The Red Cat and Other Stories


Critically acclaimed and much loved by readers, The Red Cat and Other Stories is Uttamchandani’s debut photobook on his home city, Bombay, through the lens of a fable that his mother had narrated to him and his sisters. It is often said that Bombay is “a city that doesn’t sleep” and also “the city of dreams”. The book explores this dichotomy in India’s urbs primus where a single day can oddly feel as long as a year.

Equal parts travelogue and journalism, the book chronicles the ironies of life in a booming megacity and is a tribute to the magic in the mundane.
