An Indian Haat Spot

February 03, 2017

Feel Good Friday

Markets and bazaars, or “haats” as they’re known locally, are trading venues for people all over India.  Whether in a tiny rural town or an urban megacity, these open air markets make your senses come to life as you take in the vibrant Indian culture.

Take the haat bazaar in Ahmedabad, India for example.

You’ll find a red-haat collection of jewelry…

alongside a haat spot for traditional fabric! 

So traveler Ektaa is putting you in the haat seat with her fabric find straight from the haat of Ahmedabad…

Paying It Forward

January 22, 2021

Wikipedia (ahem, my favorite source) defines “pay it forward” as “an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying the kindness to others instead of to the original benefactor.”

In other words, when someone does something nice for you, you do something nice for someone else, sparking an awesome chain reaction of kindness :)
