Two of my most cherished dreams came true over the last weekend – to visit Delhi and to see the Taj Mahal. I’m so, so happy the sudden chance to visit Delhi and Agra popped up and that we grabbed at it. I spent an awesome 5 days in Delhi and Agra, and they turned out to be among the best days of my life. 🙂
I fell in love with Dilli.. everything about it.. the old-world charm of Old Delhi, the hustle and bustle of New Delhi, the rich history of the place, the people, the food, everything. Agra left me spellbound and wondering about the kings and queens of the times of the Taj Mahal. I’m now much, much more open to study history, my knowledge of which is very poor. 🙂
When I saw the theme for this week’s Thursday Challenge – “MANY” (Candies, Crowd, Paperclips, Coins, Collections, etc. – I knew I had to put up these pics which I took at the Kitabi Sadak at Daryagunj, Delhi.
There is a HUGE market for books of all kinds held here every Sunday. I happened to visit the place on a Sunday, and I was awed by it. There are books and books and books…
…. and books…
… and then there are more books. 🙂
People read books here…
…. some stand on them,
… some throw them around.
With some chaat-wallahs who make mouth-watering delicacies,
Kitabi Sadak is a sight to behold indeed.
It is a book lovers’ paradise, and for a book-and-food-lover, it’s a must-must-must visit place. I loved each and every inch of this place.
This time around, I picked up a few books from there – Navy Husband by Debbie Macomber, Sea Glass by Anita Shreve, The Way We Were by Elizabeth Noble, and The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett – and all for a mere Rs. 160! Next time I visit Delhi, I’m going to Kitabi Sadak with more time on my hands than now, and with a huge list of books. 🙂
