      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description
    Find the past of Indias capital through Literary culture. We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring, will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time - Four Quartets, T. S. Eliot. The mega city that is todays Delhi is built upon thick layers of history. For a millennium, Delhi has been at the crossroads of trade, culture and politics. The stories of its buildings and great historical personalities have been told many times, but this book approaches the past of Indias capital through its literary culture. By focusing on writers and thinkers, we meet a colorful cast of characters only glancingly mentioned in political histories. Many Delhiites are surprised to learn that the language of their citys cultural heyday was Persian. Despite first being brought to India by invaders, it eventually became an authentically Indian language used in both administration and literature. Although it was cultivated by an elite, it was also a widely available language of aspiration and opportunity, like English today. It connected India to the wider world and the Indian Subcontinent, particularly Delhi, was once a place where talented poets and scholars from the whole Persian cultural world from Turkey to eastern China came to make their fortunes. Its traces remain everywhere but Persian is effectively a dead language in India today.

    About the Author

    Arthur Dudney was born in the United States but has been visiting in Delhi for much of his life. Over the years, he has become a Delhi walla at heart, if not by birth. He is delighted when being an Urdu-speaking foreigner with a love for Indian culture means being mistaken for a Kashmir, Pathan or Anglo - Indian. He has had the good fortune to be able to combine his academic career as a historian with writing for non-scholars about a city he loves. He received his doctorate from the department of Middle Eastern, South Asian and African Studies at Columbia University in October 2013 and is currently a Junior Research Fellow at Oxford University.
