HERITAGE WALK-CUM-BOOK READING SESSION WITH THE LIDDLE SISTERS (MADHULIKA LIDDLE AND SWAPNA LIDDLE)
A walk that ambled back some 300-years or so in exploring Muzaffar Jang's Delhi. The two-hour walk, conducted in association with SALT (Society for Promotion of Arts and Literature), combined book readings with an exploration of historic sites and precincts associated with Madhulika Liddle's fictional Mughal detective, Muzaffar Jang. Swapna Liddle (author of Delhi: 14 Historic Walks) led the walk through the 17th century city of Shahjahanabad, talking about its history and evolution with special emphasis on sites that figure in the Muzaffar Jang books, brought alive by readings from Crimson City, Madhulika's latest.
Peeling back the layers of a city’s past #Delhi6
इतिहास के झरोखों से झांकते हुए, ढहती दीवारों, चटकती मीनारों या रेत होते खंडहरों को टांपते हुए मुझे हमेशा महसूस हुआ है कि मैं यहीं की हूं।
A Heritage Photowalk In Old Delhi With Liddle Sisters
Taking a walk, organized by #SALT and FB’s #TCBG_trips & led by Liddle Sisters, along the famed lanes of Old Delhi was exalting and enriching experience where Swapna was narrating story wrapped in history and Madhulika complemented it with reading paragraphs from her book recreating the overwhelming charm of old Delhi.

When I was informed of this Old Delhi walk, that too by real historians and authors such as the Liddle Sisters, I decided to join immediately.

Old Delhi has always intrigued me and this heritage walk was really special in every sense. Look forward to more such walks in and around Delhi.
