Abdul-Qadir Baydel Dehlavi was
an Erlaas Turk born in central Asia around 1600s and moved to live and
died in Azimabad India. He was known as one of the Indian poets of
‘mirror’ who choose a different imagery for each verse and the imagery
must come from ordinary surrounding objects. He was living under the
stagnant Safavi Empire and was amongst a collective of Farsi poets who
migrated to India to learn and practice the Mirror style.
