If you go to any place in the state to rent a shop or an office, you have to pay money. But today we are going to talk about a shop that has not been rented for years. The shopkeeper is asked to raise only pigeons for rent. So a handful of one day’s rent is taken. This rent also has to be paid to the birds by the shop owner himself. That is, the shopkeeper has to pay the price.
The shop is located in Ahmedabad and its name is Raipur Bhajiya House. The story of this Raipur Bhajiya House building is different and it is also connected with the history of Ahmedabad. When the shop of Raipur Bhajiya House was rented out, the shopkeeper decided to put a handful of chana in the platform built on the rented shop. For years even today this Raipur Bhajiya House has been run for a handful of gram.
Speaking to media, Bhushan Bhatt, a former MLA from Khadiya, said, “I have seen since childhood that a person goes to the platform on the roof of the shop to pick birds.” Raipur Bhajiya House was started in 1933. The shop was started by Motilal Patel. They were just selling fritters at this place under a tree. His bhajiya then got a good response from the people and he decided to keep the shop and at that time he kept the bhajiya shop heavy for the rent of a handful of chana and since then Raipur bhajiya house was started
This bhajiya shop sells potatoes, onions and mix gota. This shop sells much less heavy fritters than other shops. Bhajiya is so cheap here that one can enjoy Bhajiya for Rs 50. Bhajiya is also a specialty of this shop. Sauce is not served with fritters. It can be tasted only by taking fritters in hand on paper.
