Lure of Bangalore Series

Name: Mangal Singh Yadav. From: Agra, UP. Why? To sell these dolls he makes.
Mangal Singh Yadav has been selling these dolls for 40 years now. He started out from outside Red Fort in Delhi. During the Indira Gandhi regime, when pavement sellers were cleared, he moved to Mumbai. After a long stint there, he is now in Bangalore. However his family members, including his grown up sons, are in Agra. We were happy to note that both of us still carry our expired second class Mumbai local train passes with us, wherever we go.

The rest of the Lure of Bangalore series.
