I am unfortunately not in Delhi on the 19th April.

I wish your book a grand readership. That is important.

It is such a planning farce that the said site in the river bed is now being
'developed' as a road and it is said that soon the area shall have traffic
circulation clover leaves like the one at AIIMS crossing complete with
underpasses and what not. More fancy roads / flyovers, more cars and more
urban mayhem.

What about the justice if any vis a vis the uprooted?
