New Delhi Down the Decades takes the reader through the days when iconic personalities such as Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker were working on a unique style of architecture that makes New Delhi special.New Delhi, or rather Lutyens Delhi as it is now known, was still youngjust over ten years of agewhen Dhruva N. Chaudhuri came to the city with his parents and brothers. He had his first look at the capital city of India in June 1942 and has watched it grow in the last seven decades, from a quiet garden city into a giant metropolis.
