A la recherche du temps perdu.
[By Mayank Austen Soofi]
The Delhi Walla regrets to inform that the 29th meeting of The Delhi Proustians, a club for Delhiwallas that discusses French novelist Marcel Proust, could not take place as scheduled. While on my way to the venue, an anonymous Proustian in the metro train stole my leather-bound Moleskine writing pad along with my copy of Marcel’s In Search of Lost Time.
Somewhere in his vast novel, Proust says that after a thief commits the crime, he is convinced that a certain interval of time, capable of being indefinitely prolonged, will be allowed before he is caught. I wish my thief is never caught.
The 29th meeting of The Delhi Proustians takes place on 8th October 2012.
