Karim's used books Nehru Place - Delhi 2011-02

New Delhi, India. March 2011. Karim piles his used books elegantly on the sidewalk in Nehru Place, one of New Delhi's largest shopping centers. Karim is actually an artist who will show you his work in a nearby gallery if you are interested. At his sidewalk book stall, sales seem secondary to artistic or metaphysical conversations.

 

Almost everything is for sale somewhere in Nehru Place, but the plazas have a reputation for cut-rate media and clothing. Nehru Place's buildings house big brand storefronts for computers and electronics, as well as countless shops offering supplies and repairs. On the balconies there is more variety in quieter stores, including high-end clothing and fabric boutiques. But the plazas are filled with open-air vendors offering huge discounts on DVDs, software, wallets, shoes, pants, you name it. Some of the best showman vendors work here.

 

Very convenient Metro station.
