Discovering a travel writer

A few months ago a friend, Chandrahas Choudhury, introduced me to a fine writer I'd never heard of before called Ryszard Kapuscinski. The first book of his that I read was called The Shadow of the Sun, and that started me on a rewarding journey of discovering other books by him. So what did Chandrahas tell me about him that compelled to buy that first book? Read it for yourself here.

I've just boarded the Rajdhani Express to Mumbai, by the way, and will be on a train till tomorrow early morning. So no more blogging for today.
