Author-photographer Ajay Jain of Delhi’s mega-popular Kunzum Travel Cafe picks two books that changed his life:


Paul Theroux’s The Great Railway Bazaar




and Bill Bryson’s Down Under


“Both had a life changing impact on me. Inspired by their tales, I re-engineered my life. Literally. From an engineer / MBA, I became a travel writer and photographer. And embarked on a mission to cover all of India to see all that is beautiful, meet its peoples, understand their societies and cultures, and enrich myself as a human being with these insights and knowledge. And the memories I capture in my books, photographs and in my journals will stay with me forever. Making me a more tolerant and broadminded person.”
