Pile up and Perish - this is no 'Life of Pi"

My new book is ready.

A response to Tamil Nadu, and the life that I saw there on the streets during one week in March.

Life on the streets of Chennai with its vast Marina beach, Pondicherry and Mahabalipuram.

Pondicherry is where the zoo was, in the film "The Life of Pi".

I went to find it, and found a very sad, unloved park, with no hint of the lush pathways seen on the screen. Digital manipulation had created something that doesn't exist.

The images in my book are about what was really there, in Tamil Nadu, in March 2015.

£5 from all sales will be donated to Scottish Love in Action as a means to give something back. It supports the education of Indian children.
