I know I am a bit late but how can I forget to start a blog about the place I love the most in the world. The city where I spent my growing-up years, the city which helped me make many lifelong friends and the city which has most happiest & cherishable memories, My Lucknow.

Lucknow, as everybody knows, is called the ‘City of Nawabs’. Yes, the name has a rich history behind it. The city’s design has been greatly influenced by several Mughal emperors and incorporates their rich culture. Hence, the title. It is also known as the ‘Golden city of India’.

The society here is famous throughout the world for its etiquette and mehmaan-nawazi. The guests are literally regarded as god here and the phrase ‘AthitiDevoBhava’ holds its maximum meaning in this city. It is humorously also famous for its ‘pehle aap’ culture and people in other parts of India sometimes make fun out of it. But, honestly, I feel that pehle aap is a mannerism which takes a strong-willed personality and you will be amazed to find even the richest and the powerful following it which makes me feel really proud.

The above was a small brief about my city. In this blog, I will keep posting various facets in the personality of Lucknow like about its many monuments, its various institutions and many other things. So, look forward to more and also, ideas are most welcome.

Stay tuned……. !!!
