Exeter Institutagram Conversation (#ExeterConvos)

Professor Supriya Gandhi (Yale): Dara Shukoh’s Legacy in Modern South Asia

Event details

Earlier this month IAIS launched a series of live Exeter Institutagram Conversations (#ExeterConvos) on #InstaLive in order to keep in touch with colleagues and their research around the world. Please do join today's conversation.  #ExeterConvos #InstaLive


Supriya Gandhi’s wonderfully composed narrative about Dara Shukoh should be of interest to those looking at how modern South Asia looks back at its Mughal history and the war of succession to Shahjahan. We will discuss the old question of what if Dara had succeeded and not Aurangzeb? Would the subsequent history of South Asia ending in the partitioned three states of the present been different?
