A: Yes I have been putting up a stall over here since the time that this bazaar used to take place on the road Q: Which one in your opinion is the better bazaar, older one or newer one? A: The older bazaar was better Q: Why do you say so? A: That bazaar was less expensive. There a single line would cost you Rs. 200 and now it cost you around Rs. 1900 each Also, this is a bigger bazaar. The customer doesn’t know where I am. Where he would find the item that is needed. We also don’t know… the rent is expensive here. This is weakness over here.. The business here is very low. Previously all retailers were doing good business Q: So who come here more? A: Both come here…foreigners too… also smarter (intelligent- hoshiar) people come here more Q: Who are the smarter people? 142

A: Foreigners… women who have their boutiques... They buy from us at a lower rate and then redesign it and send it abroad or sell it in their shops at higher prices.. to lower prices is inherent in Pakistanis Q: Do you put up a stall elsewhere too? A: I put up a stall here too and near Haji camp too Q: What is your income from here? A: This is all based on luck... Sometimes it is 10,000, sometime 15k and sometimes even 5k. This is all based on luck. I sell things costing me Rs. 500 at Rs. 1000-1200 Q: what is your name? A: M. akram khan Q: If there is a Pathan customer, would you sell at a lower rate to him? A: No. I don’t do that. It is our religion and our belief that matters in which we are all equal. I am not biased. I lower Rs. 50-100, offer cold drinks and tea to my customers Q: Do your old customers from previous bazaar come to you? A: Yes they do.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
