' Do You want to buy my fish or not.........'

fisher women selling fish

' Do You want to buy my fish or not.........'

Its not a threat nor is it a request......, but its a statement hurled at you by a busy fisher woman of Mumbai in a distinct and definite authoritative tone if one tries to bargain too hard with her.The fisher women handle the selling of the fresh catch from the seas every morning .Typically, the fisher men go for fishing in the high seas and the job of selling the fish is left to the fisher women who go about their job like a true professional.She can be ruthless and requesting,friendly and aloof,calm and agressive all at the same time but one thing is for sure; she does manage to sell all the fish by the end of the day.
