Meticulously researched, and a balanced view, without denying how ruthless and cruel he was at times, Audrey Truschke has also brought to light, (with references, and cited sources), facts about how fair minded, law abiding, and just to a fault, Aurangazeb was, how arts and advice that was previously only available to the royalty, started to find patronage amongst all nobles, and also how he had far more Hindus amongst the Mughal nobles and advisers than any of his so-called moderate ancestors. In fact I realised how much we suffer from an over glorification of Dara Shukhoh and Shivaji, and a villification of Aurangazeb, in the way history has been taught to us.
The Mughal head Aurangzeb Alamgir is a standout amongst the most despised men in Indian history. Generally scolded as a religious fan who looked to savagely persecute Hindus, he is even rebuked by some to set into movement clashes that would bring about the production of a different Muslim state in South Asia. In her exuberant review of his life and impact, Audrey Truschke offers a reasonable peered toward point of view on people in general open deliberation over Aurangzeb and puts forth the defense for why his regularly insulted heritage should be reassessed. Aurangzeb was seemingly the most effective and wealthiest leader of his day.
