Description

About the Book

 

The University of Allahabad is the fourth oldest university in India, and institution that has produced innumerable political figures, jurists, bureaucrats, writers and men of letters. Its history resounds with famous names, and its inspiring and entertaining campus lore has been passed enriched by the many stories of the personalities, European and Indian, who have been associated with it. It counts, amongst its luminaries Motilal Nehru, Madan Mohan Malaviya, Dr. Dharamvir Bharti and many more. Note to forget vice chancellors life Sir Sunder Lal, Gangadhar Jha and Amarnatha Jha who were legends in themselves.

 

In this book, Neelam Saran Gaur fondly recalls the many stories and anecdotes associated with the University to put together a comprehensive history of this iconic institution. Starting from the inception of the college at what  was then Lowther Castle to its present-day avatar, she traces its long journey of almost 128 years analysing the history of the University against the backdrop of the emergence of the Indian nation.

 

A centre of high learning, a political hub during the national movement and a celebrated literary nucleus, the story of Allahabad University is one that deserves to be told and more importantly, read by all.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
