PHOTO FEATURE: Koraput, Bastar tribal haat bazaars

In India’s tribal areas of Bastar (Chattisgarh) and Koraput(Odhisa) districts, it is common to find weekly markets held once a week in rural areas. Locally known as haats or haat bazaars, these places are centres of feverish activity often centred around women. It is common to find women either buying stuff needed at home or selling items at haats, ranging from dried mahua to fresh vegetables. Many of them come on foot from nearby villages. In these rural markets, women feel comfortable and uninhibited. They are often spotted taking a break and enjoying local drinks.
