Capital Note – The Delhi Walla Gets a Sponsor

The Delhi walla's pretension in writing makes me want to lodge a bullet in his balls - Blogger Nimpipi, the woodchuck chucks

A reader has paid for this blogsite's flickr account.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a young man in possession of a great many talents might be in want of some external support and encouragement.

It gives me a great deal of pleasure to bring this aspect of Mayank Austen Soofi's work to the attention of a public who I hope appreciates his views and insights of a city and its inhabitants, as I do.

Mayank's photography and prose are always illuminating. I have learned more about Delhi - socially, historically, and culturally - by viewing and reading Mayank's photographs and writings. His 'street photography' has a freshness that I have only encountered in the work of Raghubir Singh.

I hope he will continue to share his insight and knowledge with the rest of us for a very long time.
