Christine Benjamin


'The book on Delhi' is written by Christine Benjamin. A young woman born on the 290 square mile coastally influenced island in the Caribbean called Dominica. Through out her life, She travelled to other islands within the Caribbean, then to several states in America. Life took her to Europe and Asia but her most shocking trip was to India. It is hereby that she writes about the brutality of life in India on ones own, without an Indian Ancestry.

This guide book is an important measure for people who are travelling to Asia or are curious about India. It is a raw media sabotage of the filtered information withheld from internet users searching for truths concealed through what Indian google obscures. Realizing that it was too late to correct her mistake by travelling to India, she decided to make the best of this destination. She enrolled at the Mahatma Gandhi University and studied Mathematics and Social Science. There are countless of schools which offer affiliated courses, so enrolling in a mass communication course and securing a diploma in journalism became tangible.

The cost for decent living in Delhi is quite high for a third world country, this is why Miss. Benjamin was influenced into finding employment.

"I got employed at the property observer Real Estate and Magazine Company at DLF towers in Jasola, Delhi. There I realized that the structural class system is not only within the Indian Society, but extends to the Workplace as well".

But she also became aware that it was time to get out of India when she got evicted from her apartment because her visa had expired.

"There is something called police verification, where the police scrutinizes your travel documents, and an expired visa normally lands a person in prison. Not the fancy prisons like in America or Europe , but the kind of prison that is more of a concentration camp than a facility. I had to leave."

In her book, she describes her illegal border Crossing into the very welcoming Nepal.

"I had to get back home to the Caribbean. I was tired. Getting back home but avoiding Delhi I went through Qatar, then France, to Guadeloupe, then a ferry to Dominica."

My passion changes as the seasons which causes me to currently work on three other books.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first set of stories I ever read were of Enid Blyton. He showed me the meaning of 'hooked on a book.' He made me love reading.
How do you approach cover design?
I don't approach Cover Design. Hahhahaaa, we should all allocate the appropriate skills to those who are gifted with them. My gift is writing, I understand and appreciate what I am meant to do. The cover designer must eat too. (smile)
