Just finished reading Delhi by heart. I am pre-partition Delhiite, left Delhi in august 1947, at the age of seven. “We will come again to visit”, said my parents,but it was never to be!. Never reconciled that will never go again. Reading this book has brought back memories of my childhood and so much I did know about the place I loved and cherished, yearned to visit again. It is an excellent biography of a city.
Thank you for making me so nostalgic and bringing back wonderful memories!
It is a wonderfully written book and definitely written “by heart”.
Thank you beta… God bless you!
Love and dua,
