    Author's strategy in his book in 3 simple steps 1 Lets denounce each and every historian who has put his view on the medieval period of Indian History3 Lets give statistics without any basis like so and so %age of army under so and so Mughal ruler belonged to so and so religion3 Even though Aurangzeb destroyed temples during his reign reimposed jiziyah if the historian from his age proclaim he ordered to destroy the temples and to ban public practice of religion other than his own he knows no better Lets proclaim Aurangzeb was just to all no matter what religion they belong toAdd to this misspellings lack of proper maps picturesSeriously reading this after A wonder that was India was such a faux pas

    Medieval India was filled with wars plunders invaders Most of these invasions plundering obviously carried out by Muslim invaders While their primary motive may be to loot the great Indian wealth in the course and in resonance with events in Central Asia they also wanted to ascertain the Islamic supremacy A major part of that being destruction of temples and executions of non believers opposers and taking women as prizes of their invasions which ultimately lead to Jauhar by Rajput women during invasions All these horrible events and their associations mainly with Islamic ruler make it difficult to write a historical without hurting Muslim sentiments This book almost completely ducts this challenge instead it almost always tried to justify the actions based on some political grounds The worst part when author even tried to present a different story of the execution of Guru Teg Bahadur by Aurangzeb The incident is well known and an example of intolerant sadistic and religious bigotry of Aurangzeb However instead of going harsh on him author termed his actions as political mistakesThere are some positive aspects too of the Mughal rule and spread of Islam in India This book excels in highlighting those aspects Whether it's the reign of Akbar or the amazing Bhakti Sufi cultural integrations and religious tolerance in the country However almost always there was a ban on the building of new temples in the rule of any Mulsim ruler The early parts of the book dealing with Palas Pratiharas Cholas give an account of excellent trading conditions in India and economic prosperity at that time the architectural magnificence and temple building of Cholas However even after reading this book I have no idea what was happening outside the Sultanate and Mughal rule in the South after 1400Another aspect where the book was not up to the par was the further elaboration of cultural and religious texts and poets of the time I felt that any book on Medieval Indian History should at least have the mention of Ramacharitamanas Sursagar Authors description of the medieval poets and writers in no way justifies the poetic brilliance and impact of these writers on the society The narrative also at times becomes dull and uninteresting


  3. Dayanand Prabhu Dayanand Prabhu says:

    One of the most un interesting books I have ever come across No references are given for any content which kind of makes me uestion the credibility of the book The Reason why Indians hate history is because Historians Like Satish are incapable of writing good history


  4. Saurabh Saurabh says:

    Dry not reader friendly and written with an obvious coloured lens No references and sweeping opinions out of thin air The indigenous people have been completely ignored Indian students deserve betterCan serve as a starting material at best


  5. Aditya Kane Aditya Kane says:

    The language could have been a lot better and the references are totally missing


  6. Ajay Ajay says:

    Filled with biased personal opinions instead of history and tries to portray mughal rulers as gods and justify each of their heinous act


  7. Riju Ganguly Riju Ganguly says:

    As part of my preparations for Civil Services I had to read this book comprehensively and on several occasions Recent histrionics courtesy the Elections over medieval Indian history had rather shaken me and I felt that a return to the basic secular mode through this book might clarify the perspectives a little Enjoyed it despite its brevity and rather sweeping observations without a single bibliographical support which appear even flimsy it's a good read and a good primer for an interesting and contentious period of history Recommended


  8. Rithik Rithik says:

    I have read only the first 88 pages of the book and felt it difficult to surpass The book seems to cover all major topics of Medieval Indian History but the writing style is not easy The Author introduces a topic and explains a bit about it and deviates into many other topics in a section although topics are related those are numerous to keep track


  9. Chandrakiran M Chandrakiran M says:

    Dull narrative style Filled with innumerable unnecessary details The author goes on for pages without making any significant points


  10. Gordhan Chaudhari Gordhan Chaudhari says:

    Major portion of book only contain history in perspective of Delhi and glorified invading forces Indian Kings not finds any mention or author finished in 1 or 2 paragraph Analysis done in Marxist perspective everything shown as he was like writing on gun point Not much of South Kings East Kings of Burma or NE Rajputs VijayNagar empire or coastal kingdom Tribal society
