The party secrets.
[Text and photos by Mayank Austen Soofi]
Hello boys, there she is.
One evening The Delhi Walla spotted the famous 50 Dates girl at the launch of author Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan's new novel, Split, at Raasta in Hauz Khas Village. The celebrated girl used to be on a dating spree with Delhi men, and would share her deeds anonymously on her tell-all blog, 50 Dates in Delhi: My Experiments With Social Anthropology. A very few people knew her identity.
She is still a secret.
This situation will not continue any longer.
The 50 Dates girl is here in this gathering, which is unfolding to be quite a solemn book launch with karaoke music and full of other such baubles. As expected, the girl is being receptive to all the various ecstasies that such gatherings offer but, curiously, she refuses to look at the two very handsome men in the party, each seated alone. One has a gloomy beard; the other has a nice set of teeth.
Instead, finding the camera lens focused on her, the 50 Dates girl warns against being outed to the world.
But then why is she here?
In any case, it is not difficult to single out somebody like that even in a crowd of such accomplished, esteemed women. Look at her--so full of vanity and self-consequence, so frequently breaking into raptures. She clearly possesses a certain... something... in her air and manner of walking. Also notice the tone of her voice, her address and expressions. Oh yes, it is so easy to recognize her. All you have to do is to study the photographs below, and you will know who she is. Happy hunting.
PS: You ask me how do I know the 50 Dates girl by her face? Well, she dated me too.
