After Aurangzeb Alamgir, history has been singularly unkind to the later Mughals. Even the school history books do not talk of them. But the period with its vicious court intrigues, recalcitrant and increasingly independent provincial governors, and a ruling class which had become utterly amoral, corrupt and unscrupulous makes for a gripping story and fascinating parallels can be drawn with the political scene of today.
