ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

: Rakhshanda Jalil writes on issues of literature, culture and heritage. She has published over fifteen books and was the co-editor of Third Frame, a journal devoted to literature, culture and society brought out by the Cambridge University Press. She has published six works of translations; the latest being Naked Voices & Other Stories by Saadat Hasan Manto; Panchlight and Other Stories by Hindi writer Phanishwarnath Renu. Jalil runs an organisation called Hindustani Awaz, devoted to the popularisation of Hindi-Urdu literature and culture.

ABOUT THE BOOK
: There is no denying that Delhi is unique. What sets it apart is the multitude of historic ruins that are a part of the city’s landscape. Neophyte New Delhi has been quick to discard most of them on the rubbish heap of history, choosing to validate a bare minimum with a name, an identity and a place of visibility. Where it was possible to make the law look the other way, many of these monuments were razed to the ground to make way for development. Regarded as no more than inconvenient piles of rock, many have been pulled down, built upon, built around. Invisible City: The Hidden Monuments of Delhi explores this other Delhi—the little-known, seldom-visited, largely unheard of Delhi, the Delhi that has been rendered almost invisible.
