TWO STUDIES IN EARLY MUGHAL HISTORY
TWO STUDIES IN EARLY MUGHAL HISTORY
Description
From the Jacket:

This book is a significant contribution to the growing volume of literature on the Great Mughals in India. It traces the Timurid backdrop- political, culture and traditional- from which Babur, the founder of the dynasty, had sprung. The provenance of some of the state measuresn innovations and practices subsequently introduced by the Great Mughals in the land of their adoption have been highlighted. The Jagirdari system, some of the court etiquettes such as Kurnish, architectural patterns, garden designs, deep academic interest, cultivation of fine arts, and urbanism were practices rooted in Babur's central Asian legacy and were revived in the new environment by his successors. Thus the amalgam of cultural synthesis that came into focus about half a century later was greatly enriched by the advent of Babur in India.

This study also briefly brings out the malaise to which Hindustan, after the death of Sultan Firoz Shah, had sunk. The succeeding Sultans were weak and quite often incapable of arresting the growth and proliferation of centrifugal tendencies which had eclipsed the power of Delhi. Babur with one stroke had restored Central authority and Integrated territories from Kabul to Patna under a vigorous, humane and sophisticated rule

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
