Scoop-Wallah: Life on a Delhi Daily
A chance conversation with her greengrocer about the portrayal of India in the media inspired journalist Justine Hardy to leave London and spend a year working at the Indian Express in New Delhi. Her new life—with a quirky landlord who turns out to be a former Rajput prince—takes her all over India, from polo matches and the manicured lawns of Assam tea gardens to city slums in Delhi, stumbling across terrorist sentiments, exploring the HIV problem, and having an inspiring encounter with the Dalai Lama.
