Bartan Shop

This is a utensils shop in Pharganj. The shop sells steel utensils, known in the vernacular language as 'bartans'. There are glasses, plates, knives, spoons, forks... and anything you name, you can have. The best part ofcourse is that you can bargain to your heart's content in such shops where variety is beyond anything you can imagine and that too within such a small cramped space.

I saw your comments on Abraham's blog and am so happy to find yours. I made a wonderful trip to your city and made a trip around your subcontinent with a group of teachers from the US in 1986, a long time ago but I'll never forget it. It was an eye-popping, lovely adventure!

Looks like the Ali Baba's cavern! :) I'd try to find those lunch tins (it's 3 tins on top of each other that you can carry with a little hand). I find this so charming.
