‘Mughal Romance' is Mughal history fictionalised. The book is die formidable collection of erotica
which in itself is a great revelation. This erotically appealing love treatise is replete with unnerving,
and at the same time, entertaining stories which will leave you enraptured and enthralled. It is like a
multicoloured tapestry woven thick with liasions of emperors, princes, queens, princesses and
commoners alike, based on the accounts of the contemporary historians, chroniclers and travellers. It
is strewn with erotic verses, lyrics, couplers, and Persian and Sanskrit odes, which serves as a
golden thread interfacing the tapestry. The author takes you on a filght to the ethereal regions of
romantic escapades, torrid affairs, and lascivious frolics of the sultans of Malwa. The book portrays,
in graphic details, the sensual peccadilloes of the bored, restless shrinking violets’ - the Mughal
princesses. History is a long and tedious task of recording the toll of human life and the utter
devastations wreaked by the sword and the bullet — but this treatise, though in the form of fiction,
vividly and fascinatingly records the ruins and havocs left in their wake by love affairs, court intrigues,
envies, jealousies, terrible vengeance, etc. A wholly abosorbing account of incidents and anecdotes
which will quicken the reader’s heartbeats and leave him spellbound.
