tradition

There is a pretty old famous book store in Pune. The construction time of the building where this store resides, goes back to pre-independence time. The store still maitains the tradional look and feel. The place is really one of the best with a huge collection of books. People visit the place for books and not for any decorations. The entrance of the store is relatively small, like the entrance door of a house. The entrance also hosts a threshold, also called a doorsill. Many of the visitors are unaware of its existence and their toes often get hit on the threshold. Now, it is unusual for a shop to have such a threshold. However, at times the tradition takes over all other things.
