Book on the Delhi Mughals launched

he Mughal City of Old Delhi — a book by Swapna Liddle, covering the trajectory (पथ मार्ग) of Delhi as a city since its establishment as the Mughal capital till India’s independence — was launched on Thursday evening at the Annexe(उपभवन) Court of the India International Centre. “Starting from the mid 16th century and extending to the mid 20th century, I have tried to put 300 years of Delhi’s history in this book. The book tells the story of how the city came to be established under Shahjahan and describes its grandeur (भव्यता) as the Capital of an empire at its peak(शिखर). It also focuses on the important role the city has played in shaping the language and culture of north India,” Ms. Liddle said. The book launch was followed by a conversation(वार्तालाप) between Swapna Liddle, William Dalrymple and Gurcharan Das.
