"Adhunik Nagpur" (1854-2002)

A new book on the history of Nagpur City, written by a well-known historian of Nagpur, Dr.B.R.Andhare and his associate Dr. S .M . Sontakke will shortly take its place on the book stand. The book entitled “Adhunik Nagpur: 1854-2002” is a weighty book of about 650 pages encompassing the history of Nagpur City through a period of 150 years. Its inception by the Gond Ruler Bakt Buland in the early 18th century, its expansion and beautification by the succeeding Bhonsla Rulers, followed by the over lordship of the English East India Company and its annexation by the Company in 1854, direct rule of the British Government, capital city of Madhya Pradesh after independence and finally the second capital of Maharashtra State – all these successive stages in the political life of the city are depicted in the book. Besides, the research work also narrates the social, religions and cultural life of the city in details. This from historiological perspective this work, constitutes a model both of local history and contemporary history.

Penned by historians of long standing, the work is based on many years of persistent and incessant research. All technicalities of local history writing, which in itself is a back-breaking task, have been scrupulously followed. It is narrative in style, with a long bibliography, cop ions references, many appendices, photographs, maps and last but not the least, biographies of eminent sons of Nagpur. It thus gives the readers a total, comprehensive view of the city. What makes the writing more interesting is the fact that this fabric of historical picture is interwoven and interspersed with a number of little colorful details, so far unknown even to the older generation of Nagpurians. The book also enumerates important roads, buildings, institutions, temples place of entertainment etc. giving their exact locations. With all these special teatimes the book becomes a perfect guide for travelers visiting and exploring Nagpur. It certainly constitutes and valuable contribution to the history of Modern Nagpur for which the authors deserve heartily congratulations.
