Summary: A migrant from eastern UP living in Faridabad, Haryana, talks about her visits to Sufi shrines.
I live in Faridabad, Lakkadpur. I visit dargahs (Sufi shrines). We visit the dargah for peace, we sit there and make prayers. Thats why we go to a dargah. I go to Nizamuddin Aulia baba's shrine, Mehrauli baba's shrine, and occasionally to the Matka saheb's dargah.
