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
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
