    Great post Rajesh!! Nice Pics.. Its very colorful and Koooool Buddy…… 1 more thing abt city market is there are Dedicated Roads for each Product. For Dry Fruits there are Many shops in Particular Road. For Printing Related one particular area. There is many pete’s like chickpet, Balepet, mamulpet… all around 22 Pets in that area. each 1 is dedicated to Particular Business. There is Some History Revolving around this Place. Unable to Recollect….

    Excellent pictures,
    Don’t you think K R Market is a great example of India’s tolerance?

  12. Rajesh (unregistered) on May 16th, 2007 @ 10:52 am

    Thanks Naren, JOGI style!! got to go hunting for it!!

    Thanks Deepa.

    Birju, did not understand your question? :(

    @ Rajesh
    Sorry to have made my question very close ended.
    When I thought about Tolerance,I was thinking about various activities happening on the roads of KR market and the surrounding areas especially as Naren points out the chickpet, al
    I find it facinating to see an eclectic mix of things like somebody washing their car/scooter,some selling flowers,somebody drilling some electrical stuff,vehicles going to and fro betweeen businesses,people selling a range of medical/engineering/science used books on the streets,venders shouting at the top of their voice to sell their product/produce,cows and dogs wandering at their free will….the list can go on as you would imagine………but all this happens in a strangly chaotic manner yet there is an order in the chaos!I thought this was very tolerant and a leveller.
    Not sure what you had in mind?
