The Feast of Roses - A Novel on Nur Jahan
The Feast of Roses - A Novel on Nur Jahan
Description
Back of the Book

In this lush and romantic sequel to the twentieth wife, Mehrunnisa, the first woman Jahangir marries for love, is now empress Nur Jahan. As a mark of his devotion he transfers his powers of sovereignty to her. But she has a for midable rival in the imp0rial harem, Empress Jagat Gosini, who has plotted against her from the moment she entered the emperor's life. Beyond the harem walls, she battles powerful ministers who won't allow a mere woman to have a say in the outside world.

Defying all established norms of womanhood in seventeenth –century India, Mehrunnisa combats her rivals by forming a junta of sorts with the three men she can rely on: her father, her brother and jahangir's son, Prince khurram. She demonstrates great strength of character and cunning to get what she wants, sometimes at great personal cost, even almost losing her daughter's love. But she never loses the love of the man who bestows this po9wer upon her: Emperor Jahangir.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
