1 Kalyani Menon-Sen and Gautam Bhan
Swept Off the Map: Surviving Eviction and Resettlement in Delhi
Yoda Press; New Delhi, India; 819061861X / 9788190618618; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
In January 2004, the Tourism Ministry of the Government of India announced its plan of developing a 100-acre strip of land on the banks of the Yamuna into a riverside promenade, to be marketed as a major tourist attraction in the lead-up to the Commonwealth Games. In February and April 2004, homes and community buildings in this area were razed to the ground leaving thousands of people homeless. This book, the outcome of a two year long research study, tracks the lives of nearly 3,000 of these evicted households who were relocated to Bawana on the margins of the city, and describes their struggle to live with dignity in the face of assaults on their identities, homes, rights and lives. The book presents data and evidence on a wide range of social and economic indicators to show how eviction and resettlement have eroded the rights and undermined the livelihoods of resettled families, leaving them in a state of permanent poverty from which escape seems unlikely if not impossible. A critical exposé of the human consequences of the push to make Delhi a ’world-class city’, Swept off the Map raises uncomfortable questions about present trends in urban development and makes a powerful case for bringing the voices and views of all citizens – not just the elite (or aspiring-to-be-elite) classes – into debates on the future of the city.

2 Gautam Sen
The Maharajas and Their Magnificent Motor Cars
Haynes Publishing; Somerset, UK; 2011; 0857330632 / 9780857330635; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; Makarand Baokar 
In 1898 the first three 'horseless carriages' were imported into British India and so began Indian royalty's love affair with the automobile. During the first half of the 20th century the choicest cars with the most unusual coachwork made their way to India to satisfy the varied tastes and demands of the rajas and the maharajas. All manner of ceremonial throne cars, hunting cars, wedding cars and cars for state processions were owned by 500-odd Indian princes who tried to outdo each other in terms of pomp, glamour and splendour. Of the several thousand such cars that came to India, just a few hundred survive today and this magnificent book focuses on 70 of these together with the people associated with them. Printed Pages: 384 with 592 colour illustrations. 036555
