The first painting from my painting series named Majnun featuring doves on the rooftops of Old Delhi. Doves are used as a poetic device to symbolize mourning and loss in ancient Ummayad Arabic poetry (Ghazals). They are said to be perpetually mourning the loss of a young dove chick named Al-Hadil who perished after leaving Noah's ark.
" O doves of Al-Liwa, turn back again!" I sadly long to hear your voices" So they turned back, but when they did I nearly died and I almost revealed my hidden feelings
- excerpt from an Umayyad Ghazal to be used as a song text
