College Street is the largest book market in India as well as Asia and the largest second hand book market in the whole world. But for me, it is a lot more than that. The place is not just ‘boi para’ for me. It holds a special place in my heart. When I was in school, I used to visit college street annually to buy books and stuff. But while returning, everytime, I just wanted to stay there a little more. The whole vibe of the place, the nostalgia, the smell of new books, the tram rides, the buildings, handpull rickshaws, the vendors, each and everything attracts me a little more everyday. I went down each and every lane, met a lot of people, came across great architectures, sniffed new books, and most importantly captured some of my favourite views.
