    I return to Delhi as I return to my mistress Bhagmati when I have had my fill of whoring in foreign lands-' Thus begins Khushwant Singh's vast, erotic, irrelevant magnum opus on the city of Delhi. The principal narrator of the saga, which extends over six hundred years, is a bawdy, ageing reprobate who loves Delhi as much as he does the hijda whore Bhagmati"half man, half woman with sexual inventiveness and energy of both the sexes. Travelling through time, space and history to -discover' his beloved city, the narrator meets a myriad of people"poets and princes, saints and sultans, temptresses and traitors, emperors and eunuchs"who have shaped and endowed Delhi with its very special mystique- And as we accompany the narrator on his epic journey we find the city of emperors transformed and immortalized in our minds for ever.

    Very Good

    There is not a single e-commerce website in India right now that can equate flipkart's proficiency. All stars for you, haven't really read the book till now.

    I did read a few chapters from a borrowed copy. And I loved it. This book... it's a masterpiece in the treasury of Indian writers.

    One of the best

    “I asked my soul: What is Delhi? She replied: The world is the body and Delhi its life. Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib”

    “Delhi” by Khushwant singh was the first book that I read by the dirty old man of Indian literature. The book is a fictional account of the exquisite and historic city of Delhi through his eyes. He compares Delhi to his mistress the uncouth foul-mouthed, pockmarked Hijra ‘Bhagmati’ who is dirty like Delhi, but is what he cannot get enough off. The author covers various chapter...

    The past comes to life

    The author explores the complete history of the city of delhi in this novel, apparently it may seem a bit too erotic, but when observed closely it can be seen that it's just the recollections of an old man, punctuated by bits of daydreaming and wandering into the past. The last few chapters capture the violent scenes that took place in delhi after independence. It makes your blood boil and you can't decide who's right or who's wrong. Ultimately you come to accept that no one particular person...

    Delhi! The wonderful work of litreature.

    The most wonderful element of Khushwantsinghs writing is it cannotr be compered to any other writers writing and Delhi takes you for a ride down the lane but still keeps you very much to the present. once you start reading you are afraid it would end. faboulous piece of work to the last page.
