Hawkers’ novel idea: a books-only zone

Anonymous Patron writes From Mid-Day Mumbai – Bombay,India The 45-odd booksellers lining the artery from Churchgate to Flora Fountain were evicted by the BMC on May 6.

The BMC swooped down on the booksellers and carted off nearly a lakh books saying they were acting on court orders and that the pavement was a no-hawking zone.

Angry over the treatment, the evicted booksellers say they want the government to designate a book zone in the city, dedicated to booksellers.”
