West coast express is cruising in a steady speed. Small time vendors (some blind) are trying their best to sell their wares: Chinese made rubber cum sharpener, toys, magic books, ATM covers & Ground nuts. One common trait among them is that they loudly announce their wares. One lady selling shelled ground nuts shouts “Ground nuts, Ground nuts. Hot .. fresh “.A group of persons returning from north Indian pilgrimage are tired but happy discussing the pleasant memories about the trip. The elder person accompanying them asks the group whether they want ground nuts. They reply in negative. Meanwhile the ground nut vendor places her basket in the seat and forcibly offers two shells as a sample to the elder person and says “You need not buy it. Just taste them.” The elder person starts tasting and simultaneously the vendor smartly packages the ground nut in paper and hands it over to the elder person. No further questions, the deal is done and ten rupees exchanged.
