NEW DELHI: Veteran author, historian and the chronicler of Delhi, R.V. Smith, passed away Thursday morning in the national capital.

"Those who love Delhi's history must have read R.V. Smith at some point of time. No one knew Delhi like him. He is known as the 'True Chronicler of Delhi'," said Rooprai.
