All about living in this crazy, wonderful city called Bombay

Bring back the books!!

When BMC chased away the footpath bookshops from Fountain and Churchgate, they had set up shop near Kala Ghoda. Now they have been forced to vacate that spot as well. And there is no sign of a relocation. Which is sad not only because my literary indulgence now puts a huge dent in my wallet, but also because these tiny shops are an essential part of Bombay's culture and ambience. Its a little like banning pavement cafes in Rome, street corner artists and hot dog stands in New York, or Sunday markets in London :(
