About this title

Synopsis:

The book presents a series of perspectives on the cultural evolution of 16th-century Bhuj in the district of Kachchh, India a city that witnessed considerable destruction in the earthquake of January 2001. It provides glimpses of the city through photographs taken during the 19th century and later. An analysis of the three-year redevelopment planning process that began to give new shape to the city after the earthquake, outlines a plan of action research . It also touches upon issues of the value of heritage conservation in large-scale redevelopment.

Review:

"By breathing life into a colourful, broken city, almost a work of loving restoration, Tyabji makes his case convincingly for the virtues of ethnography. -- Indian Express"
