• Ronald Vivian Smith is an alumnus of St. John’s College, Agra and began writing as a teenager in 1954. He has authored many books, including four on Delhi, a romantic novel, Jasmine Nights & The Taj, three volumes of poetry, a collection of ghost yarns and a profile of the eighteenth-century Smith family he is descended from. As a septuagenarian he does not spend time on an easy-chair but in surveying out-of-the-way places for unusual stories that form the grist for weekly newspaper columns, ‘Quaint Corner’ and ‘Down Memory Lane’. This publication of his completes the proverbial baker’s dozen.
