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 not been covered by this book, come on, write a chapter of your own, and stick it in at the back.' He has also written a 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 on Kaandoha Hill (Puffin) and several short stories. He co-authors a blog and can be contacted on rahulgiairoors.org, He is based in Goa.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
