Any photo of the Red Fort leaves you, of course, enraged at how little of the gigantic — must have been gorgeous — complex is left…insane, vengeful destruction by the terrified Brits after 1857 revolution.  See, of course William Dalrymple‘s  The Last Mughal and the many parts of which he generously let me reproduce in this blog when I first kicked it off.  Warning: it’s infuriating.
