In the poem “The Bangle Sellers”, the sellers say that they bear their loads of bangles to the temple fair to find more prospective buyers. Here ‘temple fair’ has its own significance in the context of the poem. The very mention of the temple fair goes parallel with Naidu’s attempt to present a societal picture of the Indian cultural tradition. The temple fair is the place that perfectly connects the society’s emotions and the rich cultural heritage of the nation, thus providing the poem a flawless and effective setting for presenting all the colourfulness and emotions attached with the bangles.
