Mufti Sadruddin 'Aazurda'

Surviving Poetic work of 'Aazurda':

Mufti Sadruddin 'Aazurda' was a close friend of Ghalib and a very well respected poet, judge and citizen of society. Unfortunately, all of his poetry was destroyed in the riots and destruction of the time -- and the above is the only known collection of his poetry compiled from various tazkirahs.

The scan above is taken from the book:
Mufti Sadru'd-Din Azurda by A'bdur Rahman Parwaz Aslahi (New Delhi: Maktaba Jamia 1977) [ ]
