Lucknow: Fire of Grace is a historical and comtemporary narrative account of Lucknow in a time span of more than 250 years from 1722 till the present day. Combining power, aristrocracy, grace, freedom, science, subterfuge and style and Indian modern secular Renaissance, a Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb arose from the depths of a fierce Thakur-Brahmin-Sheikh-Sayyid-Mughal-Pathan-Ahir-Pasi society. Awadh was the last kingdom to be annexed in 1856 and Lucknow offered the firecest resistance to the British in 1857.The living symbols of the past were allowed to die down. But Lucknow does not wallow in an existential crisis. Beaten in many ways, it is still stoically defiant about its past achievements.
