About the book

A wealthy city from its inception, Ahmedabad is one of India’s megacities that still preserves its medieval core. The city’s art, architecture, and culture have responded to the many social, political, and economic challenges over six centuries of its history. Ahmedabad was a front?runner of the independence movement, the home of a booming textile industry, and the crucible of modern architecture and design. This volume commemorates 600 years of the founding of Ahmedabad with essays on modernism, art, crafts, food, and heritage by writers who have made this city their home. Each essay presents a different portrait of the city, as no singular view of Ahmedabad can do justice to its multi-faceted complexity.
