Introduction

"Your father's lust for life is reflected even in the vegetables he buys" -- my mother wrote to me once. A significant portion of the life of my father K. L. Kamat has been spent negotiating, bartering and buying vegetables and fruits. He has visited the vegetable and fruit markets of Malleswaram  everyday for the last thirty years! He is known to the street vendors as "the man with dirty shopping bags", "the Sir who buys cracked coco-nuts", "the poor dude who can only buy vegetables on sale", "the twin-banana lover" (see in India, the bananas are sold by count, and my father discovered that a twin-banana is counted as one), "the late night restaurateur" (a daily visitor, and bargain hunter must be a restaurateur!), "the kind Sir", and after he photographed some of them, "the photo Swamy".  The merchandise he buys is also story-worthy and as you will see in this series, picture-worthy
