Commercialisation has transformed Gandhi Bazaar, where makeshift shops selling puja items and banana leaves jostle with swanky supermarkets. Despite the globalised makeover, the bylanes retain a flavour of the past. D.V. Gundappa's house here may have been razed, but his favourite haunt, the 109-year-old Kala Mandir, remains intact.
