Beggars at Nizamuddin Dargah - Delhi Photo Gallery

"ALLAH KE naam pe de do, Maula ke naam pe de do, Babu roti khila do... ." Beseeching voices welcome visitors to Nizamuddin Dargah every day.

Many hotels in the locality thrive because of them. Around the dargah people shout, "Gharibon ko khana khilao panch rupaye mein, aiya sahab greebon ko khana kilaiye sat rupaye mein aur dus rupaye mein!" The devotees, filled with piety, buy tokens of Rs.5, 7 and 10 from the shouting men and get food to feed the gang of beggars!
