Delayed by six months, but here at last, is the second collection of the Mapusa Market Repair and Recycle stories, belonging to a series of videos that Prashant and I have been making to highlight the repair points in Mapusa Market, where people fix your stuff to make it last longer. In this edition, we get to meet Nivrutti Palyekar, who can alter and fix your clothes for you, Pravin Narvekar, who runs the only shop in Mapusa where you can get your analog speedometer fixed, Ramu Bhomkar the raffu specialist who can darn a gaping hole in your garment to make it completely invisble, and Valenino Britto, the electrical repair man who fixes mixers, blenders and other kitchen appliances with the skill of an expert surgeon.

The videos have been collected into a playlist that plays them one after the other. Remember to switch on ‘Captions’ if you can’t see the English subtitles that are provided. (To play only a specific video, click on the Playlist button at the bottom of the player, and select the video you want from the list that will appear).
