Book Description
Located at the confluence of the Ganga, Yamuna and the invisible Saraswati, Allahabad, or `Godville` the `babu` translation of the name that Mark Twin came across has been frequented by pilgrims for two thousand years. However, it was only towards the latter half of the nineteenth century that Allahabad shed its identity as another dusty north Indian town and emerged as one of the premier cities of the Raj and the capital of the North West Provinces. This metamorphosis, ironically, was brought about by colonial rule, whose beginnings Fanny Parkes has described at great length. Allahabad was the home not only of the Pioneer, where kipling was employed but also of literary figures like Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Suryakant Tripathi `Nirala` .
