His highness’ wardrobe stretched
In  old sky infinitely and end to end
For  seven hundred coats  to hang.

Now a shirt hangs there to pick up
For evening party with white faces
But now faces are white including.

There were seven hundred dresses.
But body seems somehow missing.
Here are shirts and no body in them.

(The erstwhile Hyderabad ruler’s  wardrobe was 167 feet long and could accommodate 700 dresses end to end, two for each day of the year)
