Tasting Paratha and Kebab in Lucknow
Lucknow is the cultural centre of India famous for its monuments, Nababs and delicious food.
The 'tehzib' or mannerism is still thriving and is a matter of pride for Lucknow folks. This is a city that still speaks the language of "aap-janab"(you sir) and the dictum of "pehle aap"(after you) is still a part of everyday life for a true Lakhnawi. It all comes naturaly to Lucknow. Lucknawi Aadab or salutation which has its own sophistication and style.
Wisdom, women and wine are the three things truly understood and respected by the Nawabs. Not a thing of condemnation but an institution it was the “kothas", where sons of Nawabs were deliberately sent to learn the culture, sophistication and respect for the fairer sex.
