Book Description
New delhi was born at two o'clock on 12 december 1911, as king george V proclaimed it to be india's new capital at his grand coronation durbar. New delhi; making of a capital pieces together the story of the eighth reincarnation of this historic city. breaking new ground, this book showcases century old telegrams, maps, plans, drawings, letters, and scraps of paper; the agreement that the chief architects- edwin lutyens and herbert baker signed together; the sharp arguments the two had on key architectural issues; and editorials about the extravagant city, including vigorous debates in the house of lords have been featured here for the first time.
