In Sarojini Naidu’s poem The Bangle Sellers why do the sellers go to the temple fair instead of going to other places?
In Sarojini Naidu’s poem The Bangle Sellers bangles are used as a symbol of happiness and prosperity. People buy bangles for their daughters and wife when all are happy and doing well in their life.
Lustrous tokens of radiant lives,
For happy daughters and happy wives.
When people are happy and affluent, they generally tend to visit the fairs. And that is why the sellers choose to go to the temple fair with the hope that they get good business in the fair. Bangles are not the objects of daily needs. So, if they chose to go to localities or other places, they might not get that much sale that they can secure in a fair where people come out of their happiness and spend some extra bucks.
Because there are lot of people who come to see fair and time of fair is limited to only once every year. That’s why there is so much crowd that someone can barely stand still. So hawker try their luck to sell their bangles in the fair.
- Because there are a lot of people who come to the temple fair
- Usually when they come, they are happy and happy girls and women are the prospective buyers of the bangles
- Because of the above mentioned reasons they tend to make good profit.
This is because the bangle sellers think about the profit they get from here as a lot of people come to see the fair and the more will be the people, the more will be the profit.
Visiting a fair is a happy occasion. Everyone loves to visit a fair and sometimes small fairs, usually in the villages, are held in areas adjacent to temples. Women, usually, go to temples to do obeisance. It is also a custom for traditional Indian women to wear bangles considering it to be auspicious. It is, therefore, quite obvious that they will visit the fair at least once. The bangle sellers display their wares at these fairs in the hopes of selling the goods to these women and their young daughters.
The temple fair attracts all people to it. Young maidens, prospective brides, and mothers all come to the temple fair and prove to be prospective buyers for their wares.
You can also add that temple is not only a centre of religious ceremonies but also a place promoting economic activity.
