Bazaars rise up generally in cities and citadels, ports and towns, stands and stations. In India bazaars are a few in number. They are far less in number than the village markets. Even these small number of bazaars are not properly organized.
An Indian bazaar is a collection of small shops. Large shops are few in number. These shops stand by the sides of the road. These shops are very poor in structure. The shops are opened generally at 8 A.M. and are closed at 10 P.M. In an Indian Bazaar, there are a great number of betel-shops. Next to them, there are tea-stalls. Then we find the sweets-stalls. Besides there are the shops of grocery, stationery, textiles and so on. In most of the shops the owners themselves are salesmen. They cannot afford to have separate salesmen in their shops. At night they light up electric bulbs and in absentee of electricity, they light up the petromaxes.
An Indian bazaar is very dirty. It is the dirtiest place in the world. The drains are broken. They are not properly cleaned. The roads are not good. They are full of filth and rubbish. Many times the stinky refuse deposited in the drains cannot find an easy outlet an so it over-flows the and spoils the streets of the bazaar. This dirty and rotten water stinks in air and spoils the atmosphere. Most of the bazaar people are poor in health. They do not look to the sanitation of the bazaar. The Municipality is also a poor organization. It cannot supply the streetlights and the drinking water properly.
An Indian bazaar is more than a hell. None except the money-making people, likes to remain here. It is the duty of the Government to remodel the Indian bazaars. People of the bazaar have also a sacred duty to improve it well.
