Remembering Baig sahib: The man at Midland Books who understood what it means to be a book lover

My mother began dropping into Midland Books regularly when its doors opened in Aurobindo Market for the first time in 1985. Mirza Yaseen Baig was a warm, kindly man who adored books and knew, instinctively, the joy of browsing. Baig sahib didn’t mind if you walked out without buying a book.
