The May-June 2013 issue of Biblio: A Review of Books, India’s most prestigious literary journal, showcases Nobody Can Love You More: Life in Delhi’s Red Light District, a book by The Delhi Walla, on its front page. The cover picture is taken from inside the book.
The journal has excerpted the book’s first chapter, which is titled I Had Come Too Far. To read it, you may buy Biblio, or you may get a copy of the book.
Here is the first paragraph of the first chapter of Nobody Can Love You More:
Take Sushma. No single cataclysmic event changed the progression of her life. One day led to another. The years rolled by. Old acquaintances were left behind, new friends made. Youth ended and middle age began. She put on weight. Disappointments came, so did a few delights. Sushma is not extraordinary. She shivers in winter and catches fevers during the change of seasons. She buys vegetables in the evening and smokes 502 Pataka Beedi while cooking. She makes love and makes money.
