Once There Was a City Named Dilli is a portrait of Intizar Husain’s beloved Delhi. Presented as a series of richly textured tableaus, the book reflects the pasts and presents of the city which has been built and destroyed several times. Brimming with sights, sounds, fragrances and flavours, it is the tale itself that becomes delectable, without using history as an ideological tool to stake a claim on the present of the city. A popular recital that highlights the forgotten nuances of the story, Once There Was a City Named Dilli is a celebration of its queer characters and curious turn of events. The book privileges the experiences of the citizens of this important seat of power serenaded or ravaged by powerful kings and chieftains.
