Strand Book Stall’s T.N Shanbhag is no more

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Happened to read that Mr. T.N Shanbhag of the Strand Book Stall passed away.

For a moment, it seemed difficult to comprehend he was no more, and I recall meeting him over a decade ago, when I was staying in Mumbai. I was always on the look out for book stores and especially those where I didn’t have someone always hovering around me while I browsed around, asking what I wanted to buy. No doubt such people try to be helpful, but once in a book store, I prefer being left alone to explore all there is on offer ­čÖé

The Strand Book Stall in Mumbai is a treasure trove and I used to frequent the place a lot, quite often just in the hope of finding a book I’d long wanted to own or even just to browse around. Mr. Shanbhag of course was always helpful and would even suggest books or authors similar to one’s interest.
