Jamali-Kamali: A Tale of Passion in Mughal India

Just off busy Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road in Delhi, the 16th century Sufi court poet Jamali is buried in a tomb next to Kamali, of whom the printed matter says "identity unknown", but who helpful guides, say was the poet's lover. Little about them is known. According to Delhi's oral tradition, Jamali and Kamali were homosexual lovers. Others believe Kamali was Jamali's wife and some others that "Kamali" was Jamali's nom de plume. Over the reigns of Sikandar Lodi, Babur and Humayun, Jamali's travels take him to distant lands like Syria, Iran, Ceylon, Mecca and Spain separating the lovers for long periods of time. The verse moves from Jamali's longing to Kamali's lament, re-creating the interplay between their passionate hearts. About the Author Karen Chase lives in western Massachusetts.
