With every second Indian now beginning to write a book, I often wonder what happened to the bookworms of Delhi. The people who liked reading, not just writing about their IIT, IIM, Mica – experiences. And when it comes to places in Delhi where you can truly be a bookworm, read, browse, buy and sell […]
