Sty is uiet an aberration in itself It wasn t only her beauty but the brains which made Jahangir and the entire Mughal kingdom bow to her She was of a man than any other man in that Mughal era and actually running the show behind Jahangir To make her presence felt and be the Kohinoor of the crown amongst 800 wives of Jahangir is uite a feat She was a 30 year old widow with a child when she married Jahangir displacing all the royal blood ueens and mothers of future heirs to the crown I believe if she delivered a son to Jahangir Mehrunissa s power and control would have been longer She was the most powerful woman in India at that time she could move armies win wars Philosophy of Religion give away land and favours to ministers or British anything she wanted The history text books in schools ignore her role in shaping history but there is no denying that her influence and control over Jahangir actually defines the path of Muslim dynasty in India The marriage of Shahjahan to Mumtaz Mehal Mehrunissa s niece marrying her own daughter to Shah Jahan s brother prompting him to kill his own brother for the throne liaison with British for protection to Indian ships all these thingsave roots to Taj Mahal Aurangzeb coming to rule after killing his brothers and British firming their foot hold on
