Neither Fate Nor Historians Have Been Kind To Himu... Historians, Medieval And Modern, Have Scant Justice To, And Failed To Show Due Appreciation Of The Unique Personality And Greatness Of A Hindu Who, During The Heyday Of Muslim Rule In India, Worked His Way From A Grocer S Shop To The Throne Of Delhi, And, But For An Accident In A Battle Which Turned Victory Into Defeat, Might Have Founded A Hindu Ruling Dynasty, Instead Of The Mughals, In Delhi... (R.C. Majumdar). The Author Has Made An Attempt To Fill Up This Gap In History. He Has Studied Himu Against The Historical Background Of Afghan-Mughal Conflicts.The Presentation Of The Matter Is Objective, Unbiased And Free From Prejudices And Supernaturalism.It Is Hoped That The Book Would Be Found Useful By Students And Researchers Of Medieval History. It Would Also Be Of Great Interest For The Layman.
