About Me

In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate! (Persian translation: Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Rahim)

Hey there! Welcome to my blog www.notesonindianhistory.com, is a blog on medieval Indian history.

It is interesting to read the history of India, especially, the period which starts from the Indus Valley civilization to the Indian Independence on Aug 15, 1947. My intention for this blog is to present before you some interesting history articles, while being neutral. I hope history lovers and students find them useful. We should learn about the past and adopt positive things from the history. Two best examples are Akbar's religious tolerance and Aurangzeb's religious intolerance.

I may make updates to the existing posts when I come across new information. Please go through the Disclaimer.

I'm 37-year old female from Kerala. I have a good collection of medieval history books, including Mughal, Delhi Sultanate and Anglo-Mysore wars. Learn more about me @ IndiBlogHub
