Deja View: My First Column

Once while working for the Hindustan Times' newly launched HT City... sometime when the 1990s were turning into the 2000s... I had this brilliant (at least I thought it was, then) idea that I should have a column where I imagined myself in the Delhi of the future, a place that had moved on from being an overgrown mofussil town to a sort of sizzling New Age Vatican. I wanted to call the column 'Deja View' but my Editor thought it too dense and convoluted and suggested 'Future Shockers'. I agreed, although reluctantly, and so was born my first very own newspaper space from where I could rev up my time machine and go visit the future. This here is the first of my Future Shockers and also the last of my artworks accompanying it :)
