The peacock feather and the Bidi-makers...

The streets were full of people and vendors showing me all kinds of things related to you Krishna. Some were pushing their beautifully crafted Peacock feather fan some placed beautifully made idols but the shop next to one of your temples Krishna had some very old people making hand made bidis (Tobacco Leaves folded inside Bunyan tree leaves which is very popular among the country side for smoking). The whole generation of the family was involved in making those bidis but above all, there was a sense of peace within that close group which was permeating like the incense that was floating there from the incense stick under the beautiful image of Lord Krishna on the corner.
