About The Book

Gurgaon means different things to different people. For the layperson, it is the city that is written up in the media when an untoward event or incident occurs - brawls in pubs, crimes against women, dubious real estate transactions. For the aspirational working class, it is the Millennium City with its sleek malls, sky-scraping residential and corporate towers and gated colonies. And for the businessman, it is the city of opportunities, thanks to the countless Fortune 500 companies that have set up base here. But this city, with a Metro station titled 'Guru Dronacharya' began as an obscure hamlet, and has had several hoary incarnations before it acquired its present density, industry, wealth and civic fabric. Veena Talwar Oldenburg has lived in Gurgaon for over twenty years and been witness to its astonishing evolution. In Gurgaon, she has written the first rigorously researched history of the city's making that speaks to an audience interested and invested in its growth, and to those who live and work here now and will do for generations to come.
