Soul Sante December 2014

T
his weekend, I had an opportunity to visit the famous “Soul Sante”. For those who don’t know about it, it is a flea bazaar where handmade products will be sold. Little stalls will be put up and it connects the buyers and sellers.

I read a lot about Soul Sante and was curious to experience it myself. “Sante” (pronounced as “San-thay”) means Market. It is also a place where there is fun, food and festivities. You name it, there was a stall for it. Clothes… Slippers… Bags… Shawls… Jewellery … Stationery… Decorative items… Quirky mobile phone covers and pouches… Paintings… And so on…The food varieties varied from Goan to Mexican… Mumbai-walla to Punjanbi…

The crowd was amazing too. There were several fashionistas wearing branded clothes, boots and bags. (Yes, Boots). People carried a Kingfisher beer can and drank openly… Pet doggies roamed around freely… Thick nicotine from cigarettes filled the air… Live music was on. Mostly English though. In short, it was so-not-like Bangalore. It felt like a different land!

There were so many different items… Sharing my evening at Soul Sante which I captured through my camera’s lenses…
