City Notice – The Delhi Walla’s Photo of Arundhati Roy Appears on Her New Book of Essays!
An important landmark.
[Text and photos by Mayank Austen Soofi]
The Delhi Walla website will complete a decade in 2017. Since the beginning of my blogsite, I have been photographing a distinguished Delhi walla, writer Arundhati Roy (see the photos below).
The year 2016 turned out to be an important landmark in my life as a blogger and as a devotee of the author of The God of Small Things. The US-based Haymarket Books published Arundhati Roy’s The End of Imagination. This beautifully designed book “brings together five of Arundhati Roy’s acclaimed books of essays into one comprehensive volume for the first time and features a new introduction by the author.”
The book carries blurbs by well-know writers such as Alice Walker, Naomi Klein and Junot Diaz.
The author photograph appears on the book’s back flap. Not many readers will notice the small font but the said picture has been credited to Mayank Austen Soofi. That’s me, The Delhi Walla!
In the world of Arundhati Roy
How much I envy you Mayank.
Come on, Sheeba!
Very good! And who is that in the last picture? You or Ms. Roy?
Very droll, Naushirvan!
Jhabba baal … immortalized … congratulations bhai.
