Deity on road

This man has set up a virtual temple on his push-cart, and takes it round Dhanavantri Rd., for the benefit of  pavement traders and street vendors who start work so early that they are pressed for time to visit a temple.



Business, it appears,  is not brisk for these shop-owners in front of the Ranganatha temple,  Srirangapatna. They cater to tourists. Most of them stop-by,  haggle over price, and  move on,  says a shop owner.
