ABOUT THE WALK
Indian history is replete with stories of Mughal Emperors who rules Old Delhi. However, very little is known about the women of the Mughal period and how they influenced history. We know of stories in which queens, princesses and concubines were relegated to the zenanas (ladies’ quarters) of the palace. Those who have read and researched on life behind the scenes will tell you that they had and held on to their space, despite difficult odds. DBF brings you tales of some women who played an important role in creating many stories of dissent, a glimpse into their challenges and achievements, their lives and loves; and how they created alternative niches for themselves - niches that they designed, ruled and held on to.
