This is what the streets of a particular quarter in Old Manama look like on the weekend. The well-known “Bangali Gali” (lane of the Bengalis) is a favourite haunt for workers of all hues as well as families eager to strike a bargain – be it to buy vegetables and other fresh produce, or sundry gift items. Needless to say, it is a nightmare for motorists and traffic policemen. Life, however, goes on as usual and the activity has only gotten more popular with the passage of time, in spite of the authorities’ insistence it does not have official sanction.
