CELEBRATE LIFE

Let me share a wonderful ocean of calm and fun in the bustling horseshoe shaped Connaught Place ( now renamed as  Rajeev Chowk).

I share locations and destinations to CELEBRATE LIFE. Am not paid to write or blog  ( sounds crude) .

The Oxford Bookstore is located on the first floor of Pratap Building, N Block, Connaught Place, New Delhi.

An extremely nostalgic entry as it takes me back to when I was 12 years old. How things change ?

An innovative bookstore , it exudes warmth and happiness. A joyful place to soothe your feathers, read and have a cuppa tea.( Cha bar shares space with the bookstore)  Do check out my blog http://www.enchantedforests.wordpress.com to read about it as well.

A large lifesize Ganesha blesses you at the entrance . The birthday Of Ganesha is celebrated with great festivity across the country in the month of September.

A blue archway permits you to  enter the Hall of the Wishing Tree.

The Hall of the Wishing Tree has an excellent selection of coffee table books on India. Have a look. I have a favourite too.

Having been to the bookstore on several trips, I find the selection and display very Impressive.

I loved the way books are displayed on carts. The creativity in the layout of the Bookstore is amazing . Was impressed with the importance given to Vernacular Languages ( most boostores pretend such languages do ot exist) .

The bookstore makes for very interesting shopping too as they have many articles such as Umbrellas . Do have a look.

A special area for children to play in and delightful Story telling sessions over the weekends makes this a very special and HAPPY BOOKSTORE.

Workshops
                                                                       Workshops

So enjoy yourself at this FUN BOOKSTORE. Take  the kids too, lots for them.

There are no QUIET PLEASE signs or stern DO NOT TOUCH glares. This place is HAPPINESS.

This picture is the cover  of a VERY  large book. Can you spot a corner of this book  in any of the pictures above ?
