Positive Attitude
New Delhi, India. November, 2014. Shiwani sells necklaces along the sidewalk where her relatives Bindia and Katrina worked the last few years. She is in the 3rd generation of an extended family of walking vendors on this sidewalk of the Janpath Market. The siblings, uncles, and cousins commute up to an hour by public transportation to this sidewalk where they work like a team to pass information and watch out for each other. Each of them specializes in one product line. Success requires good English, social skills, humor, a positive attitude and thick skin. The best sellers amongst them may be hired by shops on this block.
