History of Lucknow - The City Of Nawabs
In Episode 2 of Histories of Our Cities with Saumya, we dwell into the glorious past of Lucknow, which is rightly called the ‘Nawabon Ka Shehar’ or the ‘City of Nawabs’. From the 18th century trivia of how Lucknow was made the capital of Awadh because of an upset Nawab’s whim to the story of how the juicy and immensely popular Tunday Ke Kabab came into existence, this episode covers it all. The history of Chikankari in Lucknow has also been explored in this episode as well as the fascinating folklore behind several of the majestic monuments in the city. Oh, and fun fact, Lucknow happens to be the birthplace and hometown of our host, Saumya. So, dive in already! And if you have any suggestions or feedback – or want to share anecdotes of your own city – say hello to Saumya on Instagram – @trivedi.saumya Happy Listening!
