Delhi : adventures in a megacity

Sam Miller
"Sam Miller sets out to discover the real Delhi, a city he describes as being 'India's dreamtown - and its purgatory'. He treads the city streets, making his way through Delhi and its suburbs, visiting its less celebrated destinations. Miller's quest is the here and now, the unexpected, the ignored and the eccentric. All the obvious ports of call - the ancient monuments, the imperial buildings and the celebrities of modern Delhi - make only passing appearances. Through his encounters with Delhi's people - from a professor of astrophysics to a crematorium attendant, from ragpickers to members of the Police Brass Band - Miller creates a richly entertaining portrait of what Delhi means to its residents, and of what kind of city it is becoming."--Global Books in Print
