I don't get the feel here. It's too cluttered - My eyes are drawn to the boy on the left and the little girl. You actually need to look and see that the shopkeeper is indian, but that alone does not give the "indian shop" feel.

Ditto with Rashkae, maybe you could have waited till the man & the girl left the shop then re-shoot it again.
Patience is needed...
