Description

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, irreverent magnum opus on the city of Delhi.

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 participated in the major historical forces that have shaped and endowed Delhi with its very special mystique.
