1 Nayantara Sahgal
A Situation in New Delhi
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143102753 / 9780143102755; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Shivraj is dead and with him the values with which he had governed the country for over a decade. While his successors destroy the idealistic world he had built, Shivraj’s circle of intimate friends—his sister Devi, the education minister; Usman Ali, vice chancellor of Delhi University; and Michael Calvert, an English writer—struggle to find order in the chaos, even as Rishad, Devi’s son, loses himself in it. Juxtaposing the conflict of personal relationships with the larger canvas of corrupt politics in A Situation in New Delhi, Nayantara Sahgal masterfully weaves a tale that grips the reader from start to finish.

4 Nayantara Sahgal (Ed.)
Nehru’s India: Essays on the Maker of the Nation
Speaking Tiger Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385288265; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Nehru’s influence stretched beyond the Freedom Movement and the political and bureaucratic boundaries of prime ministerhood. A man of letters, it was Nehru who initiated the setting up of the Sahitya Akademi devoted to literature, the National School of Drama and the National Institute of Design; just as, in the field of technology and business management, he established the Indian Institutes of Technology and the Indian Institutes of Management across the country. He was equally the force behind the setting up of dams and factories, which he regarded as the temples of modern IndiaToday, in the year of his 125th birth anniversary, the four key dimensions of Indian nationhood, as conceived and implemented by Nehru – democracy, secularism, socialism and non-alignment – have altered to a point where they have changed almost beyond recognition or even abandoned altogether. To quote Mani Shankar Aiyar, ‘… What needs examination is whether fifty years after he [Nehru] passed away, these are still the defining parameters of India’s contemporary nationhood and, if so, how should they be interpreted in the light of present circumstances?’As the debate continues between Nehru’s supporters who believe in his enduring contribution, and his detractors who attempt to deny it, the definitive word, perhaps, comes from Nayantara Sahgal, who says in her Introduction, ‘No Nehru, no modern India. The ground we stand on was laid in Nehru’s time.’Printed Pages: 192. 103366

7 Nayantara Sahgal
Storm in Chandigarh
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143102761 / 9780143102762; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
As the quarrel over boundaries, water and electric power between Punjab and the newly created Haryana intensifies, Gyan Singh, the chief minister of Punjab, threatens to launch a crippling strike that will affect both states. With the chief minister of Haryana, Harpal Singh, refusing to concede any advantages, the stage is set for a confrontation. It is at this point that Vishal Dubey, the Centre’s most able bureaucrat, is sent to Chandigarh to alleviate the situation. As he tries to resolve the chaos in the common capital, Vishal finds himself drawn into the lives of two couples—Jit and Mara and Inder and Saroj—and the small dramas and casual betrayals that are a universal feature of human relationships. Storm in Chandigarh demonstrates Nayantara Sahgal’s keen understanding of individual relationships and her remarkable ability to tell stories that continue to enthrall readers over the years.
