Bahrisons is one of the oldest bookstores in independent India and the first in Khan Market. Established by the late Balraj Bahri (d.2016) in the year 1953, Bahrisons are considered by many as pioneers of the literary and reading culture of Delhi. In almost the 7 decades of its existence, Bahrisons has grown to become a well-known name in the publishing industry in India and abroad.

The legendary bookstore now owns the Tara-India Research Press, and Red Ink, one of India’s foremost literary agencies. What’s unique about Bahrisons is that it is still run by the family. And the family has kept the tradition alive – it still treats its customer with genuine kindness.

One of the qualities that made Balraj Bahri so popular among his customers was his courtesy and kindness. Folklore goes that Bahri was so willing to fulfil all his customers’ demand, that he would sit down with a notepad, note down whatever they wanted, and brought it for them! This customer-centric approach earned him loyalists who’ve stuck with the bookshop for decades.

Hope For the Post Coronavirus Era

In the post COVID19 era, the future of physical bookstores, already an ailing segment, was in question. However, Bahrison’s new store gives hope that things might get better eventually. Catering to the new age demands, Bahrisons now offer online purchases, delivering books across India and abroad. They brought books post-independence, and now they bring books post-pandemic! The old giant’s fresh stride will hopefully provide a boost to its younger counterparts, and people can soon get back to reading rather than distancing. Too much of home delivery, isn’t it?

(UPDATE: We were informed that the new shop at Ambience Mall is Bahrisons’ 3rd store out of Khan Market. Previously, it was mistakenly reported that it was their first. Therefore, we have acknowledged the mistake, and updated the article accordingly.)
