About the Event

Some say, Delhi is a city off migrants. Everyone, who stepped on this soil brought his own culture. The mixing of hundreds of cultures gave birth to a new modern society, with its own style and system.This Saturday, we dive deep into one aspect of this modern society, as Dr. Pushpesh Pant talks about the History of Delhi, through it's Food. Many food items were invented for luxury, some for medicinal reasons and few slipped out of Royal Kitchens. They all contributed to Delhi's history in their own manner and shaped up the modern day Society.
