Besieged: Voices from Delhi 1857
Publisher: Penguin Global
This groundbreaking, first-time translation of the Mutiny Papers documenting the siege of Delhi shifts focus away from conventional understandings of 1857. Mahmood Farooqui's translations chronicle the lives of courtesans, soldiers, potters, spies, faqirs, doctors and harassed policemen, all trying to live through the turmoil of their city. They present a searing portrait of the hopes, beliefs and failures of ordinary people who lived through the end of an era.
