(Dr. Rameshwar Dayal) It was before independence. There was a famous confectionery shop in Lahore. Its desi ghee sweet will enchant the whole city. The specialty of the confectioner was that he invented new sweets every year. The townspeople kept curious about these sweets wrapped in desi ghee and at every festival Lala would ask, will there be any new sweets this time. Lalaji laughed and said come two days before the festival and take the sweets. Everything goes well
Saliva sweets were spreading all over the city, but suddenly the announcement of partition came. Bitterness begins to spread in the atmosphere instead of sweetness. Lalaji collected some things and moved to Delhi. He did nothing but confectionery. Thought, Delhiites should be given a taste of Lahore. The work has just been completed and this famous shop in Desi Ghir is still in its infancy. Even after so many changes, nothing has changed. That is the tradition of feeding Punjabi Puri-Desi Ghee-Vegetables to the customers every morning.

Now after so much curiosity will be asked where is this confectionery shop? We say. If you reach Paharganj Chowk, you will turn towards Baratuti Sadar, then on the left you will see a board of ‘Madanlal Halwai’ after Sadar Police Station.
