This painting was executed in India as the previous ones were too. In this painting many Indian citizens are heading towards the market, Muslins and Hindus have the same purpose: to get groceries, fruits and vegetables. On the right side, a mosque is represented, usually painted in green. On the foreground you can see some motorcycle riders poised at the intersection. You can see on the right, a muslin couple, on the left the typical south indian Hindu couple. The composition is complex, almost divided in two halves: on the right the mosque and the muslin couple on a motorcycle, on the left the traditional hindus on their motorcycle rides. It becomes all mixed up in the back where the crowd is hurrying towards the market street or coming out loaded with shopping bags. As far as the linear composition goes, the figures on the left are inviting us within the painting on a diagonal, while the muslin couple as well as the buildings in the background are forming an horizontal line, stabilising the composition.
