This play is based on  DILLI  KA YAADGAR  MUSHAIRA. by FARHATULLAH  BAIG. The Mushaira which forms the basis of this heartwarming play was the last of its kind in the Mughal Court. The court had a tradition of hosting an annual Mushaira at the Red Fort. In 1857 when the law and order failed in the city of Delhi, it was evident that the Mushaira would be canceled. But there was one person named Maulvi Karimuddin who went from pillar to post to organise this Mushaira. The custom was to place a bowl with a candle or flame in front of the poet whose turn it was to recite. Aakhri Shama is of historical significance too. As the custom of the” Shama”, it was the last such symposium held under the direct patronage of the Royal Palace.
