The Sunday Haul
This blog completes seven years. This is the first post of the eighth year of the blog.
With only two days to go for Ramzan, Abids on Sunday was a beehive of activity with hordes of shoppers thronging the shops that were kept open though it was a Sunday. Early in the morning on Sunday there was rain and I had almost dropped the idea of visiting Abids to look for books. But after a couple of hours the rain cleared out and I changed my mind since the Sunday wouldn’t be complete for me without the visit to Abids, without the half hour of chatting with my friends over chai in the café there. When I reached Abids I found that since the regular shops were open the pavement booksellers had set up shop in other vacant places.
