This volume, based on a wide range of Urdu sources, highlights the pluralism and multiculturalism of qasbas in colonial Awadh. Moving away from an urban Lucknow-centric approach for colonial Awadh, the author studies qasbati identity, its inheritance of Indio-Persian culture, and syncretic culture. The book negotiates the connections of the local and tha national in terms of political and cultural identity. So the interlinkages between the events and movements at the national level, the channels of communication, symbol and image-making in colonial India and in the qasbas of Awadh are portrayed history of the subcontinent.
