Last Mughal: The Fall of a Dynasty Delhi 1857 (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 524

The Last Mughal is a fascinating look at the decline of the Mughal empire in India, set against the backdrop of the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857.

Summary Of The Book

The Last Mughal highlights Dalrymple’s longstanding fascination with the Indian city of Delhi. It presents the Delhi that formed the seat of the Mughal empire in India - a city as brilliant as the monarch who reigned over it. Indeed Bahadur Shah Zafar II embodied the very essence of Delhi city. He was a talented and versatile individual, well-versed in poetry, calligraphy, and mysticism. Despite being under the control of the East India Company to quite an extent, he nevertheless managed to form a dazzling court, setting the stage for one of India’s most culturally rich phases.

In 1857, the Sepoy Mutiny that shook the vast British empire had its roots in the small rebellion staged by Indian troops in the East India company - a rebellion that had Zafar’s approval. The final uprising had far-reaching consequences for the Indians as well as the British. In the aftermath of the uprising, the Mughal empire lay in complete shambles amidst heartbreaking blood and gore. The peaceful, once powerful emperor could only watch in helplessness and grief as his beloved empire was irrevocably lost.

Dalrymple has crafted the book with great care, by conducting in-depth research and paying attention to local sensibilities. He has even succeeded in capturing the prosperous, poetic vibe of the Mughal empire. Above all, his presentation of a beautiful, vibrant, and multi-ethnic city like Delhi has the potential to keep readers fascinated.

The Last Mughal was first published in 2006. It went on to win the Vodafone Crossword Book Award, and the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize For History and Biography. This particular edition is a 2007 reprint.

POIGNANT YET UNPUTDOWNABLE

Once again Dalrymple enthralls and enlightens us through his in depth research, vivid description and intelligent and honest analysis. The amount of research and effort that has gone into writing this book is commendable and i salute Dalrymple for undertaking the mammoth work. It is perhaps the first account of the mutiny from the Indian point of view. Even though it does not give us the entire story and centres round the part played by bahadur shah zafar, the reader can very well piece together the complete picture. Zafar may have been incompetent and spineless but as the descendant of a grea

The Last Mughal - A brilliant portray of 1857.. A must recommended for all who are interested in history of India... A elaborate and heart wrenching depiction of Delhi of 1857, of what could have been and should have been, of rebel atrocities and British vengeance.. Of a king of a decaying dynasty who did all he could only to be made a villain in the history and also to a never told story of Hindu-Muslim unity where in an army of high caste Hindus rallied to revive the Mughal dynasty fighting side by side Muslim brothers.. Simply riveting and brilliantly written .. Hats off William Dalrymple..

I am a layman and find the book very absorbing. It is a most detailed account of 1857 India. It can be used as a reference book as well. Undoubtedly the author is a very learned person and a master story teller.

A masterpiece !!

The book is perfect example of an exhaustive research based historical review of an event that changed the nation and probably brought in sense of nationalism for the first time ever in people of this land. Its a sheer emotionally charged masterpiece which lets you actually visualize the life and events in Delhi in 1857. You just can't stop empathizing with the "last Mughal". Had this book been not there I would have had the conventional schema about this period based on my crude knowledge gained via school history. A must read for history lovers !

Good read

The book gives you insight not only about the last Mughal ruler but also reasons as to why the 1857 revolt failed.
Even though the book is verbose and might seem unattractive for people averse to history, this actually is a good read and definitely deserves a place in your library.
