Memories of Delhi

Memories of Delhi – request for information

22 Jun | News,

We have received the following request for memories of Delhi from  Lalita Phadkar and hope some of our members and social media followers are able to help her.

I am currently doing research for a book commissioned by Bloomsbury. Its working title is: “ Delhi, a century of stories ( 1900-2000)”.  The effort is to capture the changing character of Delhi in this period through anecdotal history. I need to tap into especially the pre-1947 era through the memories, journals/ photographs/memorabilia of British, European and Anglo-Indian people who lived through this period.

If anyone reading this would like to share memories (first-hand, or received from family-elders) or knows someone who would like to do this , in India or anywhere in the world, please please PLEASE do get in touch. My name is Lalita Phadkar; my email id is [email protected]; my mobile number is +91 981140022. I hope you who are reading this feel as I do- that this is a slice of cultural history which needs to be preserved.

I am very grateful to FIBIS for allowing me to put this request in their news feed.
