Description
Back of the Book

The birth of a prince in medieval India was usually followed by grand celebrations. Camped out in the wilderness when the news of Akbar's safe delivery reached him, Humayun could only enjoy a quiet moment of thanksgiving. He broke a musk pod and, as the fragrance wafted all over the camp, the new father hoped his son's fame would similary spread across the world.

 

Akbar-—emperor, warrior, statesman and thinker—is Acknowledged as one of the most charismatic personalities in Indian history. Crowned the king of Hindustan at the age of thirteen, his empire expanded to include the farthest corners of the country. Yet he was not just a conqueror. A humanist, Akbar's deep interest in literature, architecture, art, and his inclusive vision of religions at a time when such thoughts were not in fashion, set him down as one of history's most remarkable men.

In this story of his life, as exciting and thrilling as any adventure tale, the author describes Akbar's rough, difficult childhood spent on the run: his consolidation of the empire through war and diplomacy; the myriad interesting and entertaining people who made up his court; the strong women of the Mughal household; and, finally, the intriguing circumstances under which the crown passed on to his son, Jehangir. Accompanied by many interesting fact about the mughal empire and the world in the sixteenth century, this book is fascinating introduction to the life and times of an emperor who still rules our imagination.

AKBAR

Kavitha Mandana grew up in parts of the Niligiri hills where telephones and TV did not exist. After an idyllic and undisciplined schooling in Ooty, and a degree in English Literature from Coimbatore, she got into a fairly unliterary career as an advertising copywriter in Bangalore. It took a chaotic six years working with print, TV and radio commercials for her to discover she liked writing and illustrating for kids. She writes regularly in the children's supplement of the Deccan Herald. Her work has also appeared in Chatterbox and Toot magazines. Tenali Raman (Puffin) was her first historical novel for kids.
