Aurangzib and the Decay of the Mughal Empire
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8175364351 / 9788175364356; Softcover; New; 
The book contains biography, the conquest and administration of one of the prominent Indian emperors like Aurangzib of the Mughal dynasty.<-p>Akbar was the third in the succession of his dynasty and the first in his genius for government. In that sense, Akbar was the true founder of the Indian Empire of the great Mughals. His realm embraced all the provinces of Hindustan including Afghanistan.<-p>Whereas Aurangzib`s life had been a vast failure, indeed, but he had failed grandly. He pitted his conscience against the world, and the world had triumphed over it. He had marked out a path of duty and had steadfastly pursued it, inspite of its utter impractibility. His glory is for himself alone. The triumph of character ennobled only himself. To his great empire his devoted zeal was an unmitigated curse. Akbar`s dream had failed of its fulfilment. The heroic bigotry of Aurangzib destroyed those bright hopes of tolerant wisdom.<-p>He kept all his sons away, lest they should do even as he had done to his own father. Alone he lived, and alone he had made ready to die. He had all the Puritan`s sense of sin and unworthiness and his morbid creed inspired a terrible dread of death.<-p>Every plan that he formed came to little good; every enterprise failed. The total destruction of the Mughal empire was due to the fact that Aurangzib could not force his soul to desert the colours of the faith.<-p>The book - Aurangzib and the Decay of the Mughal Empire - was originally written by Stanley Lane-Poole, M.A. and subsequently edited by William Wilson Hunter under the title of Rulers of India (Aurangzib).

Mediaeval India: Under Mohammedan Rule (AD 712-1764)
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8175363177 / 9788175363175; Softcover; New; 
The Mohammedan period of Indian history is an invasion of the Turks into the immemorial systems, rule and customs of Ancient India. The period ends when one of the last of these Muslim rulers, oppressed by of Hindu ascendency, placed himself under English protection and Modern India came into being. Ancient India was too deeply rooted in its traditions to wither even under the storm of the Muslim conquest. The old Indian life survived the shock of the new ideas and it outlived the Muslim period. But little altered in the modern Age of English domination. The history of the Mohammedan period is, therefore, necessarily more a chronicle of kings and courts and conquests than of organic or national growth. As a source it is invaluable, and the present book owes an immense debt of it; indeed, no modern historian of India can afford to neglect it. Printed Pages: 459 with 56 plates & 1 map. 107376

Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8175363525 / 9788175363526; Softcover; New; 
The book contains Biography, conquests and administration of prominent Indian Emperors like Babar of the Mughal dynasty.Babar was the first of the Mughal emperors of India.Babar us the link between Central Asia and India, between predatory hordes adn imnperial government, between Tamerlane and Akbar.Babar brought the energy of the Mongol. the courage and capacity of the Turk, to the listless Hindus and himself a soldier of fortune and no architect of empire, he yet laid the first stone of their splendid fabric which hsi grandson Akbar achieved.His permanent place in history rests upon his Indian conquest which opened the way for an imperial line, but his place in biography and in literature is determined rather by his daring adventures and preserving efforts in his ealier days, and by the delightful memoirs in which he related them.On December 26, 1530, he passed away in his beautiful garden palace in Agra-a man of only 48, a king of 36 years-but years crowded with events, with hardships.tumult, and strenous energy. The boy prince who had fought for his heritage long and indomitably with hordes of savage Mongols and Uzbeqs, and only relinqueshed the hope of his ancestral throne after a struggle of 20 years, had at last found the way to a great and nobler empire-whose splendour and ancient glory he had not yet learned to realise-but which he left, a magnificient heirloom, for his grandson Akbar to cherish and enrich.
