This book is a rare collection of his photographs taken between 1942 and 1978 in India, as well as in post-9/11 America. The photographs in this volume are of great historical importance as they capture various facets of pre- and post-Independence India the freedom movement, the Partition, famines, riots, and peasant and social movements, important political figures, artists, writers, and other eminent personalities.
