He asked the man:
“Do you have spice of life?”

The shop keeper said:
“We trade in chili and turmeric,
Ginger and dried onion,
Cloves and bay leaves,
Cardamon and black cumin,
Cinnamon and panchphooron,
Pepper and aniseed,
Cashew nuts and coriander,
Garlic and capsicum,
Mint and pomegranate seed,
Raisins and semolina,
Curry leaves and jaggery,
Ata and beson,
Vinegar and yeast,
Yellow lentil and chana dal,
And so many more.

But we trade not in spice of life.”
