Asafi Mosque, Lucknow

Lucknow! The very name conjures up a way of life – poetry, music, dance, cuisine, embroidery, eclectic architecture, a cosmopolitan way of life long before that term became fashionable, and of course an old world courtesy. To experience Lucknow or Avadh or Oude vicariously, you need to just see three films – Chaudhvin Ka Chand, Shatranj Ke Khilari and Umrao Jaan (the Rekha version). But the place is better seen in person.

Come join historian Sriram V on a trail of Lucknow – to experience the world of the Nawabs, the last of whom was the poet-king Wajid Ali Shah. There are also several interesting Europeans whose tales have to be narrated – Claude Martin, Sir Henry Lawrence and his wife Honoria, Sir James Outram. There are also the remains of India’s first war of independence, which make for a poignant memory.

Come join historian Sriram V on a tour of this region.
