Event Description : BOOK LAUNCH & DISCUSSION "Sangin Beg: Sair-ul-Manazil"

Release and discussion on Sair ul Manazil written in the 1820s.  The original was written in Persian by a person known as Sangin Beg. Translation into English by the late Nausheen Jaffery and edited and introduced by Swapna Liddle

Speakers: Professor Amar Farooqui; Shri Sohail Hashmi; Dr. Swapna Liddle and others
Moderator: Prof. Azizuddin Husain , Jamia Millia Islamia

The book is the first attempt to systematically list the monuments of the city of Delhi. Apart from public buildings like mosques, temples, shrines and tombs, it lists wells, gardens, houses, shops and stray graves. This was in itself a formidable task, and one that might easily have resulted in a very dry and tedious document. The author, however, considerably enlivens it by a description of the various localities of the city, of the people who lived and worked there in his time, social activities and fairs, and historical anecdotes connected with places and people.
