Devipujak is real ‘pichhadi’ jati of Gujarat. They usually sell fruits, vegetables. Their women roam door to door and swap cloths in lieu of utensils. They sell second hand cloths. They have no shops, so they sit on footpath . This picture shows the footpath market of devipujaks. Around one hundred men and women sell second hand cloths here on the bustling and crowded road near Delhi Darwaja of Ahmedabad city. Though they are obstacle for the traffic, nobody dares to remove them. and of course, they need alternative arrangement. Modi could have given them shops at subsided rate, but he has been busy in givivng land to Ambanis and Adanis. Poor Devipujak child is the real chay bechanewala, who is not getting any benefit of ‘vibrant Gujarat.’
Modi: the happy, prosperous trader
In Ahmedabad all modis have their own shops, where they sell milk, dahi, lassi, halva. they are not backward. This pic shows shop of a modi in Dariyapur area of Ahmedabad. The cost of any shop in any area of the city is not less than five million. This is not exaggeration. Modis are millionaires in Gujarat.
