Event Details

Date: April 13, 2019

DBF will transport you to William Dalrymple’s City of Djinns, the shadowy and mysterious world of Sufis, Fakirs and unknown saints, the place where belief and spirituality challenge the limits of logical explanations, a place which is the last refuge for those who have given up on usual avenues of religious practice. Where devotees come and write letters to the Djinns of Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, stick coins to the walls of the mosque, offer milk, sweets, fruits and even meats to the Djinns, all with the single objective of appeasing the ‘unhappy spirits’ and getting a long-cherished wish fulfilled! This Fort besides which once flowed the Yamuna River was the 5th city of Delhi, founded & built by Sultan Ferozshah Tughlaq in the latter half of 14th century AD, and which today lies forgotten adjacent to the famous Ferozshah Kotla Cricket Stadium.
