About My Work
My work, which broadly deals with the urban history of India, often engages with the transformations occurring in the Indian city in nineteenth and twentieth century. Apart from looking in the transformations in city spaces, I also trace many of the intellectual ideas that were in vogue in the world but had influence in India. In particular, I also focus on how planning ideas in Britain, the metropole affected colonies like India. I also look at the inspirations drawn by Indian Nationalists during that time in their effort to transform city spaces.
