Meanwhile, Everyone's Forgotten About Mumbai's Pavement Booksellers

"If you want a copy of Chaucer’s Wife of Bath’s Tale (slightly scuffed) for about 20p, or Increase Your Height – Well Tried Methods for Wonderful Results (80p), or a clutch of Danielle Steels at 65p each, this is the place to come. There are tales of first editions of A Passage to India changing hands for 60p."

- Stephen McClarence on the "world's biggest weekly book market" in Daryaganj
