The Present in Delhi's Pasts

Five Essays


This is the much awaited, revised and enlarged, edition of a book acclaimed for its innovative approach as well as evocative prose.The essays in this volume are about old monuments and villages in New Delhi. The author investigates both, the medieval history of these sites and changes that have occured in these areas in more recent times. Relying upon Persian documentation and field-work, the author narrates the histories of these sites over the last millennium. It is a history of how, ever so gradually, the present has erased and rewritten the past of New Delhi.
