Reading Tarikh-I-Shershahi-as a source for reconstructing Mughal history


Author(s): Sachin Chauhan

Abstract: Through a primary reading of the text, ably supplemented by secondary works I argue that a text like Tarikh-i-Shershahi, which is mainly viewed as a biography of Sher shah or as an extension of Afghan history in India, when read with greater attention can provide a detailed understanding on themes concerning those with the Mughals. It is only by directing our attention to the large chunks of historical information on Mughal military world, on the Mughal engagement with different social classes as also those concerning the evolving literary culture that one can discern the efficacy of the text as a source for retrieving Mughal history.
