Calcutta by Krishna Dutta

Book Description

Calcutta (renamed Kolkata in 2001) is a city of extremes, where exquisite refinement rubs shoulder with coarse commercialism and political violence. Krishna Dutta explores these multiple paradoxes, giving personal insight into Calcutta's unique history and modern identity as reflected in its architecture, literature, cinema, and music.

Dal Cookbook by Krishna Dutta Dal Cookbook, Hardback (September 2013)

Dal is to India what pasta is to Italy. Cheap to produce, highly nutritional, suitable for long storage and capable of being cooked in a basic pot on an open fire, dal has been providing nourishment to millions of Indians for millennia

Calcutta by Krishna Dutta Calcutta, Paperback (January 2009)

In the popular imagination, Calcutta is a packed and pestilential sprawl, made notorious by the Black Hole and the works of Mother Teresa. Kipling called it a City of Dreadful Night, and a century later V.S. Naipaul, Gnter Grass and Louis Malle revived its hellish image.

Rabindranath Tagore by Krishna Dutta Rabindranath Tagore, Hardback (February 1995)

This is a biography of Rabindraneth Tagore who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. An educational, social, political and religious reformer, he wrote poetry, short stories, novels, essays and plays, and he painted and composed songs. This book focuses on the man, not his art.
