The story of how Lucknow (Awadh) was swallowed by the British. How and “What” was swallowed. What a great country it was that was Awadh.

(With thanks to NAQOOSH, Lahore, August1969)

And also with thanks to my friend Mr Liaqat Ali of New Zealand who lent me the Naqoosh copy.

    The format of this story is simply hillarious. Makes more interesting reading. You ‘see’ the theatre AND ‘listen’ to the sounds.

    If writer visits Lucknow now he will be surprised that beauty of LUCKNOW NOW surpasses the erstwhile glory of Lucknow or so called QAISAR BAGH ……………… HAZRATGANJ ………..
    What happened then for that rulers of that era were more responsible and masses paid for their sins.
