In the narrow lanes of Sowcarpet, one of Chennai’s oldest neighborhoods known for its shops selling a variety of sweet and chaat goods, shopping items and also considered the center of the city’s North Indian community, we met Anand Kumar Bhowmick, 56 years old. , at Kasi Chetty Street while busy selling plastic items to customers.
