Srinagar, June 11 (ANI): With tourists thronging Srinagar in large numbers, the hawkers selling warm clothes here are making brisk business.

The chilly weather in Kashmir valley, a complete contrast to the heat wave in the rest of the country, has pushed up the sale of woolen clothes.

The hawkers sell garments like shawls, sweaters, leather jackets, gloves, fur coats and fur caps on the banks of the Dal Lake.

"The weather here is very cold. The tourists come here from warm places. And therefore warm clothes sell a lot. Fur, shawls, any warm clothes sell a lot," said Tariq Ahmad, a hawker.

There are more than 38 hawkers, who have been selling warm clothes on the banks of the Dal Lake.

"When we came here, it was pretty sunny, but now every one is crowding around the hawkers. They are not only buying clothes for themselves but also for their relatives back home," said Prabhat Kumar, a tourist. (ANI)
