Exhibition on Aurangzeb in India
Francois Gautier’s organization is holding an exhibition on Aurangzeb in New Delhi (at India Habitat Center) from Feb 16 to 20, 2007. Here is the link to the news-article.
We have Auranzeb road in New Delhi, we have Aurangabad (the real name was Sambhaji Nagar) in Maharastra! What makes us persist with the signposts of an empire (Moghul empire) which was a dark period in the Indian history? Just our defeated mentality or we donot even care? The problem is that when we talk of such issues, the people tend to get polarized along their faith lines. The historical facts are important to us, our culture, our heritage and will shape our future. Thus a critical analysis should be done with a sense of rationality.
