It has been a delightful week for book lovers. The Delhi Metro became a treasure trove of cherished books by popular Indian authors. Not just that, the books are colour co-ordinated, according to different lines at the metro station! These books have beautiful violet, blue, yellow, and green covers. People can pick up a book, read it, and return it for someone else to enjoy.
