About the Event

Meet the former resident editor of Statesman, who had the privilege to cover Delhi for 30+ years. His knowledge about Delhi and its streets is amazing. He saw Delhi transforming from a Colonial city to the capital of World's largest democracy. On 21st February (Saturday), he will talk about his experiences and his new book, which his fans get to read in March.

Note: This is a fundraising event for Mr. Smith and his upcoming projects. While we keep our promise of having our Walks & Durbars free for all, we would request all his fans to come forward and contribute to the cause.

About the Speaker

Once known as a Casanova, Ronald Vivian Smith has been associated with the first newspaper for more than 30 years. Mr Smith lives in an MIG flat allotted to him under writer quota and types his columns on his late father’s Underwood typewriter. While modern-day reporters can’t function without search engines, Mr Smith does not depend even on books. Unlike other celebrated writers on Delhi, Mr Smith remains as invisible as the people and places he writes about. He is never seen at book launches or literary gatherings. Late Khushwant Singh once said, "Ronnie is like a faceless djinn to his readers, a kind of character that often appears in his own stories."

How to Reach

Safdarjung Tomb is located on the Intersection of Lodhi Road and Aurobindo Marg. It is easily reachable via public and private transport, including Metro.
