This book by NazIkramullah is a beautiful showpiece of the revival of this forgotten Ganga-Jamuni 'tehzeeb'. The book portrays a vivid, lively and elaborate picture of how the two cultures, Muslim and Hindu, everything that defined them - their religious beliefs, thought, literature,music, art, architecture, traditions, costumes and ornaments, food preference, common courtesies - almost every aspect of life, dissolved to create a new face.
