Default To jean113: probably petals

Thank you Jean,
I also first thought it was rice, or maybe some other kind of grain, but now I rather believe he was selling petals of some flower, to be used for garlands, like those the lady in the WS was making. The could be used as offerings, to hang on a religious sculpture, or by girls and women to decorate their hair. It's very common in southern India.
Best regards,
