One of the first things we saw was a dead body fished out from my dear Sabarmati (or whatever survives of it) on the banks of Sunday Market, not that it deter the mood of the market! We took some pictures (I decided against publishing the disturbing images here) and then decided to be gulped down by the market itself, that's how the experience is when you visit Ahmedabad's Sunday Market.

|Bidi! Something to try out...|
Located on the river front towards the end of Ellis Bridge, its a treat for any Amdavadi, especially if you are looking for some great snapshots or making cheap purchases. The market starts early in the morn and goes on till at least late afternoon. If you have an eye, you can possibly find anything here.
|Ah! My favorite!|
|Old age catching on, but she was high on spirits...|
|A popular drink to kill the heat; no, I didn't try it out|
|A lone pandit...|
This post isn't exactly about the market, though it formed the backdrop of all these images. Its about the people who come here, either to sell, purchase or even to just see and observe. I have purchased everything from this place, including LP records which don't even play and mournfully just hang on my walls. But its a hot hot hot place, the punishing Ahmedabad sun will extract every bit of fluid in your body even in October!
|You get everything here, even a gramophone on a good bargain price!|
|The woman even danced for me :)|
|Many birds are sold here, somehow pigeons are a favorite, a man checking a pigeon before purchase|
For those who do not know, Sridarshini is a popular (at least with all current and ex NIDians, and all South Indians in Ahmedabad) South Indian food joint on the new city edge of the iconic Ellis Bridge. The food is good, cheap and todally value for money :) I strongly recommend set dosas followed by super strong filter coffee on any Sunday morning!
