This collection is an ode to the Last Nawab!! This water like fluid Taant fabric and poetry like etched Chikankaari embroidery on it talks about a Tale of Two Cities...a lament that flows from the banks of Gomati River to the banks of Hooghly. Nawab Wajid Ali Shah was held in custody in Matia Burj of Kolkata where he penned these immortal lines.
The poetic regent imagined himself to be a daughter who is in her "sasural" and missing her "baabul" (parent), and the culture of the new home is taking over her slowly; she is ready to embrace it, but the part of her that was her being for years, left behind with her parents, is slowly vanishing...end of an era!! This one line captures that lament.
