A trip to the vegetable and flower market, Delhi

We arrived before dawn, far outside of the city centre down motorways and dirt tracks shrouded in the night. The further we walked through the market the light rose to meet us to display a kind of chaos i’ve never seen before; Mafia-like fruit seller bosses, cows wandering and eating seller’s wares as they please and men upon men upon men. Not a woman in sight, we stood out for more reasons than one. A locals market far away from tourists eyes, city sellers come to buy their wares to sell in the inner city streets later that day before rising well before the sun the next day to do it all again.
