Ah Delhi!

Why do you go to Delhi? Go there not for killing time but to receive admonition. There is a person who lives in Bara Hindurao. He said that I can not look at the Red Fort. When I look at it a piercing pain runs through the heart. This is the place where the King will sit on the Peacock Throne (Takh-e-Ta-oos) and the supplicants will gather in front of him. All that is lost and gone. Why did it happen? Because of our deeds.
