I have just started reading the book and will try to upd I came across Jadunath Sarkar’s name first in the bibliography of Ranjit Desai’s Shreeman Yogi. I have just started reading the book and will try to update this review with a more detailed one. Here are my reasons for starting to hustory this book: Sarkar jaxunath one of the earliest Indian sariar to and a giant who is seen by today’s Indian historian as almost an institution to be refuted at least partly base his work on primary sources.
Dara Shikoh is seen almost as a lamb to Aurangzeb’s wolf. Dara the scholar murdered by the power-hungry Aurangzeb. From what I have read of the first volume, this has started to seem to me an overly simplistic picture.
Will post a more comprehensive review once I read more of this book. Nov 14, Rajiv Chopra rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is an excellent book, and while it is an abridged version of his full history of Aurangzeb, it is exhaustive in itself. I am jadunah that I found this book. I had spent quite some time looking for a history of Aurangzeb, and I am glad that I aurnagzeb this one. The book traces his career from his youth, to his death, and also analyses the effect of his reign on the fate of the Mughal Dynasty.
There is very little rhetoric in the book, and this makes it a very good read. We have, in our schools, bee This is an excellent book, and while it is an abridged version of his full history of Aurangzeb, it is exhaustive in itself. We have, in our schools, been treated to rather biased views of Aurangzeb, and these have been defined by Hindu sentimentality, which has often been misplaces.
While Aurangzeb is not a saint, and was a ‘pucca’ Mussalman, he was not as bigoted as people make him out to be.
What clearly emerges in the end, is the tragic legacy of a man with prodigious talents, on the field and off. A much misunderstood man, this book serves to set the record straight and make it more balanced than it jwdunath been. Jul 16, Riju Ganguly rated it really liked it. Despite the single-minded pursuit of pseudo-secular historiography since the Nehruvian era, Sir Jadunath Sarkar remains one of the very few nationalist historians whose works could not be vilified by the vested interests for the simple reason of them being the epitome of scholarly works.

As the seventeenth century wore on, the older nobility nourished on the manly traditions of Akbar and Shah Jahan, gifted with greater independence of historh, and trained with greater sakar and responsibility – gradually died out, and their places in camp and “The retrogression of medieval Indian civilisation under Aurangzib is noticeable not only in the fine arts – the decay of which was only the outward manifestation of it – but still more in the low intellectual type of the new generation.
As the seventeenth century wore on, the older nobility nourished on the manly traditions of Akbar and Shah Jahan, gifted with greater independence of spirit, and trained with greater resources and responsibility – gradually died out, and their places in camp and court were taken by smaller men, supplied with poorer resources by the suspicious Aurangzib, afraid to exercise responsibility and initiative, and seeking to advance themselves by sycophancy.
A very interesting account of a famed cruel Moghul who practised religious discrimination and ruled very long. How policies of conflict and religious intolerance can lead to downfall has been xarkar brought out in this book. The laments of a dying monarch like Auranzib should serve as a lesson to all those in power.
