Synopsis: A rare and evocative photographic portrait of India's abandoned mansions and desert towns. Then there is the magic of Kip Scott's book: the evocative, marvellously vivid images of mansions, monuments, and frescoes of Shekhawati. The treasures of my own town of Mahansar are glimpsed in the images of the Poddar Golden Haveli, which has the finest murals of Shekhawati in gold leaf and glittering Belgian mirror work, and the crystal chandeliers of and huge murano and Belgian cut glasses of the Tolaram Ka Kamra. Scott's book arrives at a an opportune moment when so many of Shekhawati's glorious but often abandoned mansions face the danger of decay or the possibility of preservation and the connection of the past to the future. Lal Singh Shekhawat
