A village on steroids? A concrete hiccup ? A real estate goldmine? What Gurgaon is, is in the eye of the beholder. For the aspirational migrant, rich or poor, Gurgaon is the Millennium City, with its sleek malls, sky-scraping condominiums, safe and gracious gated colonies, tenement housing, and life-changing jobs. For corporations, it is the mecca of opportunity, as countless Fortune 500 companies have flocked to its business towers and parks, at once spacious, elegant and convenient for doing business.

For its older residents, a more intriguing fate could not have befallen their small town. For the media, it is the city that makes news often for the wrong reasons brawls in pubs, crimes against women, dubious real estate transactions, mega traffic jams ... But this city began as an obscure hamlet, and has had several hoary incarnations before it acquired its present density, industry, wealth and civic fabric. It is this tangled tale, more thematic than chronological, that this book tells. Veena Talwar Oldenburg has been witness to the Gurgaon s astonishing evolution for over twenty years. This volume is the first ever rigorously researched narrative of the city s making that speaks to those readers of modern history, audiences compelled by Gurgaon s bewildering growth and the very people who made it their home now and for generations to come.
