      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    Worth Reading

    Having grown up in Delhi, Bina's name was familiar to me. The language is crisp, it must have been written by a very talented ghost writer.

    Hats off to you Bina! I have gifted several copies of this book already!

It is these transitions that she maps very well in terms of spaces like Hauz Khas village. It is a candid piece of writing which brings forth her...
