The year 1857 is a landmark in ’the history of the country. It, at least for a time, shook the
roots of the most powerful Empire that then existed in the world. It is therefore only proper that its centenary should be celebrated by appreciative remembrance. So far four books have appeared in the market and others may be in the offing. All these books have been for obvious reason written from an all-India angle. They could not naturally be expected to mention details of the movement‘in any one city, even if it be Delhi. Yet Delhi played
the most important part in the movement. Before it started its organizers looked to Delhi for guidance. Once it started all eyes turned towards it, all feet marched thither. Even the British recognized its due importance by concentrating all their efforts for its capture, even at the expense of their other possessions in India. They were rightly convinced that once the city of Delhi fell to them, the movement was doomed and could not last long in other parts of the country.

Rajasthan, Delhi and Agra are the jewels in India's crown. From fairy-tale palaces and epic forts to dizzying festivals and wildlife encounters, this is India at its unbeatable Bollywood best.
