Village vignettes - bangle sellers

At every santa I, Kavya,and my daughter - we all get glass bangles. Its a small gift that I can afford, and the bangles scatter light into the hearts of women. Eashwaramma helps to choose as she wears only mtal bangles now after her husband died.
This time as I was choosing bangles, and old lady with snowwhite hair neatly plaited sat by me to help me choose. She advised me to wear six red bangles, and a green bangle on either end as that would suit the colour of my skin best. I did not know her at all. It does not matter in a village santa.
And so I love villages.
