When sufi music and melody come together in a Mughal monument, the fragrance that emanates is sheer magic.

By Bushra Alvi: The newly constructed garden amphitheatre at the Government Sunder Nursery, adjacent to Humayun’s Tomb, was the venue for some of the concerts and recitals that took place in New Delhi last week. The amphitheatre which was inaugurated by Mr Ashok Khurana, Director General (CPWD), was the setting for a rock concert and ghazal recital on Wednesday and Thursday. It was the perfect evening – balmy weather, candlelights, and a rapt audience in the environs of a freshly restored monument of the Mughal era, the Sunderwala Burj, which lit up, perfectly complemented the ambiance.
