‘Why India could not defend against foreign invasions’ in the past
centuries, is an open question on the minds of most compatriots.
This land had achieved the lofty heights of greatness in
learning, philosophy, and sciences, among its peers of the ancient
world. But then, somewhere in the ‘swirling mist of time’, it lost its

Period, it was shorn of all that plumage of greatness and majesty
and rendered feeble and vulnerable to onslaughts.
This book is about ‘how and why all this subjugation
transpired’. The analysis about ‘how and why all this transpired’,
began with Volume-I. In Volume-II we visited the Islamic
Ascension to Deccan. In this Volume-III, we shall witness yet
another ‘successive’ invasion of Hindustan – this time by Mughals.
The total appraisal relating to how the ancient ‘Bharata Varsha’
was transmogrified into ‘Hindustan’ during the Medieval Period
and then to ‘India’, is accomplished in five volumes.
The ‘causes of our incapacity’ to defend and repel the invaders
are intently explored, which then become ‘Lessons for the Future’
