Product description

Review

This book is refreshingly good as it deals with the most controversial and misunderstood Mughal emperor without any bias. Must read! --By Gopalan on 14 May 2017

Great book to know about facts of that period and brought into light many events that colonial rulers had hidden to implement divide and rule policy. Many negative ratings are really biased and I think they not read the book which is very much secular --By BAIG MOHIDDIN on 14 May 2017

Author had did great job in finding hidden content. Really enjoyed every page of this book. Definitely it won't disappoint. --By Amazon Customer on 14 May 2017

Though it it not the complete biography of Aurangzeb and just separates facts from fiction as short and crisp as possible (for his full history I would recommend History of Aurangzeb by Jadunath Sarkar). Also she has omitted out some of the aspects of his regime and edited out others where it didn't suited her larger than life description of the king. But still I would recommend this book to modern Indians who are interested to get to know about the tragic anti-hero of India, man who was never at ease, 6th Mughal Emperor Alamgir Aurangzeb!

An objective read which makes you want to find out more about a name that has massive political connotations. So many interesting facts and anecdotes about our own history we should know. Some of it probably should be in our textbooks, given its contemporary relevance.

Some more details on certain incidents is what I was looking for, going by reviews.
