Delhi: A City of Museums is a beautifully designed guide and reference book for tourists and art, history and culture enthusiasts. Delhi showcases the country's absorbing geographical, political, social and art history in the range of fascinating museums found within its limits, and just outside. The author has compiled in this volume a bird's eye view of ten important museums in the city. Each chapter is a walk through the history of the exhibits of each museum, and is lavishly illustrated by a set of striking photographs. The narration reflects the painstaking research and infectious enthusiasm of the author, as well as an abiding interest closing the gap between the wealth of information that museums provide and our own lives. Satyen Mohapatra, a special correspondent with the Hindustan Times, has has over twenty-five years' experience in reporting on a variety of subjects, including science and technology, agriculture, health, education, culture, environment, consumer affairs, politics, crime, and women and children. He lives and works in Delhi.
