Muhammad Shah rangeeley re sajna, tum bin mai kaa kaari badariya nit naa suhaawe!!

Aurangzeb was the sixth Mughal emperor, and after his death in 1707, as many as six more emperors would sit on the Peacock throne in the next 12 years. On the 10th of September, we shall discuss the period under Mohammad Shah ‘Rangila’, the cultural rennaissance of Delhi, the aftermath of Nadir Shah’s invasion and also how it was the rise of a dowager queen and a powerful eunuch nawab who became the proxy rulers after Rangeela’s death.
