Exploring Delhi's Street Market - Part 1

I am totally, 100% not a mall person. Reason 1: I can’t afford most of the things there, leave alone shopping there; I have to think twice before buying a soda can. I am not a cheap guy, but how can I spend when it’s so expensive, way above my wallet. Reason 2: I can’t stand those sales people with their fake smile.

I am more of a crowded market or a bazaar kind of person where I have to push my way through. I may not be the best bargainer in the city but I love to bargain. It gives me the feeling that I have the power to negotiate. Another reason why I love these places is because the people here are real.

Recently I have been exploring lots of street bazaars in New Delhi and last Sunday I went to a nearby market which happens every Sunday.

Here are some pics from there.




The Bed sheet guy. Everything in his stall/shop is for rs 15o.. Its freaking cheap



Shirts, Shirts everywhere but not a single shirt to wear.







Yeah, they even sell pirated DVD's



This is a key/lock/knife guy and you will see such guys almost everywhere. These guys are everywhere, outside my home, malls, outside movie theater .......



Remember the movie Titanic? Girls don't deny that you did not cry while watching this movie. Titanic is still a hit here in New Delhi, people still buy their t-shirts, scarfs and even jeans.. Serious, i saw some jeans with the Titanic pic in it.
