Why mehr-e-niimroz

mehr-e-niimroz (مھر نیمروز ) is a Persian phrase that can be translated into English as “The Noonday Sun”. Mehr = sun, niim = half, roz = day. Apart from the sheer beauty of the words and the image associated with them, this is also the title of the official history of the Mughal dynasty that Asadullah Khan “Ghalib” was commissioned to write by Bahadur Shah “Zafar”.
