Delhi Walk Festival-Shaam e Awadh : A baithak in the Tomb of Safdarjung
November 12, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm UTC+5.5Rs.472
As you sit on the lawns of the tomb where the second Nawab of Awadh lies, under the evening sky, the Karavan will take you through the golden streets of Shiraz -e-Hind, as Awadh was once proudly called. Awadh, along with Delhi, is synonymous with the Ganga Jamuni Tehzeeb. It’s multicultural traditions, ethnicity, poetry and cuisine all came together to give it the famous phrase ‘Subah e Benaras, Shaam e Awadh’. Through stories, we will weave our way across the gentle waters of the Gomti, turn to greet the Nawabs in their palaces, witness Begum Hazrat Mahal’s acts of bravery during the mutiny, waft through the royal kitchens, gaze at the court’s glamorous courtesans as they display their exotic charms and hear some interesting anecdotes about the famed Delhi-Awadh rivalry. We will also discuss the rise and fall of the Nawabs. Do join us, especially if you want to get a better understanding of why the poet Josh wrote these lines about his love for Awadh; ‘Kal bhi jiske tazkire the, anjuman dar anjuman Shaam e Awadh hai aaj bhi’.
