ina market: patakas and vegetables

oranges and apples. duck and pork. crabs and shrimps. and some firecrackers too. ina market in south delhi is where people go to buy asparagus, mushroom and broccoli after watching cooking shows on lifestyle channels. it is also the place where journalists and activists go to talk to shopkeepers about food inflation and foreign direct investment in multi-brand retail. 

there is also a liquor shop at the market, next to an eatery that serves kerala food. from here, the all-india institute of medical sciences is one minute away as the pigeon flies. across the road is dilli haat.

ndmc is the new delhi municipal council, not the north delhi municipal corporation, whose acronym doesn't exist. the shortest form of writing north delhi municipal corporation is simply north corporation. ndmc, unlike the three other corporations of delhi -- north, south and east -- comes under the central government. 

hershey's and pringles by the road. no one is immune to globalisation, including the humble ina market.
