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.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
