Maasir-I-Alamgiri (A History of the Emperor Aurangzib - 'Alamgir (Reign 1658-1707 AD) of Saqi Must'ad Khan)
Description
About the Book:

Chronicles of Mughal emperors are part biography and part official history. Here in the present work the Emperor is presented as a super humanbeing and wholesome adulation hide the human side of his personality. The official history was compiled in a chronological order from the court circulars and secret correspondence between the court and the news-writers, posted at all important places in the empire.

The writing of the present Maasir-I-Alamgiri was started by Mirza Muhammad Kazim, under the title of 'Alamgir-namah. But after the author had completed the history of the first decade, he was forbidden to continue it further by the Emperor himself. The reason for this prohibition as given by Saqi Must'ad Khan, was the financial crisis.

Then after the death of the Emperor (in 1707), I'nayetullah Khan Kashmiri Emperor's last secretary and favourite desciple, initiated Saqi Must'ad Khan to complete the history of Emperor. The work was completed in 1710, under the title of Maasir-I-Alamgiri.

In the present translation, the translator, Jadunath Sarkar, an eminent historian, has slightly condensed the matter. As the original work was written under the king and the courtly patrons, much of the matter goes to flattery and praise. But Albeit no important detail is left out.

Historians and students of the Moghal period and Indian History will find it highly fascinating and readable. Here they will witness how the emperor toiled hard day and night with the following coupbet constantly echoing in his mind.

In a twinkle, in a minute, in a breath, The condition of the world changes.

Testimonials
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.
