World history

Gopal Gandhi?s wonderfully moving and insightful tragedy elegantly and imaginatively revisits one of Indian history?s great what-if moments, making us ask again how different things might have been if it was heterodox mystic Dara rather than the puritanical bigot Aurangzeb who had won the civil war and led Mughal India?would Islam and Hinduism have been able to bridge their differences? Would the united Mughal lands have managed to stop the colonial conquests? Would Partition have been impossible? Dara Shukoh is a thoughtful and thought-provoking text. About the Author Gopal gandhi took voluntary retirement from the Indian Administrative Service in 1992, was Director of The Nehru Centre, London, from 1992 to 1996, and later High Commissioner for India in South Africa and Sri Lanka, Ambassador of India in Norway , secretary to the President of India and Governor of West Bengal. Gopal (or Gopalkrishna, to use his full name) is married to Tara and they have two married daughters.
