Shahar: A Theory of the Indian City

Ashish Xanathis Nangia (Author)

This book looks at different Indian cities to see what makes them similar and unique at the same time. Written against the backdrop of 20th century modernist and post-modernist movement, it argues that a non-Western approach is best suited to understand the complex organism that is the city in India.

Explaining the theories of the city, both postmodernism and after, it goes deep into the contemporary urbanisms of Chandigarh, Lucknow, Hampi, Goa and Benares, with special focus on their sustainability, traditionalism, psychedelic love, ghats and ghouls.
