This particular village haat was also a place for me to understand the tribal enterprises. I learnt that most of the tribal women gather in the market to trade their products and purchase their food supplies for the week. On an average, they pay around Rs 30 per person for transportation. You can see two tribal women paying the vehicle’s owner (pics below) and their items that they have brought to sell.
And lots of cash transactions!
And last but not the least, the presence of a village sethani “landlord’s wife” really made a difference.
