A rare collection of photographs taken by internationally acclaimed photographer Sunil Janah between late 1930s and late 1970s in India, this historically important volume captures various aspects of pre and post-Independence India - The freedom movement, the Partition, famines, riots, peasant and social movements and important political figures, artists, writers and other eminent personalities. Including close to 400 photographs that offer glimpses of the India that was and the India that is, across the bridge of Independence, this volume is a rare combination of the personal history and evolution of an artist and that of a nation.
