Beseiged: Voices from Delhi 1857


Formats & editions


This groundbreaking, first-time translation of the Mutiny Papers documenting the siege of Delhi shifts focus away from conventional understandings of 1857. Mahmood Farooqui's translations chronicle the lives of courtesans, soldiers, potters, spies, faqirs, doctors and harassed policemen, all trying to live through the turmoil of their city. They present a searing portrait of the hopes, beliefs, and failures of ordinary people who lived through the end of an era.
