The Remnants of Invasions in India

Qutub Minar, New Delhi, India

in dinoñ garche dakan meñ hai baḌī qadr-e-sukhan

(Nowadays, there’s a lot of respect to poetry in the Deccan)

kaun jaa.e ‘zauq’ par dillī kī galiyāñ chhoḌ kar

(But who would want to leave the alleyways of Delhi, Zauq?)

– Sheik Ibrahim Zauq
