In this chapter, the author narrates her travel to Lucknow, where she knew a couple of Begams: Professor Mujeeb's wife and his sister Shakira. She stayed at a house called ‘Dali-Bag’ (Dolly's Garden), which belonged to Mujeeb's brother and where three generations lived. The master of the house was Mr Wasim, Mujeeb's eldest brother. Begam Wasim belongs to the second generation, whose brothers include Haliq Zaman and Dr Salim Zaman, Shakira's husband. The author also talks about a famous public figure of Lucknow, Sheikh Mushir Hosain Kidwai of Gadia. The Sheikh was an active member of the Khilafat movement in India, in addition to other political movements. When Mahatma Gandhi stopped the Khilafat movement, Sheikh Mushir Kidwai condemned him. The Sheikh was a co-founder, along with Hasrat Mohani, of the All-Indian Non-Communal Independent Party. He is also strongly inclined to socialism derived from Islam.
