In Conversation with Rare books.

Mr Govindaraju was sitting around a pile of books like he has been over the last 25 years in his Garage when we visited him a fortnight ago. He has been religiously collecting books and vintage advertisements for over 40 years. He founded 'Rare Books' because of his enthusiasm and dedication in passing on his collections to people.
