Spice of Awadh–Lucknow with Dr. NavinaJafa
Operated in partnership with TURNOS
1st-2nd December, 2018  

Uniqueness of the Journey
The Travel to Lucknow is almost preconditioned and usually limited to the ethos that this location called the Constantinople of the East is only about a gilded identity of the Exotic Nawabs imprinted in its cultural geography. The sojourn curated and presented by Dr. NavinaJafa enables travelers to meet Tradition bearers, decode commentaries that speak of Machiavellian power struggles, laments, rejoices, rituals, lifestyles and linguistic heritage of an extremely cosmopolitan city that has over centuries made Lucknow- Capital of Uttar Pradesh – the palimpsest ecology of an urban identity located in one of the richest alluvial   plains of the world. Not only will the Exploration touch on the past, but also the inversion represented in the dynamic tensions of culture, sociological politics associated with the making of Dalit Heritage


Theatrical Presentations with Real-Time Deeply Researched Experiences

  • Special Interactions with Tradition bearers with recorded histories on the revolt of 1857, and partition of India
  • Exclusive visits to palaces and narratives untold of European Adventurers
  • Interpretations of Shia Islam as lived Reality
  • Unopened Chapters and Primary Sources on Tawaifs or Geishas of Lucknow
  • Real time Experiences and Factual information on Differences between the Mughal and Lucknow Cuisine
  • Creation of a New Exotica – Heritage of the socio-politics of Dalits
