Dara Shikuh : Life and Works
Dara Shikuh : Life and Works
Description
About the Book:

Indian tradition remembers Dara Shikuh not so much as an emperor's son, but as a mystic philosopher. The great dream of his life a - dream shattered by his untimely death - was the brotherhood of all faiths and the unity of mankind. After him the vision of unity was lost in the atmosphere of hatred and rivalry created by the warring sects and religious schools, and even today we are living in the age of religious disintegration.

About the Author:

Bikrama Jit Hasrat (b. 8 August, 1915) was educated at Lahore, Calcutta, and Oxford Universities. From 1938 to 1946 he has served as Nizam lecture at Visva-Bharati, Santiniketan; thereafter, he joined the Punjab Education Department working as professor of history/Principal in P.E.S. (I). In between, he had been a British Council Scholar at Oxford (1955-57), a Colombo plan professor of history at Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu (Nepal), a visiting fellow of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Simla, and a visiting professor at the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

He is also considered as an authority on the political and socio-economic history of the Himalayan region.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
