Photo Essay – Reading in Public, Around Town
[Text and photos by Mayank Austen Soofi]
Some of the most beautiful sights that The Delhi Walla sees in Delhi are not of monuments or gardens but of people reading in public places.
I have seen a butcher reading a book in Turkman Gate, a rag-picker reading a book in Chawri Bazaar, a commuter reading a book in a bus shelter, a security guard reading a book outside an ATM, and a beggar reading a book in a Sufi shrine.
These lucky citizens have discovered the most creative route to escape from the city.
Shh, they’re reading
E-books are the future. Chances are, people staring intently at their smartphones and occasionally flicking the screen aren’t just slashing fruits with a ninjato.
What lovely pictures. I especially liked 4,5,6,13
It is heartening to the see the number of people reading books in the Delhi Metro. I love taking a couple of books with me on my daily commute, thus transforming it into a joyful experience!
wonderful pictures 🙂
