#Shiva Diutta on Nov 15, 2016 :
First, let me congratulate you on your use of Lakhnau instead of Lucknow. After independence in 1947 we still retain some of the British spelling, even like Jaipur, instead of Jayapur, (Capital of Irain Jaya is Jayapura) Perhaps you are not aware that the designer of the capital city of Australia, Canberra, lived in Lucknow and is buried there.
It is interesting to read the comparison. I am 86 years old and my wife and I are thinking of exploring living in Lucknow, where my wife was born and brought up and I worked for few years. I was born in Fyzabad, and we spent all our life in India in U.P. and Delhi. We left India in 1963 for UK, and lived in Canberra for over 42 years, working for National Capital Development Commission.
I would be pleased to find out any relevant information before we visit Lucknow to explore the possibility of retirement.
Thanks
Shiva
