Abdul Haleem Sharar


"The book I recently read and enjoyed is called Guzashta Lukhnow. Apart from carrying a detailed description of Lucknow, it talks about how the city was built and developed by the Nawabs and their people. It was a charismatic city with all the best possible entertainment and luxuries that one could imagine along with the many religious activities which are still remembered as the best ever in united India.

Written by Abdul Haleem Sharar some 80 years ago, Guzashta Lukhnow still has all the elements of interest for today’s readership. It carries descriptions of bird fights, the many kinds of dances, special cuisines and sweets, style of clothes and headgear along with many other interesting facts related to old Lukhnow. In short, the book captures the magic and charm of a bygone era.”
