Hi I am Anjana, a passionate history enthusiast. I long to travel back in time and uncover the secrets of a bygone era - the Indus Valley civilization.
I witness centuries-old events unfold before me - I can hear the debates in Akbar's Ibadat Khana..... I had been there when Dara Shukoh was captured and brought before Aurangzeb..... I can hear the violent thunderstorm that occurred 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, summoning the spirits of her warriors..... I can see Rama Raya shouting Garuda! Garuda! as he charges his foes at Raksas-Tagdi.....I can hear the trumpeting of Hemu's war elephants at Panipat.....
When I first began this blog in 2013, it came as a surprise to me that much of the information we find online and in books isn't always backed by facts, but instead shrouded with fictional tales given false historical context. With no background history to draw on myself, it took me time and effort to be able discern fact from fiction and identify authentic historians.
I would like to draw attention to a statement made by Kaviraj Syamaldas, which highlights the contrasting approaches of the Muhammadans and Hindus towards recording history. According to Syamaldas, the Muhammadans had a well-established system of documenting historical events, while the Hindus lacked such a system. The only semblance of historical documentation in Hindu culture was limited to genealogies and exaggerated poems of the times, as recorded in the books of the bards.
