blog 338: nana sahib gets his 21 gun salute for being a stooge

Telegraphic chatter reports that Lucknow entertained the exiled Nana Sahib. Not in style however. No 21 gun salute. No grand durbar. The Begum Regent gave Nana Sahib a measly 11 gun salute and no reception whatsoever. Poor Nana Sahib. He brought about a civil war in order to crown himself Peshwa to get a 21 gun salute and ended up turban in hand, fleeing for his life, with all but no treasure, begging for sanctuary, like his stepfather, and was jeered by the Muslims of Lucknow. So much for stooges.
