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.
