When I wandered the streets of the Walled City of Delhi, I read about the Haveli (home) of Zenat Mahal, favourite wife of the last Mughal Emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar.
He made a haveli for her, which was left to decay after the Mutiny of 1857. The British detested her.
Today, it has been given over to a girl’s school, and has been occupied by the local shopkeepers, and residents. These vessels were left by someone who possibly wants to make some street food later.
The Kitchen, indeed, of the Last Queen of The Mughal Empire.
