Today's Power Quote

Consider yourself dead that
you have completed your
life up to the present time;
then start living as though
your life has been gifted to
you again.

BOOKS ON THE STREET


It seems that people stopped visiting bookstores which might have driven  publishers to go to pavements  to attract crowds directly.

This is a pleasing scene for me.  I think the book-sales have started in  mass scale, especially in the capital city.

The image you are seeing above, was captured by my mobile camera - Samsung E7 - some days ago which is just outside Moolchand Metro station, South Delhi.  The books were carefully chosen best-sellers neatly decorated on a raised platform attracting the educated commuters.

If you are Delhite, you can select any best seller at throwaway prices i. e.  hardly Rs.100 or Rs.150, at a bargained price.   Maybe they are pirated ones, but you could comfortably read without any hitch.  I already bought a couple of them.

I think the book revolution  just started in Delhi with books being sold   at Traffic signal points  in the midst of bookstores winding up their businesses  due to utter  discouragement meted out to them.

Hope good days are ahead for literate people as well as people in the business of book publishing !
