Description
About the Book
Years ago, an advertising campaign on Delhi had 'Dilli Hai Dil Walon Ki' running as its slogan, meaning that Delhi belongs to the people who are large-hearted! This book is about a historical city and its people, not exactly like a tourist guide, but more with the aim that someone would read it at leisure, half-lying down on the bed, or putting one's feet up on the chair. It is a leisurely written account, introducing the reader to the rulers and their monuments, and yet talking about Delhi Daredevils, Delhi's own cricket team in the popular IPL series. It tells you where to go and have robust Punjabi khaana, and where to buy Indian handicrafts from. The overlaps in the chapters were a conscious decision, as we wanted the reader to imbibe rather than read it like an information booklet. The book is anything but an academic exercise, and yet gives all the information to a traveller in the city, who needs to enjoy and experience the city's best.

We just hope that after reading the book, profusely illustrated with photographs, the reader will become like a real 'Dilliwallah", full of joie de vivre, willing to mingle with the crowd and dance to the tune of the wedding band which accompanies the groom! A ho!

About the Author
Sujit Sanyal has been a Senior Advertising professional for over three decades, having worked in different advertising agencies in Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi, till he founded one himself called 'Imagine!' in 1996. Sujit believes in the lyrics of 'Imagine', as for him, it is the anthem for dreamers. He has since retired, from what he calls "first-class advertising", and is into doing what he always wanted to do: Talk and Write!

He claims to be a part of the 'Woodstock Generation', dabbles in the films and writings of Satyajit Ray, presents audio-visual shows on the music of Salil Choudhuri, collects Ravi Shankar's orchestral compositions, and at the same time, claims to be the largest collector of 'Vangelis' in India.

He has been writing since his school days; his first articles being published in 'The Junior Statesman' in 1969. He has functioned as the Editor of Admissive, the journal of Advertising Club, Kolkata, of which he was the General Secretary from 1987 to 1991. He has reviewed restaurants and food festivals for 'The Economic Times', Kolkata, for one year and then "ran out of eateries".

Currently, he writes a weekly column for 'Delhi Diary', Delhi's oldest city magazine, teaches in B schools, gives talk shows and presentations on "whatever is on your menu", and gives free advice to anyone who wants to join advertising. He is a recipient of the 'Rotary International Presidential Citation' and has been the Past President of the 'Rotary Club of Delhi', Panchshila Park.

A hardcore Kolkatan, Sujit is very proud of his middle-class Bengali intelligentsia background. An armchair Marxist, he loves his shukto and charchari, and has been living in Delhi since 1994. He is enamored by the city and its legacy, loves its people whose language he does not understand, but enjoys when they get into an abusive spat.

This is his first book, and soon, his memoirs on the advertising scene in the 70s and 80s will hit the stands. Sujit lives in Gurgaon with his wife Shila, son Subhojit (also an author) and three dachshunds, Husky, Julie and Sprite.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
