This volume offers a fascinating glimpse into a fabled world. It provides a record of the customs, rituals, and the medieval pageantry to which the author was eyewitness and which now seem to belong to a distant age. Her book examines the heritage of these traditions, which were an integral part of Indo-Muslim culture from Mughal times until Partition, and which are still practiced in modern India and Pakistan.
