Laxman Rao is one of the most well-known tea sellers in Delhi. Apart from from making a mean cup of chai, he also happens to be a prolific author.

Rao, who initially moved to Delhi with the dream of being a writer, has now sold tea for 20 years. After being rejected by a publisher, he decided to start publishing books himself.


Speaking to BBC, he said "Authors pull different stunts to market their books, make movies and TV serials out of them. I am a simple man. I get all my mail at this footpath address."
