About the Author

 

Sri S.N. Jha, IAS (1972), formerly Chairman, Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation, Lucknow, has acquired a long experience of more than three decades occupying many important positions in the State administration with distinguished records.

Preface

 

This book owes much to my experience while working in the Planning Department, Government of Uttar Pradesh and my association with a number of departments as also with divisional and district administration in different parts of this State, which provided me expansive and pragmatic insights regarding distinctive characteristics of land, people, customs, resources, economy, etc. of Uttar Pradesh together with its fascinating past with illustrious events of power and politics; bravery and brilliance: sacrifices and successes, etc, on the one hand and treasure of culture and crafts; literature and learning; religion and rituals on the other, In fact, spectrum of such a wide range of valuable ingredients formed the subject matter of this book.

 

In the treatment of the text, a conscious attempt has been made to cover facts and features of every component pertaining to the state of Uttar Pradesh in this slender document to the possible extent so as to ensure their conceptual and emperical validation. No claim is, however, made that the book is. either "comprehensive" or free from weaknesses.

 

However, the present study which encompasses so vast, varied and significant matters that each of these itself deserves treatment of a separate volume. It is hoped that book will generate enough interest among students including scholars and prove useful to those interested in the study of Uttar Pradesh.

 

I am indebted to Sri Banwari Lal, former Joint Director and Advisor to the State Planning Institute, U.P, Lucknow, for his valuable help and advice without which this work would not have been timely accomplished. My discussions with Dr. D. M. Diwakar, Prof. Giri, Institute of Development Studies, Lucknow have always been rewarding. I am also grateful to all those who helped me in this regard.

 

Lastly, I wish to place my gratitude on record to the National Book Trust, India, New Delhi for offering me an opportunity to write this book.

Testimonials
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...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
