desperate times on avenue road


Seen this saturday. Schools are re-opening, but only one shop on Avenue Road, Bangalore's text book bazaar, had this year's books. A hoard of anxious parents and somewhat less actual schoolchildren than you'd expect queued up outside, while the other shops, like the one pictured above, had to sadly turn customers away. A boy approached me, offering to get text books for me - at a 'special' price of course - but I had other things on my mind.
