A Village Market

A village market is a very important place for the villagers. It is a place where they go to buy and sell different things. It is, in fact, the primary centre to meet the people’s need and gear up their economic development. A village market is generally situated on the bank of a small river or canal or by the side of a highway. More often it sits on cross-roads. Thus it is connected with neighbouring villages with a network of communication facilities. In low-lying areas, the villagers come to market by small boats. It sits once or twice in a week and in the afternoon. Besides serving economic purposes, a village market has great social importance also. It is a meeting place for the villagers. Here they meet and greet their friends and relatives who also come to buy and sell their things. Thus they share and exchange their joys and sorrows and renew their contracts. Considering the importance of village markets, the authorities concerned should take necessary steps for their development.

A Railway Porter

A railway porter is a familiar figure in a railway station. He is in his blue uniform. He always bears his registration number. He generally moves around and looks for passengers who might need his help. When the train arrives he becomes very busy, moves from this compartment to that one in search of the luggage of the passengers. Generally, a porter is a healthy person and an expert in carrying goods and luggage. He has always a piece of cloth with him for putting the goods on his head. A railway porter knows very well about the railway timing and helps the passengers. He most of the time wants to get more from the passengers beyond the fixed rate. A porter generally obeys the command of the leader, the ‘Sardar’.

A Public Library

A public library is an establishment where books, magazines, and other reading materials are kept for the use of the people at large. Readers and members can read the materials of their choice in a public library. They can also take books to their homes in accordance with the library rules. The utility of a public library cannot be adequately described. It immensely helps in the spread of knowledge. An individual reader cannot buy or procure all the books and journals he wants to read. The students, teachers, and researchers cannot collect all kinds of materials they need to study. Besides, they find it difficult, even impossible to gather books which are out of print or of foreign origin. Public libraries are the reading houses which, in such circumstances, they can fall back upon. Moreover, a public library can develop the reading habit of the people in general. A public library is, therefore, a very important institution.

Paragraph - 109

A Fish Market

The fish-market is the busiest part of the whole market. The importance of fish in our daily meals cannot be overstated. The fishermen come from neighbouring places with a large variety of fishes-large and small. They sit on the ground with their fishes spread on the lids of their baskets. Thus they keep their fishes on display and attract customers. Here the hue and cry of the people are the greatest. Everybody higgles and the fisherman bargains. Sometimes, this gives rise to interchange of words and even to altercations. From a distance, one may naturally presume it to be a rowdy quarrel. A fish market is a very dirty and unclean place. It is probably the nastiest and smelly area in the whole market. But considering its great importance in our daily life, all concerned should put their mite to improve the general condition of a fish market.

Paragraph - 110

A Village Fair

A village fair is a great event in the life of the villagers. In some villages, it is held on particular festive occasions like the ‘nowroaj’ or the first Baisakh. It gathers on fixed sites. Such fairs take more or less the turn of a ‘bazaar’. The ‘Paush-Mela’ is also a very important village fair. A village fair is also held to commemorate the death of a saint or an ascetic person of the village. It gathers around his ‘Mazar’ or monumental graveyard. Such a fair is very solemn. However, the day of the fair is a day of great rejoicing. Traders from different places come to the fair and set up their temporary shops. They colourfully decorate their shops and put on display their articles to sell. These are relatively cheap fancy goods that attract the young boys and girls most. Other things that lure the children are ‘muri’, ‘binni’, ‘khoi’ and varieties of candies and ‘sweetmeats’. The women get their earthen utensils and wooden equipment bought from the fair. A village fair is also a place of joy and fun. Magicians, circus parties and opera bands also put up their tents in a village fair and add to the joy and delight of the people. Everybody waits for this annual event with great hope and attends it with profound pleasure.
