In an extraordinary portrayal of one of the world's fastest growing cities, Sam Miller sets out to discover the real Delhi.
Following a spiral course through the city, he visits its less celebrated destinations; the unexpected, the ignored and the eccentric.
Through his encounters with Delhi's people - from a professor of astrophysics to a crematorium attendant, from ragpickers to members of the Police Brass Band - Miller creates a richly entertaining portrait of what this megacity means to its residents.
The modern Delhi he depicts, in all its humour and humanity, is one whose future concerns us all.
