Milk Seller Gopi at Doodh Mandi, Jaipur

Me- “What’s your name?”


Me- Where are you from?


Me – “The one on Ramgarh Road?”


Me – “You come to Doodh mandi in  Jaipur every day?”

Yes around 6 AM

Me –  “6 AM? what time do you start from your village?”

4.30…5 AM

Me -“what time do you get up and milk the cows?”

3.30 AM

Me – “So How many Liters do you sell, everyday?”

300 liters

Me – “And how many hours it takes you to sell 300 liters?”

It doesn’t take me too long. I have fixed clients like hotel, restaurant owners. Usually, I’m done by 11 AM

Its a tough life, being a milk seller!

    1. Lidiia.. I wouldn’t say he’s enjoying but he’s quite okay and not unhappy. In general Indians are quite adaptive with situations and accept it well. Like Bible we have Bhagwat Geeta and it stresses on accepting situations as your destined path. 🙂

      1. Thank you =D I think people who are not working for boss are much happier. I’m more happy to do freelance, write blog, travel, than to sit in a office. When I was working as a foreign economics manager, I was going to the work at 8 a.m. with tears on my eyes… It was not a bad job, but after the job I had plenty of students to photograph for the graduation albums, which I liked much more)

    1. Thanks Neel for heading to the”offbeat” section of this blog. I wrote this during my initial period of blogging. I didn’t have many readers then. I don’t think even ten percent of my current readers have read this post. Although it doesn’t fall in my current style of writing and had many grammatical errors, I think these posts are close to my heart. You can still find many such people here in Jaipur. 😃

      1. I don’t think I noticed any grammatical errors as the content itself is very enjoyable and to think that such things will soon become history. I still remember so many stories with our milkman who lived nearby and would come home to deliver in his big aluminium jar. Already those stories belong to another era.

      2. Thanks for affirming the readability of the content, Neel. Someone told me that my writing needs a big improvement when I started writing. I made a big change since then. I agree that this system may not survive over the years. If you want to see and experience this, do visit​Jaipur. We have a milk market here. You can click pictures.
