“Youth like to play with eggs along with colours in Holi. Eggs are smashed on head as part of celebration. I kept additiol 3 plates of eggs for the purpose. I sold all of them,” shopkeeper Dhanjit Kalita said.

“I had to turn down regular customers who opted to have egg for dinner. It was too late for them as I sold the whole box containing 12 plates. Each plate contains 30 eggs,” Sharma, another shopkeeper, said.
