First Run After Lockdown | 09407 ADI-BSB Special & 09580 DEE-RJT Special (Both Meet at Palam) click here

Two trains were on their maiden run after remaining in abeyance for more than a year, since last year's lockdown to be precise. Coincidentally, both of them met at Palam.

Ahmedabad - Varanasi Weekly Special with VTA WDM-3D 11482 at the helm approached Palam at a crawling pace and eventually had to halt on the mainline due to non-availability of platform at Delhi Cantt. stn, as the PFs were covered by JP-DEE Special, Ala Hazrat Special and DEE-RJT Special.

After a while, 09580 Delhi Sarai Rohilla - Rajkot SF Special hauled by BGKT WDG-4 12579 came furiously from the other end and skipped Palam in just a few seconds. Soon after, 09407 ADI-BSB got a clearance and it departed from Palam toward DEC.

Brand New Locomotive Livery | TKD WDP-4B 40003 "DHILLIKA" (Medieval Name of Delhi City) click here


Some historical background of the name "DHILLIKA"

Anangpal Tomar founded Delhi in 1052. A VS 1383 inscription in Delhi Museum confirms the founding of Delhi by the Tomars:

देशोऽस्ति हरियानाख्यो पॄथिव्यां स्वर्गसन्निभः |
ढिल्लिकाख्या पुरी तत्र तोमरैरस्ति निर्मिता ||
Translation: In a country called Haryana, which is equivalent to heaven on earth, Tomars built a city called Dhillika.

An inscription on the iron pillar also names the founder of Delhi as Anangpal Tomar. Alexander Cunningham read the inscription as follows:

"Samvat Dihali 1109 Ang Pāl bahi"
Translation: In Samvat 1109 [1052 CE], [Anang] Pāl peopled Dilli.

The name Delhi is said to be derived from the word 'Dhillika'. Pasanaha Chariu of Vibudh Shridhar (VS 1189–1230) an Apabhramsha writer, provides the first reference to the legend of the origin of the name Dhilli for Delhi.

हरियाणए देसे असंखगाम, गामियण जणि अणवरथ काम|
परचक्क विहट्टणु सिरिसंघट्टणु, जो सुरव इणा परिगणियं|
रिउ रुहिरावट्टणु बिउलु पवट्टणु, ढिल्ली नामेण जि भणियं|
Translation: There are countless villages in Haryana country. The villagers there work hard. They don't accept domination of others, and are experts in making the blood of their enemies flow. Indra himself praises this country. The capital of this country is Dhilli.


When Lord Hardings as Viceroy presided over the building of New Delhi on RaisinaHill he went through several names and eventually decided on Delhi. For Mirza Ghalib it was Dilli, that which allures the heart. But he lived at a time when there was no name-changing spree.

According to the book Delhi and Its Neighbourhood, brought out by the Archaeological Survey of India, historian Y.D. Sharma says, “The first medieval city of Delhi founded by the Tomars was called Dhilli or Dhillika, although among the known records the name Dhillika occurs for the first time in the inscription of 1170 from Bijolia, District Udaipur, which mentions the capture of Delhi by the Chahamanas. The Palam Baolli inscription of 1276 written in the time of Balban calls it Dhilli and the country in which it lies as Hariyanaka. But an inscription of the reign of Mohd Thuglak (1328) refers to the city as Dhillika… It is also called Dhilli, Dihli and Dhilli in old records, some of which refer to it as Dehali, meaning threshold of the country, though other prefer Dilli, the heart of Hindustan.”
