Lovely collection! We could repeat this in Bangalore as well (full of obituaries).

I love this book trek of yours around the city and the interesting books you found! I'm going to try that around London too! Thanks for sharing the most worthwile book places in Delhi, will come in handy for a trip planned there sometime next year; and along with touristy stuff, we will be buying up books too!
