Lucknow, under the rule of its idiosyncratic nawabs, was a heady mixture of flourishing art, literature, architecture, sport and a famously cultured lifestyle. The Life and Times of the Nawabs of Lucknow depicts the lives, histories, and cultures of Lucknow's infamous nawabs through more than a hundred pithy and colorful anecdotes, all of which are replete with wily prime ministers, powerful begums, eccentric chefs, accompanied by beautiful illustrations. The Life and Times is a tribute to the many nawabs who all played a crucial role in giving the city of Lucknow its distinctive history and culture. About the Author An eminent writer and columnist, Ravi Bhatt is visiting faculty at the University of Lucknow. He has specialized in Lucknow's history, culture and politics.
