Description du livre Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2007. Paperback. État : New. First Edition. Agra has more than mere mention in the Hindu scriptures. And the city’s position of strategic importance astride important trade routes historically attracted empire-builders ranging from the Lodhis and the Mughals to the British. Now, says Royina Grewal, Agra has fallen prey to a lassitude that has caused large swathes of the once magnificent capital of emperors Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan to succumb to decay and haphazard development. Delving into myth and history, drawing deep conclusions from her lengthy conversations with varied citizens of multi-cultural Agra, Grewal weaves grand strands from the past with the humbler textures of present-day Agra to explain why the home of the world’s best-known monument has been allowed to disintegrate, and why the once mighty Yamuna is merely a stream of sludge. But there is hope, says Grewal. Drawing inspiration from the many enlightened individuals she met on her peregrinations in and around Agra, she points to ways in which the city can be saved. In the Shadow of the Taj may be a map of the city’s history, but it can also be a drawing board that offers insights for a sustainable future. Printed Pages: 280. Size: 14 x 22 Cm.

Description du livre Rupa, 2014. Soft cover. État : New. Etat de la jaquette : New. 1st Edition. The Taj Mahal is synonymous with Agra. But, as Royina Grewal discovers in her wanderings, there is much more to the city. Its strategic location on important trade routes attracted empire-builders from the Lodhis to the Mughals and the British, each of whom left their mark. Now, however, Agra has fallen prey to apathy and neglect. Large parts of the city have succumbed to decay and haphazard development, and the Yamuna River has become a stream of sludge. Only the spirit and enterprise of the everyday inhabitants of the once-glorious city sustain it. Juxtaposing the past with the present, delving into myth and history, and drawing upon her interactions with the city’s diverse population, Grewal takes the reader on a fascinating journey through Agra, exploring its lanes and by-lanes, and its attractions other than the Taj, even as she investigates the significance of the monument in the lives of the locals. And as she helps us understand the reasons for Agra’s spectacular decline, she also shows us signs of hope, looking at ways in which the city can be restored to some of its former glory. This revised edition of In the Shadow of the Taj is not just an ode to the city’s past, but also offers deep and often surprising insights into its present, and its future.
