Akbar
Akbar
Description
Akbar was the son of Humayun and Hamida Begum. His father was a sunni, while his mother was a Shia. These were rival Muslim sects but Akbar seemed to learn towards the Shia doctrine. This made things difficult, for his court had a large number of Sunnis. Akbar's problem was one that exists even today - that of uniting all creeds and races. He wanted to bring into the mainstream not only the Muslim sects but also the Rajputs and other Hindus. His reforms, which were meant to help all sections, included the abolition of sati, child marriage and jizya (a tax imposed on Hindus but not on Muslims). Anyone with talent in any field (including music and painting) was welcome in Akbar's court. Tansen, Baz Bahadur and Birbal were associated with the Mughal court. Rajput princes, who felt attracted to his personality and ideals, worked loyally for him as generals and ministers. Among these were Man Singh, Bhagwandas and Todar Mall. Akbar traced his lineage to the great Timur and Chingiz Khan of Turkish and Mongol descent. By his marriage to the Rajput princess of Amber (who was later to become the mother of the future emperor, Jahangir) he sealed his links with Hindustan. After Akbar's victory at the second Battle of Panipat, there was never again the need to return to Kabul and the mountain regions of his ancestors.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
