New Delhi in the mid-1950s forms Raana Haider’s first recollection of India. She accompanied her diplomat father on his posting to New Delhi. Some fifty years later, she was once again living in New Delhi – this time accompanying her diplomat husband. India: Beyond the Taj and the Raj is the account of the author’s travel across the complex tapestry that is India – underlined with historical and literary narratives by generations of writers on India. Vestiges of the Mughal legacy crowned by the Taj Mahal are relived, as are remnants of the Raj.

Paris is a feeling and not a city. It is un cri de coeur (a call of the heart). Parisian Portraits exemplifies the aphorism - plus change, plus est la mme chose (the more it changes, the more it is the same). Raana Haider explores the yesterday, today and tomorrow of the most beautiful city in the world. In the City of Lights, she is charmed by the Are de Triomphe, the Bois de Boulogne, the Champs-Elysees.
