Friend of the tomb.
[Text and photos by Mayank Austen Soofi]
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. This is true only up to a point. There is a lazy dog, indeed, but no brown fox. Instead, there are many graves here and the lazy dog is slumped on one of them.
The Delhi Walla is in a small unmarked graveyard in South Delhi’s Mehrauli. The brown dog is sprawled on a stone tomb. He seems sad. He gets up and looks straight ahead. He turns around and stares at the tomb stone. He peers closer. He walks away lazily. The grave is finally left to itself.
Remembering a friend?
