Delhi’s Patli Gali

, Hazrat-E-Dilli

We have all heard of
“Patli gali se nikal lo”
But have you seen Delhi’s patli gali?
I went there few weeks ago
Old Delhi’s #PatliGali
Only one person can go in at a time. You have to wait for your turn and woe betide you if you are out of shape
The narrow lanes behind #PatliGali are host to umpteen second hand bookshops
Once you enter Delhi’s #PatliGali you realise where Sunday’s book market spends it week in.


It was apparently created because of a gap between two havelis. The interior of one still exists
