Hunting for a Groom ( Excerpt from ‘Brides of Delhi’)

Welcome to Delhi, the capital of India, a teeming City of stunning contradictions.
Here, the sublime and the ludicrous cohabit peacefully.
Glossy high-rises and miserable shacks coexist next to one another.
Cars with latest gadgets and modest rickshaws run together, though at vastly different speeds.
A fast and modern train swishes by an ancient donkey’s struggle with an enormous load.
A cleanly dressed Babu, proud of his bearing, spits out Paan without a thought for the homeless asleep on the sidewalk.
In the swanky street, a naked Fakir wanders around promising Nirvana.
