Charminar (Nostalgia series) 

“Monuments are for the living, not the dead.” 

- Frank Wedekind 

  

The city of Hyderabad endures for centuries around its most prominent monument called Charminar standing right at the heart of the city. During the course of time, the monument has become the most celebrated epitome of the city. Charminar literally means four towers (char- four, minar- tower) is a mosque built during the reign of Sultan Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah of Qutb Shahi dynasty in 1591 to ward off the recurring plague. The Islamic architecture has four arches which face the four streets converging to the confluence of the monument. 

Raja Deen Dayal, the foremost photographer of the 19th century India captured marvellous glimpses of Hyderabad monuments including Charminar. The picturesque composition in nostalgic sepia tone evokes the reminiscence of a prevailing city.   

 

Nostalgia: Bombay  

What can be more nostalgic than sipping your coffee from a cup that bears an old image of Bombay? This set of three coffee mugs is imprinted with sepia-toned pictures of Victoria terminus, Rajabai clock tower, and Apollo Bunder. The old images remind about the architectural splendour of the city during the colonial period. 

Moreover, you can use the brown box made of an eco-friendly material for other purposes. The austere-looking but modishly designed box, consisting of three spacious compartments, offers you an ideal space for storage of your bangles, jewellery, stationery items and many other things.  

 

Nostalgia: Delhi 

Delhi can undoubtedly be called ‘the city of monuments’ with its numerous architectural marvels. The vintage photographs of Delhi Durbar, Kashmere Gate and Humayun’s tomb are reminiscence of Islamic architectures of enthralling grandeur. And when they come on your favourite coffee mug you just can’t stop being nostalgic.

Nostalgia: Kolkata 

For Kolkata folks, no intellectual sharing ever touches the height of its cerebral status without a cup of smoky, hot tea or coffee. And a coffee mug with old Calcutta (now Kolkata) photographs can only add to their nostalgia quotient. The set of three coffee mugs with the images of Esplanade, Prinsep Ghat, and River Hoogly, will certainly evoke the memory of colonial Calcutta, the city once happened to be the capital of British India.
