The Emperor Akbar ( 1542-1605 ) The architect of modern India was the great Mughal Emperor Akbar who gave equal respect to people of all communities and appointed them to the highest offices on their merits irrespective of their religion, caste, etc. The Emperor Akbar held discussions with scholars of all religions and gave respect not only to Muslim scholars, but also to Hindus, Christians, Parsis, Sikhs, etc. Those who came to his court were given respect and the Emperor heard their views, sometimes alone, and sometimes in the Ibadatkhana (Hall of Worship) in Fatehpur Sikri, where people of all religions assembled and discussed their views in a tolerant spirit. The Emperor declared his policy of Suleh-e-Kul, which means universal toleration of all religions and communities. He abolished Jeziya in 1564 and the pilgrim tax in 1563 on Hindus and permitted his Hindu wife to continue to practise her own religion even after their marriage. This is evident from the Jodha Bai Palace in Fatehpur Sikri which is b ...

Fatehpur Sikri, India Built by Emperor Akbar to be the most beautiful city in the world, it was widely thought this goal was achieved - until people realised the city lacked access to water. It was abandoned as the capital of the Mughal Empire after just 10 years and is today a perfectly preserved 16th-century town.
Agra's betting bazaar places AAP at third place: After months of high voltage election campaign, peace has descended here and the talk in the betting bazaar hints at the Aam Aadmi Party emerging a close third, denting the poll prospects of strong contenders. Candidates have now returned to their homes with family members, while poll analysts are busy with tabulating forecasts on poll results. But the Agra satta bazaar has been abuzz with activity since Thursday evening. Aam Aadmi Party candidate Ravindra Singh told IANS: "The sattebazis have placed our party in the third position, after the BJP and the Congress." He said the party has fielded over 400 candidates, many of whom are capable of cutting down a few thousand votes of their rivals. "The Aam Aadmi cannot win a single seat by itself, but yes surely its candidates in the final analysis would be accused of spoiling the party of many strong candidates," said poll pundit Paras Nath Choudhary.

Steps taken by AAP and these steps can not be taken by modi New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) recently dropped five candidates, including three in Uttar Pradesh, after negative internal reports. So far, 15 candidates have been withdrawn by the party. Candidates for Robertsganj, Fatehpur Sikri and Ambedkar Nagar in UP were asked to withdraw their candidature when senior party leaders realized that they were not campaigning effectively, while a Bihar candidate was dropped from the poll race after it was found that he had a case of kidnapping against him that he had not declared. Similarly, bowing to public perception, an Odisha candidate was asked to withdraw when it came to light that there were 28 criminal cases pending against him including one of murder. While the UP candidates will be replaced, the constituencies of Karakat in Bihar and Kandamal in Odisha will remain vacant as the last date of nomination has passed.

Are you willing to see some of the best cultural monuments of India which are architecturally elegant? If yes then you might go to see Agra which is a historic and ancient town of India found on the banks of the Yamuna River in Uttar Pradesh province. Agra is throughout the world mentioned for its beautiful buildings essentially for mughal establishments such as Taj Mahal (the Representation of Love & Romance), Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri which all are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These cultural heritage sites are traveled to by a large gathering of domestic and foreign guests every year.   The primary fascination to see on Agra organized tours in India is definitely the Taj Mahal – which is not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site but also recognized as one of the most gorgeous and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Taj Mahal is a white marble mausoleum monument built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the loving remembrance of his most beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. It is India’s star attraction and ...

Amar Singh’s last ditch attempt Is Amar Singh more sinned against than sinning? He is yet again back to his old game of dropping teasers about skeletons in other people’s cupboards. May be the itch for limelight still doesn’t give in. Aditi Phadnis Amar Singh’s compulsion to play a knight in shining armour appears to have triumphed over better judgment. Having been turned away from the Congress, he has done a deal with Ajit Singh’s Rashtriya Lok Dal, which is part of the Congress alliance. So while he’s not in the Congress, he’s still a part of its seat-sharing agreement. He will contest Fatehpur Sikri. He’s gone through all these contortions, he says a trifle wearily, for the sake of his loyal friend Jaya Prada, the only other party associate he has left, who will contest Bijnor. Amar Singh says has seen it all, the highs and lows. His life flashed by him when he was on a ventilator fighting for life in Dubai, in Singapore after his kidney transplant, in jail. His health is a bit better, ...

Playing a grey character of Haider in Zee TV’s popular show Qubool Hai, Mohit talks about the motive of Haider’s consummation with Humaira. It seems that love is blooming between Haider and Humaira these days in Four Lions’ popular show Qubool Hai on Zee TV as the two were seen consummating in the recent episode of the show. But there is some interesting twist in store for the viewers. We were quite inquisitive to know more about the same and hence contacted Mohit who tell us, “I think the story needed it because of the revenge track as Haider is trying to take revenge from Mamu (Tej Sapru). That’s why the consummation scene had to be included and Haider had to do it. Right now it has happened just for revenge but later on may be Creatives will do something about it and then the love track might also happen. I really don’t know what’s going to be the next step of Haider because it all depends on the creative team. I get to know about the upcoming episode track on every single day.” So, has ...
Jahangir was the eldest surviving son of Mughal Emperor Akbar and was declared successor to his father from an early age. Impatient for power, however, he revolted in 1599 while Akbar was engaged in the Deccan. Jahangir was defeated, but ultimately succeeded his father as Emperor in 1605 due to the immense support and efforts of his step-mothers, Empress Ruqaiya Sultan Begum and Salima Sultan Begum, both of whom wielded great influence over Akbar and favoured Jahangir as his successor.[1] The first year of Jahangir's reign saw a rebellion organized by his eldest son Khusrau Mirza. The rebellion was soon put down; Khusrau was brought before his father in chains. After subduing and executing nearly 2000 members of the rebellion, Jahangir blinded his renegade son. Jahangir built on his father's foundations of excellent administration, and his reign was characterized by political stability, a strong economy and impressive cultural achievements. The imperial frontiers continued to move forward—in Bengal, Mew ...

Akbar's folly There are many legends as to why the beautiful city of Fatehpur Sikri lies deserted. This is one of them. There are many legends about Akbar, the emperor. This is one such. Emperor Akbar wanted a son. He went to visit the sage, Salim Chisti. The wise man told Akbar that he would soon have a son. A year later, the queen had a son whom Akbar named Salim. Akbar was so happy that he decided to build a city in honour of Chisti. He built a beautiful fortified city near the village of Sikri, and called it Fatehpur. You can see the city even today. It lies not far from Agra. The villagers of Sikri were happy to have the protection of the emperor. Each of Akbar's queens had a palace. Many villagers went to the city to work in these palaces. There lived in Sikri a dancer named Zarina. She longed to work in the palace like her friends, but her father wouldn't hear of it. Then one day, the emperor threw a grand party for some visitors. He called his musician Tansen to play for him. "I must have dancers, ...

Namaste. I have just had the most amazing time in India. Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. A train journey on the Shatabdi express and two safari drives at Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve. The highlights have got to be the magnificent Taj Mahal and the impressive Amber Fort. It was a busy trip including five UNESCO World Heritage Sites so I hit the ground running. It was fantastic to learn about ancient empires, dynasties, sultans and great Mughals. Some of the places visited were Jama Masjid, Agra Fort, the Ghost City of Fatehpur Sikri, City Palace of Jaipur including Jantar Mantar the largest observatory in the world, Hawa Mahal the Palace of the Winds, Qutub Minar and the final resting place of Mahatma Gandhi. I feel privileged to have seen these fantastic places and met some lovely people along this journey.

India – Short & Sweet!! For someone for the west, India provides an authentic adventure - stimulating, absorbing, daunting, sometimes moving and shocking. Here is one of the world's great dramas; an ancient, vast and crowded land committed to the most formidably challenging exercise in mass democracy. It is a spectacle in which hope, pride, paradox and uncertainty mingle and struggle. It is conducted on the whole, and to India's credit in the open. The lasting memories of the land are hospitality, kindness, good humor and generosity. Here is a society of over a 1000 million people, growing by a million a month, divided and united by language, caste, religion and regional loyalties. It has often been described as a functioning anarchy; and it is in many ways an amiable one, of marvelous fluidity and tolerance. Indeed, the true Indian motif is not the Tajmahal, the elephant or the patient peasant behind the ox drawn plough. It is the crowd, the ocean of faces in the land of multitudes, endlessly stirring, ...

Unnao gold hunt leads to digging for precious metal elsewhere www.mediaoptions.co.in = The Unnao gold hunt has led to illegal digging at forts and temples rumoured to have hidden treasures in Uttar Pradesh. Shobhan Sarkar, the seer who had "dreamt" about 1,000 tonne gold buried under Unnao's Daundia Khera fort, had said the precious metal was hidden in Fatehpur's Adampur area as well. As the news spread, some people dug up the platform of an ancient Shiva temple near the Ganga's main ghat in Fatehpur. Reports said about two dozen places in ruins have been dug up. It was also rumoured that the diggers had fled with some gold. Residents claimed Mahant Mohandas, who lives near the temple, was held at gunpoint during digging forcing authorities to cordon off the temple. Fatehpur district magistrate Abhay Kumar said security personnel have been deployed to prevent a repeat of such activity. Sarkar's disciple, Om Ji, had claimed "no less than 2,500 tonne of gold is hidden in the ruins in Adampur village". He sa ...
