In Mumbai’s Chor Bazaar, a man waits in front of his shop full of junk waiting for customers. This kind of shop is getting rarer as meaning of recycling changes. Chor Bazaar is now squeezed geographically as furniture shops expand into it. The main customers seem to be set designers for numerous TV shows and movies; as a result, many of the neighbouring shops have changed character. This man is balanced on the breaking wave of history, and I suspect that he will lose his surfboard soon.
