CAN LUCKNOW BE PARIS ?


CONTRIBUTED BY THE INDIAN EYE

In continuation with the article on Lucknow, a very interesting article has been contributed by The Indian Eye. The article talks about the transformations that took place in the cityscape of Lucknow after the mutiny.

Excerpt from the article

It was an early winter morning in 1858. A British soldier, engrossed in his thoughts, was taking a third lap of his morning walk at Alambagh (outside the city of Lucknow). “Can Lucknow be Paris?” he thought.  He was Robert Napier, the chief of the staff at Lucknow. He had to draw an outline for Lucknow, which would change the city forever !
