This is the diary of a nature lover, patterned after the traditional Baramasi of Indian poets. It tells us of the trees, flowers, fruits, birds, snakes, insects and animals that are found in Delhi and its surroundings through the twelve months of the year. It also mentions the many fairs and festivals that are celebrated in the country; the story of clouds and what their shapes and movements mean; why hailstorms come in spring and early summer and not in winter; how birds communicate with each other and why their calls vary with the seasons. Woven into the text are poems by Kalidasa, Guru Nanak, Meer Taqi Meer, Mirza Ghalib, Akbar Allahabadi, Rabindranath Tagore, Rudyard Kipling and many others.Delhi through the Seasons marks Khushwant Singh’s classic collaboration with Suddhasattwa Basu, one of India’s finest painters of natural phenomena. This collector’s edition is a rare treasure.
