Q. The City of Nawabs is ?
A. Hyderabad
B. Lucknow
C. Mysore
D. Ahmedabad
Ans: B (The capital of Uttar Pradesh and once the city of Nawabs. Lucknow has always been known for its erudity, the refined way in which its people converse, the refined tastes and otherwise that is so much a part of Lucknow. The city probably derives its name from the legend that Rama gave away this part of the country to Lakshmana, his younger brother. Lucknow was the abode of the Nawabs of Avadh, and their regal pastimes and pleasures are legendary. They refined their formal speech, were fond of song and dance, and nurtured Urdu verse as well as the Kathak school of court dances. The food from the royal kitchens was the result of creative experimentation, exquisite and delicate in taste. Their cuisine, and the fragrance of kebabs roasting over grilled fires in the evenings is still a common occurrence. )
