The Sada Suhagin Or Mossa Suhagin..

The first time I met a Sada Suhagin I thought he was a eunuch, but being uneducated in the orders of Sufism in India ,, I shot his pictures , we met at Chor Bazar that used to be my Friday early morning flea market haunts,I gave him a silver ring and he offered me plastic beads that he put around my neck I could not refuse , but they were choking me and I was gasping for breath I removed them not in his presence though and the following Friday returned it to him ..he just gave me a smile ... but he mentioned
that you are a Mauliee a true Malang of Ali .. I was not a malang those days nor was I shooting Sufism all this happened many years later.. I did not even know he was a Sada Suhagin.

Than I saw a a Sada Suhagin at Ajmer station many years later with a beard , and in a shalwar kameez , I was too confused and did not shoot him out of respect for his privacy,,.

Than again I met a Sada Suhagin at Haji Malang I shot a lot of pictures and he was dressed as a woman with a beard , he had children too that he had left at his hometown..

Among the Hijra Shamans and Bawas I shot the Sada Suhagin..and than at Nizamuddin Aulia I met Hassan , this young man , he and his friends came to be blessed by me , he touched my feet , he asked me if I was a Malang I said yes, he was from Hoshiarpur Punjab and he informed me his father too was a Sada Suhagin after his death he Hassan became a Sada Suhagin..

I shot a lot of pictures I have hidden from public view , this I am posting for Hassan, at the tea shop, he offered me tea, he was very generous was giving money to the poor , he asked me if I needed money for my fare , or for my needs I told him I was well taken care of .. and he and his disciples escorted me to the bus stop I took a bus back to Juma Masjid to my hotel it cost me Rs 10 ..
Coming here by ricksha cost me Rs 90 from Tughlak Gate ..

I dont know if I will ever meet him.. but he was a good human being..the Sada Suhagin are men married to a higher divinity ...

The Sacrificial Goat ,,,has all the comforts before slaughter,,,

Now You Know How Cold It Is In Delhi ... LOL

The Holy Shrine of Poet Amir Khusro

Ab'ul Hasan Yamīn ud-Dīn Khusrow (1253–1325 CE) Hindi अमीर खुसरो, (Urdu: ابوالحسن یمین‌الدین خسرو‎;, better known as Amīr Khusrow (also Khusrau, Khusro) Dehlawī (meaning Amir Khusrow of Delhi) (امیر خسرو دہلوی) was a Sufi musician, great poet and scholar. A polymath an iconic figure in the cultural history of the Indian subcontinent. A mystic and a spiritual disciple of Nizamuddin Auliya of Delhi. Amīr Khusrow was not only a notable poet but also a prolific and seminal musician in the time of the Delhi Sultanate, being reputed to have invented both the Sitar and the Tabla. He wrote poetry primarily in Persian, but also in Hindavi. A vocabulary in verse, the Ḳhāliq Bārī, containing Arabic, Persian, and Hindavi terms is often attributed to him.[2]
He is regarded as the "father of Qawwali" (the devotional music of the Sufis in the Indian subcontinent).Introduced the Ghazal style of song into India. These traditions have been kept very much alive in India and Pakistan to this day.[3][4] He is also credited with enriching Indian classical music by introducing Persian, Arabic and Turkish elements into it and was the originator of the khayal and tarana styles of music.
A musician and a scholar, Amir Khusrow was as prolific in tender lyrics as in highly involved prose and could easily emulate all styles of Persian poetry which had developed in medieval Persia, from Khāqānī's forceful qasidas to Nizami's khamsa. He used only 11 metrical schemes with 35 distinct divisions. The verse forms he has written in include Ghazal, Masnavi, Qata, Rubai, Do-Beti and Tarkibhand. His contribution to the development of the g͟hazal, hitherto little used in India, is particularly significant.[5]

Amīr Khusrow was born in Patiyali in Etah Uttar Pradesh. His father, Amīr Sayf ud-Dīn Mahmūd, was a Turkic officer and a member of the Lachin tribe of Transoxania, themselves belonging to the Kara-Khitais.[5][6][7] His mother was the daughter of Rawat Arz, the famous war minister of Balban, and belonged to the Rajput tribes of Uttar Pradesh.[7][8]
Life and career[edit]
Amir Khusro was the son of Amir Saif-ud-Din Mehmood a Turk of Lacheen Hazara. At the invasion of Changez Khan (Genghis Khan) He migrated from his Hometown Kesh near Samarkand to Balkah. Saif-ud-Din was chieftain of Hazara. Shams-ud-Din. Altamish the empire od Delhi welcomed them to his country.. He provided shelter to the dislodged princes artisans, scholars and rich nobles. Saifuddin was among them. It was around 1226 CE. In 1230, he was granted a fief in the district of Patiali (in Etah District of present Uttar Pradesh).
Amir Saif-ud-Din married Bibi Daulat Naz, who bore him four children, three sons and one daughter. Amir Khusro was one among them born in the year 1252-53 CE at Patiyali ( Hazrat Amir khusro Nagar ). His father Saif-ud-Din died in 1260 CE.
Khusro was an intelligent child. Poetry came to him at the early age of eight. After the death of his father, he came to Delhi to his grandfather’s (maternal) Imadul Mulk (Rawat Arz) house. He grew under his grand father’s guardianship. When Amir Khusro was 20 years old, his grandfather who was 113 years old in 1271 CE died.
Deeply saddened by this event he was desperate to find some meaning and purpose in his life. He joined as a soldier in the Army of Malik Chajju a nephew of Sultan Balban. This in turn brought his poetry to the attention of the Assembly of the Royal Court where he was highly honoured. His devoted mother brought him up and little is known about his mother Hazrat Bibi Daulat Naz, but no doubt she was an inspiration for him throughout his life.
Then a double tragedy struck him when he was forty seven years old (1298 A.D.) and on the crest of a wave in his career. His beloved mother and brother died.
He cried like a child and said:
"A double radiance left my star this year
Gone are my brother and my mother,
My two full moons have set and ceased to Shine
In one short week through this ill-luck of mine."
Khusro's homage to his mother on death was: "Where ever the dust of your (mother) feet is found it is like a relic of Para dise for me."
Despite all this tragedy,Khusro buried his sorrow in the power of verse and melody. Bughra Khan son of Balban was invited to listen Amir Khusro. He was so enchanted that he bestowed countless gold coins. The prize impaired the relations with his master Chajju Khan. Khusro left him and went to his new patron Bughra Khan, where he served for four years and came to fame. In 677 A.H/1277 A.D. Bughra Khan was then appointed ruler of Bengal but Amir Khusro decided to return to Delhi. The eldest son Khan, Mohd of Balban (who was in Multan) came to Delhi. When he heard about Amir Khusro he invited him to his court. Finally Amir Khusro accompanied him to Multan in 679 A.H/1279 A.D. Multan at that period was the gateway to Hind and a center place of knowledge and learning. The caravans of scholars, tradesmen and emissaries transited from Baghdad, Arab, Iran to Delhi via Multan. Amir Khusro says that:
"I tied the belt of service on my waist and put on the cap of companionship for another five years. I imparted lustre to the water of Multan from the ocean of my wits and pleasantries." Amir Khusro and another poet Amir Hassan Sijzi were happy under the patronage of Mohd of Balban. Amir Hasan Sijzi was younger to Amir Khusro by two years. Both were in the company of the celebrated historian Hazrat Moulana Ziauddin Barni the writer of "Tareekh-e-Ferozshahi". The work was completed thirty one years after Amir Khusro’s death. His Shrine lies south to Hazrat Amir Khusro’s Shrine in Nizamuddin (Delhi).
In the year 683A.H./1283A.D Jinar Khan a Mongol, invaded India. Khan Mohd his patron was killed in battle trying to stop the invasion. The deep grief of brave Prince Khan Mohd remained in his heart forever. He wrote the two elegy (sorrowful poems) of Prince Khan Mohd describing him the most generous, brave and good human being. At the old age of eighty, King Balban called his second son Bughra Khan from Bengal, but he refused to come back to Delhi. After King Balban’s death his grandson Kikabad was made the King of Delhi who was 17 years of age. Khusro remained in his service for two years (686 A.H to 687 A.H/1286 to 1287 A.D.).
After the death of Kikabad, a Turk soldier Jalaluddin Khilji took power and became the King. He was a poet and loved poets. Khusro was highly honoured and respected in his Darbar and was known as "AMIR KHUSRO". He was made secretary to the King "Mushaf-Dar". His status was raised to ‘Amarat’. The darbar life made Amir Khusro focus more on literary works. Khusro’s Ghazals which he composed in quick succession were set to music and were sung by singing girls every night before King Jalaluddin Khilji. Amir Khusro was rewarded beyond expectations and was acknowledged in a following verse.
"The King of the world Jalal uddin, in reward for my infinite pain which I undertook in composing verses, bestowed upon me an unimaginable treasure of wealth."
King Khilji was a brave soldier and an able administrator. He expanded his Empire and won four battles in a year. He ruled for 6 years from 689A.H/1289A.D to 695A.H/1295A.D. He was murdered by the men of Allauddin Khilji, his nephew and son-in-law. Allauddin Khilji then ascended the throne of Delhi on 22nd Zilhaj 695A.H/1295A.D.
Amir Khusro wrote a short auto-biographical Masnavi called "Shah Name mun"—of Allauddin’s life. Amir Khusro was the few notables who blessed Allauddin Khilji.
Alauddin Khilji was one of the great ruler’s of India in the Delhi Sultanate empire. He was a strong man, hard in nature, brave and intelligent soldier. He expanded his Empire to Deccan in South and far to East and west of India. He ruled for twenty one years. Hazrat Amir Khusro enjoyed his patronage and developed much of his works. Amir Khusro in his book "Khazinatul-Futuh" (the treasures of victory) penned down Allauddin’s construction works, wars, peace and security, administrative services. Further in another poetical work Masnavi "Matta-ul-Anwaar" (Fountain of light) consisted of 3310 verses (completed in 15 days) had the theme of "Love of God". The second masnavi, "Shireen" consisted of 4000 verses. The third Masnavi "Laila Majnu" story of Laila and Majnu and their romance. The fourth voluminous Masnavi was "Aina-e-Sikandari" had 4500 verses relating to the heroic deeds of Alexander the Great. The fifth Masnavi was "Hasht Bahisht" related to the events of King Bahram Gaur. All these works made Amir Khusro a leading luminary in the poetical world. The King Allauddin Khilji was highly pleased by his works and rewarded him handsomely.
After Alauddin Khilji's death, his son Qutubuddin Mukarak Shah became the king. Amir Khusro wrote a Masnavi on Mubarak Shah as "Nahsi Pahar" (Nine Skies), a historical poetry relating the events of Mubarak Shah. He classified his poetry in nine chapters, each part is considered as a sky. In the third chapter he wrote about India and its environment, the atmosphere and seasons, flowers their varieties beauty and the fragrances, the chirping of birds and their colourful gaiety the animals world, education and sciences, ideology and religions of India, languages spoken and their zones etc. This shows how patriotic Khusro was to his motherland and had deep knowledge of it. He wrote another voluminious book in the period of Qutubuddin Mubarak Shah by name "Ejaze Khusravi", the book consisted of five volumes. Thus it reflected Amir Khusro’s ocean of knowledge and scholarship.
After Mubarak Shah, Ghyasuddin Tughlaq came to the throne. Amir Khusro wrote a historic Masnavi "Tughlaq Name" on him. Thus all Kings of their period, honoured Amir Khusro as the jewel of their crown. They felt proud of his writing. In total Amir Khusro served under Seven Sultans. He was also an astronomer and an astrologer. When Qutubuddin Mubarak Shah son was born, he prepared the horoscope of child where certain predictions, were made. This horoscope is included in the Masnavi "Saqiana".[9] In 1321 Mubarak Khilji (sometimes spelled "Mubarak Khalji") was murdered and Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq came to power.
Khusro started to write the Tughluqnama. Then in 1325 Sultan Muhammad bin Tughluq came to power.
On 3 April 1325 Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya died, and six months later so did Hazrat Amir Khusrow. Khusrow 's tomb is next to that of his master in the Nizamuddin Dargah of Delhi.[10]

Khusrow the royal poet[edit]


An illustrated manuscript of one of Amir Khusrau's poems.
Khusrow was a prolific classical poet associated with the royal courts of more than seven rulers of the Delhi Sultanate.[11] He is still loved and respected today in India, Pakistan and by lovers of Poetry and Sufi music throughout the world. With so many playful riddles, songs and legends attributed to him. Through his enormous literary output and the legendary folk personality, Khusrow represents one of the first (recorded) Indian personages with a true multi-cultural or pluralistic identity.To unite mankind through the power of Poetry, Music and Dance.
Urdu language and its development[edit]
Amir Khusrow was the author of a Khamsa which emulated that of the earlier poet of Persian epics Nizami Ganjavi. His work was considered to be one of the great classics of Persian poetry during the Timurid period in Transoxiana.
He wrote primarily in Persian and Hindustani. He also wrote a war ballad in Punjabi.[12] In addition, he spoke Arabic and Sanskrit.[7][13][14][15][16][17][18] His poetry is still sung today at Sufi shrines throughout Pakistan and India.
Amir Khusrow and the origins of the Sitar and the Tabla[edit]

Amir Khusro's genius as a musician speak volumes, for he is responsible for the invention of the tabla. The term tabla is derived from an Arabic word, tabl, which simply means "drum.",. Together with the invention of the sitar, the grand lute. Named after a Persian instrument called the setar (meaning "three strings"). The instrument appears to have descended from long-necked lutes taken to India from Central Asia. The first prototype instruments were invented during the Delhi Sultanate period of the 13th/14th centuries when the Persian patrons of music and poetry encouraged innovation in Indian art. The sitar flourished in the 16th and 17th centuries and arrived at its present form in the 18th century. Today it is the dominant instrument in Hindustani music. Both these instruments are the foundation of India's classical musical heritage.[19][20][21]
The development of the Tabla originated from the need to have a drum that could be played from the top in the sitting position to enable more complex rhythm structure's that were required for the new Indian Sufi vocal style of singing/chanting and Zikr. At the same time to complement the complex early Sitar melodies that Khusro was composing. The Tabla uses a "complex finger tip and hand percussive" technique played from the top, unlike the Pakhawaj and mridangam which mainly use the full palm and are sideways in motion and are more limited in terms of sound complexity.
Samples of Khusrow's poetry[edit]

Amir Khusrow,once said a famous couplet for Kashmir.
"Gar firdaus bar roo-e zameen ast,
Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o hameen ast "
This means,If there is a paradise on earth,It is this, it is this, it is this.[22][23][24]

Delhi Winters And Going To School


One thing that made me happy was the choice of my hotel at Chitli Qabar , a shrine of a Holy Saint at one end and further ahead the Jumma Masjid , a predominantly street shopping eating market area with quaint bylanes of character and ancestry.

And I shot randomly , with a Press Card round my neck.. and due to shortage of time could not move to other areas .. this was my last few hours in Delhi and once I returned from Dargah Nizamuddin I put my camera to sleep ..

And honestly without any bias or any hard feelings I am a Pucca Mumbaikar , Delhi ambiance Delhi air Delhi life is not to my liking at all.. I am a seaside man should say it all.. I am a garbage dog shitting men urinating shooting photographer ,, I love filth I love Mumbai..

I love my Delhi friends my Delhi family connections and my Delhi patron Mr Vipin Malik.. the most stylish dresser , sartorial toast of Delhi , , I met him through Mr Shatrughan Sinha several years back and have maintained the connection , I personally hand tailor his clothes .

His son Suraj Pratap is my Facebook friend.

I had no time to visit my relatives in Delhi.. but I met my nephew Adnan Abidi who took care of fragmented head after I had cut it at Kashmiri Gate , his healing touch did wonders to the poetry of my inner angst. Tying the tourniquet on the head is a Moharam art of holstic healing ,, very few know it, the bandage was so tightly applied by him , I had to use my dagger again to cut it between my chin and my neck a very thin gap.. and the top bandage just fell of like petals on a drying rose ..

Finally it was coming home and each of my grand daughter daughter lovingly touching it ..Dada Kama Laga Ya was enough to heal it permanently..

Liaqat Ali Sab From Karachi And Me At The Hotel


I met world famous scholar from Karachi Mr Liaqat Ali Sab born in Rampur and was close to Sir Abdul Kalam Azad he said , he has been to many cities including Islamic literature and poetry conference in Bosnia ,, I wish I could sit and chat with him some more but this was my second final day in Delhi I had to rush shoot Nizamuddin Aulia Dargah and soon pack for the station..my head wound had healed slight bleeding from some parts , because of my diabetic condition , and I must mention here I came to Delhi without any winter wear , I had none , just one cotton jacket and a waist coat to keep me warm..most of the day of Ashura I walked barefeet , and now back in Mumbai my bravado has got hit by a viral cold , congested chest , but I will recover speedily.

This is my last upload of Delhi.. a lot of street shots and the Dargah Nizamuddin.
