If you were delighted by recent videos of Harry Potter star Emma Watson leaving free feminist books on the New York City Subway and the London Underground, there’s now a similar project underway closer home.
A Delhi couple is trying to share their love of reading with their fellow metro riders by leaving books in metro trains and metro stations. Called ‘Books on the Delhi Metro,’ the non-profit project was started a month ago by Shruti Sharma, a writer, and Tarun Chauhan, a civil engineer.
After the couple drop off a book marked with a ‘Books on the Delhi Metro’ sticker on the Delhi Metro, they immediately post clues about its location on their Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts. Anyone who picks up the book is encouraged to post about their discovery using the hashtag #booksonthedelhimetro, read the book and eventually return it to the Delhi Metro for someone else to read.
Sharma was inspired to start the project after watching a video of Watson dropping books on the New York City Subway earlier this year.
