Meat & Vegetable market at Treasury Square, Aizawl

Treasury square sobji market (bazaar) is located at the middle part of Mizoram state capital Aizawl. In local language (Mizo tawng) Meat & Vegetable market is  known as Chawhmeh bazaar or Chawhmeh zawrhna (in case of meat market it is called sa zawrhna). Despite the fact that there is no clear cut division of works base on gender but in Mizoram and mostly in Aizawl markets menfolk engage in pork and beef business whereas womenfolk manage vegetables, chicken and fish business. Treasury square market is a small market, it's occupying only one lane between Venghlui and Tuikual south pavements. Back in December 2011 while coming back from I&PR conference hall i clicked the below pictures:
