But then I have found some great books and authors through recommendations from friends. Now I can confidently say that this author is here to stay on my list to read. The hard work and perseverance of author Indu Sundaresan shines through the book. But building a story piece by piece requires a lot of imagination. Especially historical fiction has to be treated very carefully with a basic premise of being true in years and not in moments. As in we all know about the war but not the minor battles… Indu unveils Mehrunissa slowly and gracefully, as a beautiful, intelligent and a thinking woman. An ordinary woman who achieves power, fame, wealth and success in a man dominated Muslim dynasty is quiet an aberration in itself. She was more of a man than any other man in that Mughal era and actually running the show behind Jahangir. To make her presence felt and be the Kohinoor of the crown amongst wives of Jahangir is quite a feat. She was a 30 year old widow with a child when she married Jahangir, displacing all the royal blood queens and mothers of future heirs to the crown. She was the most powerful woman in India at that time — she could move armies, win wars, give away land and favours to ministers or British — anything she wanted. The history text books in schools ignore her role in shaping history, but there is no denying that her influence and control over Jahangir actually defines the path of Muslim dynasty in India.
