The photograph is also taken in South Mumbai, near Fountain. However these particular book hawkers and their stalls are not there now. Probably evicted.
Here is a close-up of books which are stacked neatly on the pavement. Popular titles are what make business lucrative for the book sellers. Some of these books are brand new pirated versions of the originals. Shantaram is a popular book and a pirated edition can be bought easily. Paul Coelho is also quite popular.
