1 Narayani Gupta and Sarmistha Dutta Gupta
A Fighting Spirit: Selected Writings of Ashoka Gupta
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381523650; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
An active career spanning seven decades is unusual. And to describe Ashoka Gupta (1912-2008) simply as a social worker is not enough. Till the last day of her life, she was a dynamo, who generated exhilaration and energy in those around her. In this volume, we have tried to capture her personality through her own writings and through the recollections of others. The earliest piece by her was published in 1945, the last written in 2004. They vividly convey the ethos of the timesthe terrible 1940s, through war, famine, riots, and Partitionsituations when actions spoke more strongly than words. The tragedy of Partition was overtaken by the excitement and anticipation of nation-building. For Ashoka Gupta the ideals of the Indian constitution were realistic, and needed to be strengthened by ceaseless hands-on work at the grassroots. Twenty years later, she stood by her husband to battle the injustices done to the refugees from East Pakistan who had migrated in the 1960s and were being rehabilitated in the wilderness called Dandakaranya. This book will be of value to scholars of history, sociology and womens studies, for those working on Mahatma Gandhi, on communitarian relations, on legislation pertaining to women, and on institutional frameworks, particularly the All-India Womens Conference.Printed Pages: 192. 037353

2 Ratish Nanda, Narayani Gupta and O.P. Jain
Delhi: The Built Heritage. A Listing, 2 Vols.
INTACH; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8190028197 / 9788190028196; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 
Delhi is a city of continuity. The excavations at purana Qila indicate that the history of Delhi goes back to the first millennium B.C. Delhi is, therefore one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. It is a city of many layers, each with its own story, where many-a city were built, destroyed and then rebuilt. Many of Delhi’s rulers played a dual role first as destroyers and then as builders. It is ironic that even after independence, we continue to destroy our heritage in the name of ‘development’. This publication by INTACH Delhi Chapter is part of this process. In this publication, we have listed over 1200 buildings that are of archaeological, historical and architectural importance. We have surveyed the many ‘pasts’ of Delhi’s long history and found buildings that are part of that multi-faceted story: the co-existence of diverse sacred centres, educational institutions and administrative structures, homes and palaces, political strongholds, markets, pleasure gardens, memories of war and monuments to peace. This publication contains a varied sample of the multiple layers of Delhi’s ancient history, material evidence of the richness of life and human creativity. However, as listing is a continuous process, we hope to build upon this effort. Printed Pages 737. 029816
