Walk by Mustansir Dalvi
“[The] year 2020 is Pedestrian Maharaja of our times and Mustansir Dalvi is its court chronicler. This collection erases the gap between souls and soles, and makes highfalutin hemistiches out of scatological interjections. It strengthens my belief that self-deprecating humour is important for healing.” ― Maitreyi Karnoor
