Title Review

New Delhi was born at two o’clock on 12 December 1911, as King George V proclaimed it to be India’s new capital at his grand Coronation Durbar. New Delhi: Making of a Capital pieces together the story of the eighth reincarnation of this historic city. With a bonanza of exclusive photographs showing the bloc-by-bloc construction of what are today the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Parliament House, and the Secretariat buildings, the book puts together fragments of history, recreating an era of struggle, disquiet, and passion in which this great urban centre was built. Also included here, for the first time, are century-old telegrams, maps, plans, drawings, the signed Agreement between the chief architects: Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker, and a lot more – besides newspaper reports, articles and editorials about the ‘extravagant city’. Malvika Singh is a reputed journalist, who has been associated with some of leading national publications. Rudrangshu Mukherjee, Oxford University’s D.Phil, is a renowned historian.
