delhi book fair: stephen king for rs 20

because it's the delhi book fair.

this looked like a good product. but it was not for sale.

even they have a stall here. books, anyone?

learn it from the master.

finding brain.

got these for rs 20 each after running amok on a mile-high pile of unknowns. found them buried under a rubble of mills and boon fantasies (yes, fantasies). took about an hour of effort.

the delhi book fair, despite its shortcomings, is an island of relief on the vast skeletal pragati maidan campus, or perhaps the national capital itself. for some reasons media reports have not been kind to the event. but that's subjective. this underrated "down market" book fair, however, is the last stand in this city in these times when talks about the-end-of-the-novel-as-we-know-it are becoming a style statement.

for, a kilogram of onions cost over rs 20.
