Shazi Zaman studied all primary sources of Akbar's time to understand how his mind was reacting to events around him and how his mind was shaping events around him. He has meticulously read official and voluminous history of AbulFazl --Akbarnama, the unofficial and secretly written critical account of Mulla Abdul QadirBadaoni Muntakhabuttawarikh, and many, many more. His quest for the subject, took the author from the Indian Museum, Kolkata to Victoria & Albert London. 

The book ‘Akbar’ is the result of two decades of unparalleled research by Shazi Zaman on the life of the celebrated Mughal emperor.  Speaking on the occasion, author Shazi Zaman said, “I am overwhelmed by the response Akbar has evoked. Obviously it is testimony to the fact that the emperor is very much alive in the collective memory of the people of Hindustan. The tale of Akbar's inner and outer battles has never lost relevance.”

People across media fraternity and other intellectuals attended the event at the India International Center. The evening was enlivened with Maand singing by Abid Ali Khan. He sang ‘jalla’, a composition sung in Rajasthani weddings. The song finds a relevant mention in the book.

Sanjeev Kumar, Associate Professor, Deshbandhu College, Delhi University, who anchored the event, said, “This book has been written with a lot of preparation. In fact, it is one of the few books in Hindi, written with so much of homework. One can realize that while reading. Considering this, it’s a very significant book.”

The book is published in Hindi by Rajkamal Prakashan and Speaking Tiger has bought the rights for its translation into English.
