Nandita Badami explores in an article entitled "Thinking Objectively," (in *The New Enquiry*) modes of looking in India via photos of Mumbai's chor bazaar. Its name means literally the "market of stolen goods" but it is only a rhetorical figure not a literal description of what is sold there. Particularly interesting is her description of the juxtaposition of goods from everday life in family homes and those from film sets: "Chor bazaar sells everything from used refrigerators and television sets to clocks, used table fans, old film posters, jazz records, gramophones, discarded computer speakers, out-of-date Nintendo players, keyboards, decorative curios, old cameras, video equipment from Mumbai’s enormous film industry, and even the odd antique piece of furniture salvaged from the homes of Parsi families fallen on hard times." Badami's use of the work of anthropologist Arjun Appaduri lets her reflect on the way the blurring of boundaries visible in these photographs operates well beyond the market in Indian society, which he has called a "panorama of piles" where "things meld into bodies." What do flea markets in Paris or London or Rome tell us about their metropolises? Is there good writing on European markets or their representations?
