The present work continues to remain as important and as popular as it was in 1671, when its English edition was published. John Dryden, the famous poet and dramatist, drew his inspiration from his last and perfect tragedy Aurang-zebe from the same book. Francois Bernier, being a physician, had an unlimited access. In Mughal India, he could go anywhere from South to North. This freedom of movement combined with his powers of observation adds authority to his narrative. His account of various events during Mughal regime is interesting, because it not only deals with Shah Jahan and his children,... View more info
