Khari Baoli- Old Delhi

This picture was taken on March 21, 2009 from the front of No15 Chawal Wala shop in Khari Baoli, Old Delhi. It is one of the few places where you can actually see the human traffic jam. With men, machine, bovines, canines and other nines battle it out for the limited space. It is main wholesale hub of grain and spices in Delhi. At the right side of this road, amongst the numerous shops lies Fatehpuri Masjid and at the left Old Delhi Railway Station. Unlike many other people me and my friend enjoy coming here, after all delicacies of Chandi Chowk are only nearby.

I clicked at the bigger picture and so many people going about business as usual! Good click.

Hmm...fairly similar to what we have Masjid Bundar, a wholesale marketplace.

BTW, have heard of Chandni chowk much, also saw it in Delhi-6. How much real is it ?

@Mridula, bang on target the same thing was in my mind when I took my camera along to that place.

@ Megha, never heard about masjid bandar though :(.

I haven't watched Delhi-6 so I can't tell...but Delhi 6 was a flop but CC isnt
