Pandemic in Riyasat Lockdown Voyage with Aunjaneya Kumar Singh, IAS

Author Name: Nivedita Tomar | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

Rampur is a small district in the state Uttar Pradesh. It was formerly a princely state in British India. Its social and psychological life still bears a few imprints of that bygone era. While stories and legends float in its air, Rampur is slowly opening its eyes to newer times. Being famous or, rather, notorious for its Rampuri Chaku, Rampur has its own ways of finding solutions to problems.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world and the lockdown was announced in India, Rampur responded to it in Rampuri style. In this book, I have tried to record the period of the first lockdown as it unfolded in Rampur. Often, the most disastrous situations are the ones that leave in our hands profound wisdom. How much wisdom I inculcated, I cannot say. For me, it was an emotional ride with infinite ups and downs.

Nivedita Tomar

Nivedita Singh Tomar is a civil official serving in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Although she has received no formal literary training, she writes to satisfy her soul, jotting down words based on how her soul feels and articulates itself. She claims it is difficult for her to describe herself as a writer. She believes that life is vast and that she has barely done anything to claim a name for herself. She is on the initial stretch of her road to learning about life under the ancient Awadhi skies of Lucknow. She has also published a poetry collection, titled Songs of Shoreless Winds.

In writing this memoir, she has been supported a lot by her 'Dada’, Mr Aunjaneya Kumar Singh. Many inputs have been provided by him. Without him, this memoir would not have existed.
