Delhiwale: ‘I loved you more than everyone’ | Latest News Delhi

The gravestones are burning hot, this June afternoon. Strolling in a city graveyard and gazing at the inscriptions on graves is like browsing through a book of prose-poems. Each offering is brief but permeated with lasting sadness. Here is a sample of the very many engraved sentiments commemorating the Delhiwale who have become one with the earth at the Christian Cemetery on Prithviraj Road. Each body of inscribed lines is identified with the person it memorialises:
