Chandni Chowk Road



It's not Delhi-6. This is Bangalore-51. It's not just a Chowk. This is the Chandni Chowk Road.

Only in Benglur would a Chowk's name be followed by Road. And our own Chandni Chowk Road is as interesting as the name. For example, the Russel Market end of Chandni Chowk Road is part of the Gujli. As the graveyard of old vehicles, electrical goods, lathe machines and anything recyclable and its second-hand market is called in the city. 

The Gujli is not as large as the one in City Market (New Bamboo Bazaar) but then Benglureans believe that there's nothing you cannot find at the Shivajinagar Gujli. Like the little shop shown above that sells all kinds of gears, nuts, bolts and fixtures for automobiles, lathe, milling and grinding machines.  And if you want your automobile fixed, you can seek the services of a roadside mechanic. Here's a humble establishment under the spotlight.

Nice images, with a very well composed intro of "Your" Chandni Chowk. Delhi-6 has something similar called Chawri bazaar.

Delhi 6 is in news in every blog possible these days.

Anubha: Yes. It's in the news and hence this post :)

Jyothy: I did wait. he wasn't around. He just left his tools in the open and disappeared. Some Bangaloreans still think that the city is safe.
