Lucknow Imprints A Poetic and Historical Account of the Golden City of the East

Author Name: Sanobar Haider, Shweta Mishra "shawryaa" | Format: Paperback | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details

The book Lucknow Imprints: A Poetic and Historical Account of the Golden City of the East is about Lucknow – the history of Lucknow, the lineage of Nawabs, the Revolt, the cuisines, the poetry, the monuments and the experiences of people of Lucknow in the city. The book is unique as it is rendered in dialogue form by two women (the two authors) hailing from Lucknow, who talk about the city in their own style, reminiscing over memories and gradually unfolding their feelings for the city. Dr. Sanobar Haider discusses the history of the city, while Dr. Shweta Mishra “shawryaa” indulges in Shayari and poetry which are naturally inspired by the city. The book blends literary and historical facets to create a peculiar feel, which talks about Lucknow with all its smells, tastes and sounds.
