You are invited to a Saturday afternoon activity with 85 Broads coordinated by Kiran Agarwal (contact email firstname.lastname@example.org, cell 98195 81830).
Chor Bazaar, located near Bhendi Bazaar in South Mumbai, is one of the largest flea markets in India. The word Chor means “thief” in Hindi-Urdu. 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 Thieves’ Market where tourists and locals rummage for Ming vases and Muranos at throwaway prices. The main avenue is Mutton Street, flanked by rows of little antique shops that sell just about anything at bargain prices, including colonial-era lamps, Art Deco clocks and trinkets of every kind.
This is basically an “organized” flea market, where one has to rummage through junk and hopefully find treasures. We will meet at 4pm at a central location to be communicated by Kiran to attendees, and walk a short distance to Chor Bazaar and spend about two to two and a half hours exploring this interesting and not-often visited by locals sort of place and see what treasures we can find. Wear comfortable walking shoes and a hat if the sun bothers you.
RSVP to 85broadsmumbai@gmail with the subject line: CHOR BAZAAR – COUNT ME IN. Kiran will get back to you with the meeting point arrangements.
