Photo Essay

by Vikram Zutshi

Chor Bazaar located in South Mumbai, is one of the largest flea markets in India. The word Chor means "thief". Initially, though, it was called Shor Bazaar; Shor in Hindi meaning “noise”. The place was noisy and full of chaos. It still remains so. Chor Bazaar is Mumbai's famous market where tourists rummage for Ming vases and Antiques at throwaway prices. The main avenue is Mutton Street, flanked by rows of little antique shops that sell just about anything at bargain prices.
