1. Question
(a) When did the Kashmiri vendors travel to cities to sell their goods?
Answer: Kashmiri vendors traveled to cities at the beginning of the winter season to sell their goods.
(b) Why is it a hard life for the Kashmiri vendors? 
Answer: Kashmiri vendors have to travel to distant cities from their homeland of Kashmir. They have to stay in cheap hotels. They roam around the city streets all the day with heavy loads of clothes on their backs. They also have to shout for buyers and to bargain with them. So, it is a hard life for them.
(c) Why was the author surprised when his brother-in-law called the vendors?
Answer: The author was surprised when his brother-in-law called the vendors because they were not in need of any Kashmiri clothes from the vendors. He thought it was just time pass.
(d) "I felt sad and guilty at being a party to such behaviour." What does the word 'party' mean here? And what kind of behaviour did he refer to?
Answer: The word 'party' here means having association with any group. The author thought that his brother-in-law called in the Kashmiri vendors for no reason. He thought the brother-in-law would just inspect the clothes and would send him back. So, the author did not like that behaviour.
(e) Who was kind? What was his deed of kindness?
Answer: The brother-in-law of the author was kind. He invited the Kashimiri vendors with an intention to feed them. He urged his wife to offer a hearty meal.

Vegetables vendor: The tomatoes cost Rs 60/-, the cucumbers, Rs 55/- and the potatoes, Rs 35/- per kg.

6. Let's practice some grammar:

Work in pairs. Here are some sentences. Each sentence has a second sentence after it, with a blank.

 
(a) The wares belong to the Kashmiri vendors. The are their wares.


(b) The wares carried on the back of the younger vendor. He carried the wares on his back.


(c) The author's brother-in-law called out the vendors. He called them in his house.


(d) The author was unhappy when the brother-in-law called in the Kashmiri vendors.



Look carefully at the words that you have used in the blank spaces. They say something about the word before which they are placed. They indicate the person or thing with which they are related, or to whom they belong. Such words are called possessive determiners. (To possess means to own). Such words answer the question "Whose?". Example: Whose wares? Their wares. Possessive determiners are thus words that are placed before nouns and indicate possession or ownership of the thing denoted by the noun. Some examples of possessive determiners are my, your, our, her, his.
