Shivajinagar Scrapyard

Just next to Russell Market in Shivajinagar is a surprising place. It’s a graveyard of sorts for the carcasses of the city’s battered cars and other vehicles.

This scrap yard is where they’re dismantled and dissected.

The different body parts are then sorted: axles here, mufflers there.

Rows of small stalls sell spare parts. This is where you go if you need a headlight, hubcap, or engine for your car.

The scrap-yard in Mumbai too is in an area known as Shivajinagar. Wonder what is it with this name !

Nice blog you have here.
