Street Sellers of India

After reading 'Street Sellers of India' by Andrew Crowe the Guardians of the Galaxy collaborated on a compare and contrast map and summary.

People connect with others across the world through imports, exports, migration and through travel. Andrew Crowe a New Zealander travelled to India and experienced street sellers. We are comparing India street sellers and New Zealand street sellers.

Goods and Services Outside - Tariq and Kyza
In India and New Zealand goods and services are sold outside. In New Zealand goods and services are usually sold outside at markets in car parks or fields. Whereas in India they sell their goods and services on the streets on the side of roads or pavements. We think India should have designated market places so pedestrians don’t have to walk on the road to get passed the vendors.

Stalls - Jacky and Sheena
In New Zealand they sell their goods from tables under gazebos. But in India they sell their goods on the floor on a mat. New Zealand stalls are more hygienic because the goods are off the dusty, dirty floor and are covered from rain and any fallen dust and dirt.

Drinks - Boston and Mizuki
Both street sellers sell drinks. In India they sell sugar cane because of the hot weather. In New Zealand they sell different types of drinks such as  freshly squeezed fruit juice, soft drinks and coffee and tea because New Zealand is colder. We think New Zealand market places are better because they have different type of drinks so when you are hot you can drink cold freshly squeezed fruit juice or soft drinks and when you are cold you can drink nice, warm coffee or tea.

Flowers - Rayan and Suyash
Both India and New Zealand street sellers sell flowers. In New Zealand they sell flowers in bunches for everyday occasions but however in India they sell flowers in garlands and bouquets for special occasions such as weddings. We think New Zealand flowers stalls are better because they have more variety of flowers.

Conclusion
Overall we believe New Zealand markets are better because the goods are kept cleaner and more hygienic as they are off the floor, there is a wider variety of drinks available and they are safer because people don’t have to walk on the busy roads.
