Title Review

‘There is perhaps no other road (like Lodi Road) in Delhi, or even the whole world, which connects, over a distance of four kilometres, a unique heritage – gateways, mosques, tombs, gardens, and even a step well and a bridge,’ says the author. Included among these is also the Humayun’s tomb – a UNESCO World Heritage site. They were built during successive empires, spanning several centuries, in different architectural styles and with different building materials. Ravi Batra: a professional mechanical engineer and a gifted painter as well, here captures the essence of these historical monuments on Lodi Road, New Delhi – in engaging paintings and equally engaging narratives.

Ravi Batra: a professionally trained mechanical engineer, has, since 1992, been a Distinguished Fellow of the Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), New Delhi.
