Event Description : WALK: Delhi By Foot presents Mohe Rang De Basanti O' Nizam Piya | Celebrating Sufi Basant

"Mohey Rang De Basanti, O Rey Piya Nizamuddin Auliya!"

"फूल रही सरसों सकल बन, फूल रही सरसों सकल बन,
अम्बवा फूटे, टेसू फूले, कोयल बोले डार-डार, 
और गोरी करत सिंगार, 
​निजामुदीन के दरवज़्ज़े पर, मलनियाँ गेंदवा ले आईं कर सों, 
फूल रही सरसों सकल बन।"​
(The wild-fields are lush with yellow mustard blooms,
Mango buds open and the Flame of the Forest blooms orange,
Each branch echoes with the Koel’s melodies,
As the lovely maidens don their make-up,
And the gardener-women bring Marigolds to the doors of Nizamuddin, 
The wild-fields are lush with yellow mustard blooms)

7 centuries ago, these words inter-woven with soulful music, sung by Khwaja Amir Khusrau and his band of 'Qawwal Bachchas' (Qawwali Singers) rang out to celebrate the onset of Spring and thus began a beautiful tradition world-over at 'Chishti Dargahs',....a true testimony to the 'Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb' of India..."Sufi Basant" is a 700+ years old legacy of Sufiyana Celebrations coinciding with 'Basant Panchami' (Hindu festival of Spring) which comes alive with exhilaration as the Qawwal Bachchas singing with high spirits, take you to another level of consciousness!!! 

On the auspicious occasion of  'Sufi Basant' this year, DBF in association with the 'Dargah Nizamuddin Aulia Trust' brings to you this unique 'Rasa' of our lovely city....delving deep into this living tradition that celebrates life, nature's bounty and celebrates the universal brotherhood of communities irrespective of religion....

Join us inside the holy courtyard of Dargah-e-Nizamuddin...immerse yourself in this only kind of a colourful celebration of spring with all things 'Basanti' (Yellow)...mustard, marigold and music....the lilting tunes of Amir Khusrau’s evergreen Qawwalis/Verses being sung in honour of 'The Almighty' and his 'Pir' (Master) Mehboob-e-Ilaahi Hazrat Sheikh Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya.....and hear many tales of their eternal love and devotion!!
