Sikh-religionen, grunnlagt av guru Nanak (1469-1539), utviklet og spredde seg i Nord-India. Kulturelt sett er sikhene et av de rikeste samfunnene i dagens India. Boken beskriver sikhenes turbulente historie, deres tro på én gud, deres ti guruer og det kasteløse brorskapet. Man kan også lese om sikhenes skikker, tro, ritualer, dans, tilbedelsesformer, bryllupsfeiring og andre overgangsritualer. Første del av boken består av tekst med mindre illustrasjoner innimellom.

Boken er skrevet av en av Indias mest kjente forfattere, og han har tidligere skrevet et standardverk i to bind om sikh-religionen. Raghu Rai, som har tatt bildene til boken, er en av Indias mest kjente fotografer, og han er også internasjonal kjent, blant annet med arbeider i store engelskspråklige tidsskrifter som National Geographic, Life og Time

"Vast, erotic, irreverant magnum opus on the city of Delhi. The principal narrator of the saga, which extends over six hundred years, is a bawdy, ageing [sic] reprobate who loves Delhi as much as he does the hijda whore Bhagmati--half man, half woman with the sexual inventiveness and energy of both the sexes. Travelling through time, space and history to 'discover' his beloved city, the narrator meets a myriad of people--poets and princes, saints and sultans, temptresses and traitors, emperors and eunuchs--who have participated in (and been witness to) the major historical forces that have shaped and endowed Delhi with its very special mystique."--Page 4 of cover
