Heritage of Harmony: An Insight into Medieval India

Ajeet Jawed (Author)
Synopsis Most of the historical works written on medieval India depict it as an era of dark ages, replete with oppression, atrocities, injustices, forcible conversions, and destruction of holy places. According to such works, there were constant wars between the rulers either to spread or to protect their respective religions. There was disharmony, disunity, distrust and discord among the people and India lagged behind in every field. This misrepresentation of history has greatly harmed the harmonious co-existence of the Indian people and has promoted feelings of ill will, enmity and intolerance between different communities. The truth is that medieval period was an age of elevation, eloquence and enlightenment. Religion was never a source of strife. People lived together as members of a single family and worked together to make India a land of prosperity that dazzled the eyes of the world. Brilliantly written and structured, the book reads like a novel, yet each and every line is backed by years of diligent research. It seeks to place before the people the picture of medieval India as it really was and to restore the perspective that has been deliberately distorted to suite the separatist design of the British imperialist and communalists.
