In this weary Temple land of the world,
Safe from the whirlwind of Time,
Benaras is forever Spring.

And the splash of twilight is the crimson mark
of Kashi's dust on heaven's brow.
The Kaaba of Hind;
This conch blowers dell;
Its icons and idols are made of the Light,
That once flashed on Mount Sinai.

-Chiragh e-Dair, The Light of the World
Mirza Ghalib
