In an alcove underneath signs for Dell computers, Sandisk storage media and placards advertising printer cartridge repair and refilling, half a dozen boys between 14 and 18 years old have set up shop.
They hold typewritten sheets in their hands, pages and pages long, listing the pirated software they have for sale. And they're not shy about it.

"Hello, software, software, Adobe, Microsoft Office, Windows 7, Autocad, any name software," a boy in a blue T-shirt shouts. "Microsoft, Mac, software, games. Hundred rupees [$2] any software."
Welcome to Nehru Place, India's largest market for software and computers - and one of the top 30 most notorious hubs of piracy in the world, according to the Office of the US Trade Representative.
According to the Association of Indian Software Companies, this filthy and chaotic cluster of office buildings - each one housing a warren of tiny shops - accounts for as much as half of the $2.5 billion worth of legal software sold in India every year.
But the real volume is in the fake stuff, where the sprawling hub is also responsible for almost 60 percent of the pirated market, including high-end software, operating systems and movies.
That's why a traders' association recently took matters into its own hands. "Our market gets a bad name because of piracy while not one shop owner is involved," said Mahinder Aggarwal, president of the All Delhi Computer Traders' Association (ADCTA). "Those hawkers down on the pavement, those 13-, 14-year-old kids, are the ones involved in piracy."
Earlier this month, members of the ADCTA broke out cellphones and video cameras to catch pirates on tape, posting the evidence onYouTube and providing detailed footage to police that allegedly depicts pirates hawking illegal software, harassing women and abusing drugs.
