Located in the centre of this laid-back city at the border with Myanmar, the Ima Keithel (or “mo-ther’s market” in local Meitei language) is the biggest market in the world run and managed exclu-sively by women. Around 10,000 of them work here every day, selling every kind of local product from, food to textiles, knives, toys and religious items.
