A drought from the past, Old Delhi-New Delh: My Experiences, is the second novel of the author, a pharmaceutical chemist. It was written along with other scientific books, when he as a recluse spent more than a decade in a room at the top floor of a dilapidated building in Old Delhi, near Red Fort. Unusual things started happening in the room when the author drooled between breaks of his writing schedule. Beautiful Begums(queens) with their blinded Princes and violated Princesses started visiting him as ghosts tio tell their stories of torture. A hypnotist-cum-ghost-expert later told the author the genesis and spread of these events. This episode apart, the novel with its robust characters and events takes the reader at a fast speed to the last alphabet of the last word. About Author : A retired senior pharmaceutical chemist of the Drug Control Organization of Government of India, Pushan Kumar Dutta has studied the old, historical monuments from his early school days. With a literary bent of mind, he was fascinated by the events in the days of the later Mughals and wrote two books in Bengali that were highly commended by the reading public and Bengali newspapers. The present work is the revised and enlarged edition of one of the book translated in English. Amitava Mukherjee, who worked as editor of magazines, has authored three books on political subjects. Apart from working as a diplomatic correspondent, he has been a visiting professor in journalism. with his erudition and learning, he has restructured this book and inter-connected the events for easy understanding while translating the Bengali version into English.
