About the Author
Zahir Dehlvi (1835-1911) was an official in the Mughal court of Bahadur Shah Zafar and also an accomplished poet. He was witness to a crucial moment in history and his memoir remains the most richly detailed surviving account of the course of the 1857 Revolt and its bitter consequences. Forced to flee Delhi in the aftermath of the Revolt, his later life was full of tribulation. He eventually settled in Hyderabad where he died.
Rana Safvi is a renowned writer, scholar and translator. She is the author of Tales from the Quran and Hadith and Where Stones Speak: Historical Trails in Mehrauli, the First City of Delhi. She has also translated both the editions of Asar us Sanadeed, the seminal work on Delhi’s monuments, written by Sir Syed Ahmed. She runs the popular blog ‘Hazrat e Dilli’ on her site ranasafvi.com and is passionate about documenting India’s syncretic culture through her writings.

It shows the plight of the people after the Mutiny was suppressed in Delhi and how the local Mughal Elite behaved and what they thought of during the mutiny.
Also, one thing to notice is how these palace employees of Zafar managed to get a job in various other courts for the talent they possessed. Clearly the best of them were uprooted from Delhi.
Also, we get a glimpse of the atrocities committed by both sides specially the British after they took over the city. Metcalfe, just went about shooting anybody.
This book gives an insight into the life of people who lived around 150 years ago and the customs that were followed then.
It's a wonderful book, and the best of it is the roman script of the original poem, it makes it so relatable.
Still recommend the book, so that people can know reality of wars, how things change during course of war.
