n.— «He is a “tripper”—carrier in lay man’s parlance—who visits Bangkok and Hong Kong to get jeans, shoes, ladies’ tops, T-shirts, memory cards and iPods, which find their way to the retail racks in Five Star Market in Kidderpore, Metro Plaza and Vardaan Market. “Making trips to these cities, purchasing merchandise and supplying them to markets in Calcutta has been my occupation for the past eight months,” says Sajan, in a white T-shirt and blue anti-fit denims.» —“Tobacco gains in tripper trade” by Zeeshan Jawed The Telegraph (Calcutta, India) Mar. 6, 2007.
