The Nine Cities Of Delhi

Delhi, city of ghosts and government, stretches back to the dawn of Indian civilisation.

Time and again it has been overrun (the Turks, the Moguls, the British...), time and again rebuilt, each new city designed to surpass the last.

Between them, the nine cities of Delhi tell the story of India.

Jatinder Verma takes a personal voyage around Delhi's former glories and confronts modern Delhi, the ninth city, rapidly forgetting its past and in danger of having no future.
