When I went to the Chunar Fort, approximately 70 km from Benares, I went down this dungeon.
I was told that the Mughal Emperor, Humayun, was imprisoned here by Sher Shah Suri. Sher Shah Suri was a brilliant king and military strategist. He founded the short lived Suri Dynasty before Humayun took it back.
It seems that Humayun’s food would be lowered through this hole. I have no idea how he escaped, but he did.
I wonder if, when he looked up at the sky through this sky-hole, he wondered if this is what freedom looked like.
What does freedom look like?
