Product Description

The narrator at the beginning of this account wonders about one of the most fabulous countries on earth, a country often torn by extremes, by the most beautiful and the most atrocious experiences, the most spiritual and the most sordid. The plot of The City of Ravens: Paradoxes of Contemporary India begins with a Spanish architect’s trip to Delhi to build the mansion of a wealthy businessman there. During his four-year long stay in the capital, he will have the opportunity to travel throughout the country and reflect on its music, its mythology, its architecture, history, mysticism, that is, all the aspects that make this country unique. The difficult balance between ancestral traditions and modernity; between the excessive and the minuscule; between elegance and kitsch; this is the great challenge of India that the gaze of this observer, devoted to what he sees, discerns.
