Hindi in North India
Merchandise is available through two distinct venues: in shops or at the markets. Quality and price are defining features. With items such as books, for example, one might find the same titles both in a shop and along the road at a book market. The market jewelry is cheap and fun - the bangles are made of real glass. As far as clothes are concerned, there are lots of good bargains to be found in the markets (Delhi has an especially nice one) or one may prefer to go with name-brand, international shops, where price haggling is not appropriate.
