|“Daughters of the Sun” by Ira Mukhoty. Wonderful book written about the mysterious women in the Mughal empire. These women are of the Mughal Zenana who were accomplished, educated and articulate.|
As a kid I was not fond of history but now it intrigues me. They were empowered women, well educated in mathematics, astronomy, literature, architecture and their influence as daughters, mothers and wives. A book worth reading. Always interesting to see things through another prospective.
The author has researched well. And has tried to introduce to the readers the women who played a vital role in building the Mughal empire. Daughters of the sun tells us a gripping history a little known aspect of the most magnificent dynasty the world has ever known.
Rather the book came as an eye opener about these women. As an Indian it is fascinating reading about these women.
