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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
