Chawkbazar characters….. the sellers of Chawkbazar Iftar Market are not occasionals…. these people have been involved with this same business for many years…. creating traditions; building expertise through generations…. that is why I had discovered the same people there as I had seen two years back…. and they are some characters…. very much accustomed to seeing cameras, these sellers have a love-hate relationship with them…. they need the publicity, yet they don’t want those machines pointing towards them all the time…. occasionally, they would ask the photographer to step aside and make way, which is quite natural, considering the cramped nature of the place….
