Nizamuddin’s shrine and the dergah complex is a source of comfort. Each time I have been there, I have felt uncanny sense of comfort and solace. Found this terrific image here –
How lovely. Gorgeous architecture, and a wonder to note that Amir Khusro’s shrine is there also. Perhaps part explanation of that sense of comfort and solace…
Abr mi barad-o man shovm-e az yar-e judaa
Choon kunam dil becheneen roz zedildar judaa.
Abr baraan wa man-o yar satadah ba-widaaâ€™
Man judaa girya kunaan, abr judaa, yaar judaa
The cloud weeps, and I become separated from my friend –
How can I separate my heart from my heartâ€™s friend on such a day.
The cloud weeping â€“ and I and the friend standing, bidding farewell –
I weeping separately, the clouds separately, the friend separatelyâ€¦..
