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.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
