Overview for The Great Mughals (5 In 1): Amar Chitra Katha
Unlike his ancestors, Genghis Khan and Timur, Babur was no marauding invader who looked at India with the eyes of a plunderer. The foundation he laid gave rise to one of the most powerful dynasties that ever ruled India – The Mughal Dynasty. This collection tells of Babur's life before he came to India. It traces the misfortune of his son, Humayun, as he struggled to retain the throne of Delhi, and tells of the glorious rule of Akbar, the greatest of all Mughals, who cared for his subjects like a father but was unable to communicate the same love to his son, Jahangir. And finally it tells of the fifth Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, whose life touched the heights of joy and the depths of suffering.
