had two baskets in front of her, one filled with sugar apples and the other filled with apples. There was also a simple balance lying beside it for weighing. A simple balance was used to weigh with some weights.
What caught my attention more than the sugar apple, which is rare in Japan, was the one drawn on the woman's hand. It looked like a tattoo. It was probably carved with a meaningful pattern, but I couldn't figure out what the pattern on the woman's arm meant.
