Late Ronald Vivian Smith, journalist, novelist, poet, occultist and historical researcher since 1954, carried on the legacy of his father, Thomas Smith. As a chronicler of the Delhi, Agra, Jaipur Golden Triangle, he had left few stones unturned to discover quaint tales. The present collection is a sample of his quest for things seen by many but comprehended by few in a mundane age. Khushwant Singh once told him that he would never go stale. The old-timer's prediction may well be true.
