An interesting place in my hometown, Bangalore, is this decades old bookhouse called Blossoms. So when one speaks about Bangalore, there are a few things they will definitely mention – the weather, without a doubt, the culture and people, the food and Blossoms. Blossoms Book house is probably the most famous landmark in all of bangalore. There’s nothing inherently special about it, it’s just a bookhouse, but it has been there for so long that it’s just a part of Bangalore and rightly so. It’s on Church Street, a popular and busy segment of the city, and to get there, you can take public transport such as a BMTC bus or the metro. Blossoms houses an exhaustive range of books, old and new alike. People come here from all over the city to read, browse and buy books. The rustic ambiance creates an environment where people feel comfortable. Blossoms buys old books too, so often you’ll find second and third-hand books there, but it’s all part of its rustic old-timey charm. It’s not a modern looking place by any means. It’s an average-sized bookstore, filled with books all around from ceiling to floor and across the walls – and somehow, it has weaved its way into every Bangalorean’s heart. I think it is an intriguing place because it is so different from all that Bangalore is known for, but it still is at the very heart of the city. Everybody has a different connection to Blossoms book house, and each connection is special in its own way. How one tiny bookstore made such a big impact in this large metropolitan city will always amaze me.
