Book Description

Hard Bound . New. (Size : 22 x 28 cms.), Colour B& W Illus.), This volume deals with the life and times of The Tragic King, Wajid Ali Shah, the last nawab of Awadh. It unfolds the history of the Dynasty of the nawabs of Awadh. Their rise and the supremacy at the court of the later Mughal Emperors and the formation of the Kingdom of Awadh. It deals in depth about the life and times of Wajid Ali Shah, and tells the story of the colonial conspiracy which resulted in the annexation of Awadh by Dalhousie. For the first time, this volume unfolds the new facet of Wajid Ali Shah, as a genius. Wajid Ali Shah was the man who revolutionised the Dance of Kathak, by introducing Thumri, Costume, ballett, and the elegance (nazakar) to it. This book is profusely illustrated by rare etchings, colour and b & W illustrations. vii+164 Year of Publication 2002 8186782788
