The most wonderful element of Khushwantsinghs writing is it cannotr be compered to any other writers writing and Delhi takes you for a ride down the lane but still keeps you very much to the present. once you start reading you are afraid it would end. faboulous piece of work to the last page. Dr.Hemant Bonde Patil --Dr.Hemant Bonde poatil Sep 2, 2011

this is a Must Buy for everyone who loves Delhi !! The city of Sultans and Mughals, poets and courtesans comes alive in the pages of Khushwant Singh's magnum opus. Ignore it at your own peril --Supradeep Mukherjee Feb 24, 2014

This Khushwant Singh book is truly a magnum opus...he has weaved almost eight centuries into 400-odd pages and is a complete entertainment, both in terms of general reading and for people who want to know about the city's past...hats off...!!! --Arnab Pal Oct 21, 2013
