Forts, havelis, temples, mosques, streets, food, culture, history... It’s all there in Shahjahanabad: The Living City of Old Delhi, the final installment in popular historian Rana Safvi’s series on Delhi. Here, Rana talks about what went into writing this information-packed and very accessible book that combines the historic and the contemporary to give the reader a great then-and-now view of Old Delhi, a remarkable settlement that has, over the centuries, seen both grandeur and tragedy.
