Life in the Metro.
[Text and photos by Mayank Austen Soofi]
No place like home, New York, New York.
The Delhi Walla saw this man on the Delhi Metro Blue Line, somewhere between the Rajiv Chowk and Dwarka Sector 21 stations. He clearly knew his daily six from the Grand Central. Just look at him–his system had got the beat in full function, denim shorts et al. He wore a NYC baseball cap and his Slim Shady Detroit tee shirt showed rapper Eminem.
He had tattooed knees and arms. His ears had hip hop; his eyes had the rain-wet windows; his heart had the five boroughs.
Karol Bagh came. Subhash Nagar came. Fulton Street came and the man got off.
Boom bye bye, mah Brooklyn boy.
