A little about me. I am Anjana, a passionate history lover.

One who wishes to return to the era of the Indus Valley Civilization to learn the mysteries......I can hear the debates in Akbar's Ibadat Khana...... I had been there when Dara Shukoh was brought before Aurangzeb......... I can hear the severe thunderstorm that occurred in the evening of Tipu Sultan's funeral as if it was his last roar........ I can see copper coins lying in heaps at Tughlaqabad........ I can hear the sounds of Rani Durgavati's royal drums, calling the spirits of her warriors......... I can see Rama Raya shouting Garuda! Garuda! and charging on his enemies.....I can hear the trumpeting of Hemu's war elephants.....

I specially admire three historical figures: Sher Shah Suri, Hemu and Hyder Ali, all three were non royals but later rose to a kingly position.

  3. While searching for information about Rev C. F. Schwartz, I came across your blog. I appreciate the articles you have written about Hyder and Tipu.

  4. I am sorry to say but facts are Sher Shah, Hemu were opportunists or incidental kings as they took advantage of weakness and grabbed power without ever fighting the strength of an equal force. I admire and others too should ponder and believe that the all time greatest, warriors, who literally lived in the rugged battle fields unlike others sacrificing the plush lives of grand palaces despite already inheriting kingdoms, immense wealth, were, but chose struggle, reach new frontiers, establishing harmonious administration —

    1) Allaudin Khilji, 2) Babur the Great,
    3) Alamgir Aurangzeb,
    4) Ahmed Shah Abdali.
    Many would not agree but the fact will remain forever these 4 among the few had the raw courage they possessed, Military Strategy,

  5. Yes, the misteries of history fascinates me too..

  6. Anjanaji,its fascinating to read history which changes the outlook of socity either positively or negative,
    In my view As common lay man trust its doctor, religious person trust maulvi priest, pandit ,
    Anything written as history must be scientifically ( All three principal of science ) must must be used. History is history not good not bad but it must be authentic.
    Its affect psychi of society which have repercussion on harmony .But created or customised history
    Must be avoided.
