‘Chandni Chowk makes for an absorbing read. It may have been subsumed under the great metropolis of the modern capital city, but it has held onto its charm. It continues to be one of the biggest trading hubs; its narrow lanes continue to provide interesting insights on its glorious past. There is something mysteriously attractive about the place; its history seemingly still thrives in its narrow streets. Swapna Liddle only adds historical flavour to the unending fascination for this old city.’ Book review of Chandni Chowk: The Mughal City of Old Delhi by Swapna Liddle.
