Delhi Then:A city of empires and dynasties, Delhi through the ages has evoked nostalgia of its history written on the red sandstone walls. From Quila Rai Pithora to the palace on Raisina Hill, the changing face of Delhi is remarkably discernible in these photographs – a special collection that gives words to the spoken and unspoken history of this city.Delhi Now:A city of dreams and desires, Delhi’s urban landscape is incomplete without the stones of seven ancient cities, which give it a distinct meaning, a distinct outlook. This modern city on the move – the colours and digital vibrancy of the photographs capturing Delhi in all moods and moments – is as imposing as the grand old structures of yesteryears. A twin city of old-world charm and new extravagance, it has evolved through the ages and is looking forward to an era, which will be remembered down the ages.
