He intricate pietra dura inlay work on the Taj Mahal and the ornate sandstone archways of Fatehpur Sikri speak of a bygone era- the Mughal Empire. This work of non-fiction chronicles and analyses some of the most riveting episodes from the lives of the first five Mughal emperors, tracing their journey from Fergana to Delhi.
Unlike the British, the Mughals blended impressively with the Indian culture and way of life, thus spawning a vibrant Indo-Persian culture, exquisitely displayed through their luscious cuisine, regal attires, extensive literature, enchanting music and architectural marvels. The book talks about all such cultural aspects, every ruler’s innovations and the fruitful Indo-Persian interaction. It celebrates India as the homeland of the Koh-i-Noor and a supreme medieval economic power whose goods dominated the European markets. So mount your royal elephant and set out on an intriguing excursion to unveil ‘A Royal Legacy!’
