Book Description

 Popular definitions of Lucknow refer to its famed etiquette, refined culture and gastronomy. After all, for a long time, Lucknow has been one of those few cities in our country that have been a safe haven for great architecture, literature, music and food; where various forms of art and craft have blossomed. However the newer times have opened up this Awadhi melting pot to fresh aspirations and negotiations.

People called Lucknow characterises this rich multifaceted mosaic of the city, with 45 stories. Stories that traverse through time present and past, with hope and longing for a brighter future: from 12-year-old Wajid who makes paper envelopes to Malika Kishwar a few hundred years ago to Lucknow's legendary host Farid Faridi alongside a poignant story of love and loss but triumph of the spirit in Channu Lal.

For the 44 authors, who are ardent lovers of Lucknow, penning these stories have been an act of pause and reflection! In the city’s inherent lyrical andaz, the book allows you to unlayer time, giving an insight into its very soul.
