The name of Cawnpore is indelibly connected with the blackest episode in the history of the Indian Mutiny - the massacre here in July 1857 of hundreds of women and children by the Nana Sahib.
The insight knowledge, vipassana nana, arising at that moment is not taken for self either.
His adopted son, Nana Sahib, inherited his accumulated savings, but could obtain no further recognition.
Before the rise of the First Dynasty of Babylon, however, Elam had recovered its independence, and in 2280 B.C. the Elamite king Kutur-Nakhkhunte made a raid in Babylonia and carried away from Erech the image of the goddess Nana.
His adopted son grew up to be the Nana Sahib, of infamous memory, who took a leading part in the Mutiny.
