Delhi: Red Fort to Raisina traces the journey of Shahjahan’s new capital of the Mughal Empire; Shahjahanabad built on the banks of river Yamuna in 1638 to New Delhi the new capital of British-ruled India in 1911. From Red Fort to Jama Masjid and from Jahanara Bagh to Hayat Bakhsh Bagh, every palace, mosque, bazaar, and bagh in the Mughal city was planned to perfection. The new city too, designed in the early twentieth century, was a blend of Mughal architecture and modern aesthetics. This book celebrates the centenary with four essays on different aspects of Delhi’s history by JP Losty, Salman Khurshid, Ratish Nanda, and Malvika Singh. A lively portrait of the city and its culture and people, the book documents the transition of the old-world charm of Shahjahanabad to a modern city with a new seat of power built on the Raisina Hill.

JP Losty was formerly Curator-in-charge of the extensive Indian visual collections in the British Library in London. He has published books and papers on many aspects of the painting of India from the 12th to the 19th centuries. The paintings of late Mughal Delhi are central to his interests, and he has recently authored a book on Delhi topographical painting, titled' Delhi 360: Mazhar Ali Khan's View from the Lahore Gate' (Roli Books) and has also contributed to the catalogue of the forthcoming exhibition on Delhi at the Asia Society, New York. Salman Khurshid is an Indian politician belonging to the Indian National Congress, a lawyer, and a writer. He is presently the Cabinet Minister of the Ministry of Law and Justice and Ministry of Minority Affairs, Government of India. He has been deeply involved in writing and acting in plays since his student days in Delhi and Oxford. He is the author of the play 'Sons of Babur', which has been staged with Tom Alter in the lead role, at the Red Fort in Delhi. Ratish Nanda, Conservation Architect, is the Projects Director for the Aga Khan Trust for Culture in India for whom he was earlier responsible for the Humayun's Tomb Garden Conservation and Baghe Babur Restoration, Kabul, Afghanistan.
