I am in process of writing a book about Shaharwali society and culture that also include religious and historic descriptions. Few chapters of the book is already written. It is after five years of blogging about the society.
This book, I believe, will help spreading information about rich traditions of Shaharwali society of Azimganj and Jiaganj in Murshidabad. I have found several historical books that depicts rich traditions, culture and religiousness of Murshidabad Jain society.
Dr. Shivprasad, renowned Jain historian working in Jain research and study center at Jaipur is helping me in collecting historical references. I am thankful to him. Suraj Nowlakha has motivated me to write this book and he is also sponsoring the project. He wants to release the book on the occasion of Mandalji ki pooja at Azimganj.
I have already posted details of the project in this blog in Hindi language. Please view these posts and help me with information, data, references, evidences, images etc. Your cooperation will enrich the book and I will feel obliged. I have received some from Pradip Kothari, Patna and am thankful to him. Suraj also provided some information along with his father Vimal Bhaisab. Thanks to them.
