About the Book
This book contained Excerpt from Indian Architecture: Its Psychology, Structure, and History, From the First Muhammadan Invasion to the Present Day. For fifty years Indian departmentalism has followed a system of building, demoralising alike to the architect and the craftsman, which has been as injurious to the true interests of the British Raj as it has been fatal to the development of art and craft in India. Great Britain, like every other European country, has slowly come to realise how prodigal she has been in the last two centuries with her own handicrafts and all other forms of artistic wealth which belong to national well- being and are the true expression of it. What finer opportunity can there be than the building of the new Delhi for inaugurating a new architectural and educational policy which will remove the incubus now pressing so hardly upon Indian craft and industry, and at the same time give a great impulse to the new movement for the revival of architecture in this country.
