_______________________

• “A Suitable Boy” is a novel by Vikram Seth, published in 1993.
With 1349 pages (1488 pages softcover) and 591,552 words, the book is the longest novel in English ever written in a single volume.

Vikram Seth’s novel is, at its core, a love story: Lata and her mother, Mrs. Rupa Mehra, are both trying to find — through love or through exacting maternal appraisal — a suitable boy for Lata to marry.
Set in the early 1950s, in an India newly independent and struggling through a time of crisis, A Suitable Boy takes us into the richly imagined world of four large extended families and spins a compulsively readable tale of their lives and loves.
A sweeping panoramic portrait of a complex, multiethnic society in flux, “A Suitable Boy” remains the story of ordinary people caught up in a web of love and ambition, humor and sadness, prejudice and reconciliation, the most delicate social etiquette and the most appalling violence.

• Vikram Seth is an Indian novelist, poet and Human Rights activist.
He has written several novel and poetry books.
He has received several awards including Padma Shri, Pravasi Bharatiya Samman, WH Smith Literary Award and Crossword Book Award.

_______________________

Having one of my pictures shot in Varanasi (Benaras) used for the cover of “A Suitable Boy” means a lot to me as this is the novel that Warris Vianni, my friend from London, told me to read when I first came to India a decade ago.
It took me all that time to really understand the meaning of these pages and in a way to “become Indian”…
This is why this book is very special to me.
Somehow this picture on the cover of Vikram Seth’s novel is ending a chapter of my life and opening a new one…
Maybe this is the time for maturity after learning and making so many things mine from what I felt, saw and heard along my endless journey in the galis of the Eternal city…

Special thanks to photographer Dinesh Khanna for introducing my work to the publisher of this book at Aleph Book Company.
