(The back story: This photo is one of many taken by Dave Prager or his wife, Jenny, when they lived in Delhi. Dave’s book, Delirious Delhi, was published by Arcade Publishing with 16 pages of pictures — which, according to some, was not enough. So this website will publish a new one every day or two.
