Dilliwala by heart : Sikander Mirza Changezi

Sharing is caring!

“मुझ में दिल्ली है और दिल्ली में मैं।”

Changezi Sahaab’s outlook towards Dilli and life too, justifies the above phrase completely. He is a 55 yrs old humble man whose entire life has always revolved in and around his beloved Dilli. The look and charm in his eyes remind us of a child. He somehow always manages to make people smile with his cheerfulness whenever he finds something really funny. An epitome of wisdom, he stands as one of the most splendid examples of Dilliwaalas by heart. Changezi Saahab said, ” हम लोग यहां शाहजहां के समय पर आए थे, और तब से यहि के होकर रह गए। “
On insisting, he recited to us a rhythmic poetic piece of the places he has visited, in just one go. He is such a positive and energetic person that he, to a great extent transfers his positivity and energy to everybody around him. He has been in his Dilli-6 since his birth and he absolutely has no plans of leaving it, ever!

About Tanu Dabral

Hailing from Delhi, but the roots are Pahadi. By degree, I am pursuing Bachelors in Arts , political science. I keep a deep interest in literature and historical places, and what best can suit your passion when you live in the city which has experienced everything from history to war.

Purani Dilli has always been my happy place, a place where everything seems beautiful. A place which I cant help but adore . The life of Old Delhi will force you to come back to this place again and again. It's a place where Ghalib's presence can still be felt in every गली-मोहल्ला, in every smell you inhale, in every step you take, in every abandoned haveli you see. One just can't get enough of this place.

THE Pakki Dilli Waali blog, PDW with love, is an expression of my alter-ego which indulges in the everyday life of Delhi metros and culture feast.

This blog is straight from the heart of Delhi vali Nari. I am born and brought up in Delhi . I have seen Delhi change over the years. So, here I am sharing my experience and helping people to explore Delhi.
