    Regarding La Martinierre I wish to add that while I was studying in Lucknow University in 1974 they used to say- `JISKO NA DE MAULA USKE DE ASAF-UD-DAULA`. People of Lucknow used to talk of Asaf-ud-Daula as if he had died only recently. I was astounded to realize that such a great soul had passed away maybe for more than 100 years.
    La Martiennere is one of the pride of Lucknow even today.
