Ankit Chadha, a passionate story-teller narrates the story about how it all started… his learning’s, new discoveries, his love to write, his love for Gandhi and Kabir, his experiments with a Dastan on mobile and his engagement with school children.
Through the ages, Purani Dilli, 'a city of legends and stories', has acquired a distinctive identity for its commercial and cultural activities. Its hallmark is a genteel lifestyle that has withstood the test of time and retained its unique Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb - the best of Islamic and Hindu etiquette. The peaceful coexistence of different faiths and cultures within its walls are a lesson in syncretic living. Delhi: The Emperor's City celebrates the rich palimpsest that is the Walled City through its well-researched text and magnificent visuals, and is replete with a deep nostalgia for its old-world charm.
