    (E–pub) Delhi Adventures in a Megacity BY Sam Miller Eh I didn't finish it I'm pretty obsessive about all things India but I didn't care much for the author himself and he's the central figurestoryteller so it was hard to just appreciate the stories of the eccentricities and details of Delhi His continued use of flaneur annoyed the crap out of me It's probably a good book if he doesn't annoy

If Delhi ever needed a geometric metaphor it would have to be the circle From the different dynasties and political parties that rose and descended along its Ferris wheel of power to the ring roads that serve as the arteries for navigating the city Delhi s circularity is both ancient and modern In Delhi Adventures in a Megacity Sam Miller redefines this circle in an entirely refreshing way A modern day fl neur he sets out to explore Delhi in spirals and with no fixed agenda His resultant experiences range anywhere between the hilarious and the blood curdling Written in a voice that s at once empathetic and snarky the book is a delightful mix of travelogue memoir reportage and social commentary Miller s discoveries are uniue foreign not only to transient tourists but even to many old time residents His insider outsider worldview lends his vignettes a special lens

I really enjoyed this book It was already special to me since the author was the keynote speaker at my graduation in Delhi but on reading it I wish I had known about him before I had seen him speak At the time I didn t know much about him except that he had not been very positive about our school in his book so I knew a few people were uestioning why he spoke at our graduation but after reading the book I understand He really loves Delhi and not just the posh parts of Delhi or the history behind it but all of it This is very clear from the way he took the time to walk around the entire city in a spiral formation when walking in Delhi is usually not so easy and is a bit dangerous and his knee injury made it even difficult It is also clear from the way he describes the people and the scenery around him he sees humor all around him but unlike a lot of foreigners his humor isn t full of mocking He obviously cares deeply for the people of Delhi most especially the poor who have little voice and are often taken advantage of He also cares about Delhi s future as well as its past There was so much history in this book and it was really nice to revisit Delhi through the places in this book This book also tries to address the issues of modernity and globalization in a very open way The author doesn t think he has the answers to these problems or that we should just stop time now and not let Delhi move into the modern age but he also points out that if Delhi becomes ultra modern it might end up feeling just like every other city in the world and lose its character and personality People want shopping malls yet they take up space that once was uniue and might have been the site of a Mughal mosue I also like the way Miller was able to speak to the poor in this book and not just look at them and make his own faulty assumptions It is priceless to be able to communicate with someone so different from yourself I especially like the part where he sees the rag pickers at the garbage dump and at first has all these assumptions about how awful their lives are until he actually talks to some of them and learns that this is actually a pretty good job and the people who do it are normal people with children that even go to college and everything A really enjoyable book Even if you never go to Delhi it is still a great read
