WATERSHED 1967 : India's Forgotten Victory Over China

What happened when India and China last went to battle with each other? China won? Wrong, India won.

And despite several stand-offs in the half century since then, Beijing has never again launched a military offensive against India. This incredible book tells us why these battles ushered in an era of peace.Full of thrilling international intrigue and nail-biting battle scenes, this book is based on extensive research and interviews with army officers and soldiers who participated in these historic battles. It aims to rectify a blind spot in History and shine the spotlight on a story of incredible bravery that India should be proud of.

Jahangir: An Intimate Portrait of a Great Mughal

Jahangir: An Intimate Portrait of a Great Mughal

Jahangir was the fourth of the six Great Mughals - great grandson of Babur and grandfather of Aurangzeb - and the least known among them. His father, Akbar, transformed the Mughal kingdom into an empire, and his reign is often considered an epoch in itself. Jahangir's son Shahjahan built the tomb that Tagore famously described as a 'teardrop on the cheek of time', and was sometimes upheld as Akbar's true heir. Jahangir, on the other hand, has the reputation of a weak man, at best: an alcoholic with an eye for art and greed for pleasure, controlled by a powerful wife. But far from being a disinterested prince and insignificant ruler, Jahangir showed tremendous ambition and strength throughout his life. When his succession was threatened, Jahangir set up a rebel court in the Face of the mighty Akbar himself. While he made no conquests to match his father's, Jahangir was the first Mughal to win the allegiance of the fearsome Ranas of Mewar. And, for all his reputed frivolity, Jahangir was the emperor who won his dynasty its glorious association with things of Beauty and splendour - and who wrote one of the most perceptive and Entertaining imperial memoirs of all time. The man who is most often defined by his Relationships is here presented holistically as a canny ruler and conscientious administrator, an astute observer of human Society and a connoisseur with wide-ranging interests. In this marvellous Work of popular history, Parvati Sharma tells a compelling story of one of the most fascinating and undervalued rulers of India.
