Description
About the Author

Jerry Pinto lives in Mumbai as he has done for all the forty-something years of his life this means that he does not have a car since his city has the finest public transport system in the country. This also means his lungs are black inside because the air is polluted. He often visits other cities because he is a journalist and works with Meljol, an NGO that works for the rights of children who don’t have food, shelter, education and the like, but he rushes back home quickly and when he gets to Mumbai, takes a deep breath of its dirty air and sighs fatly. (He weighs more than 90 kilos.) He says, if you live in a city that has been covered by this book, come on, write a chapter of your own, and stick it in at the back. He has also written book called A Bear for Felicia (Puffin).

Rahul Srivastava is involved in urban issues and knowledge practices. He writes fiction for younger readers. He is the author of the novel Murder of Kaandoba Hill (Puffin) and several short stories.
