There have been many women who have won fame and praise for their courage and power. However, many of them have remained obscure names as not much has been written about them. One such woman is Khunza Humayun Shah, the mother of Chand Bibi.
While a number of biographies have been authored on her illustrious daughter, Chand Bibi, not a single book has been authored on the life and achievements of her great mother. She was a remarkable woman who had enjoyed influence during her husband’s reign and then herself ruled
Khunza Humayun Shah, who Ferishta mentions as the Khoonza Sultana, was the mother of Murtuza Nizam Shah, who was his regent for 6 years and during that period managed the afffairs of the Ahmadnagar Sultanate. Murtuza Nizam Shah was enthroned in 1565.

There is little doubt that sometimes the best way to make sense of the transmission of texts, debates and commentaries is to dive deeply into codices of collected texts (majmūʿa-s) #manuscripts #Islamic #intellectual_history 1/
One good example is the majmūʿa MS Majlis-e Shūrā (Tehran) 5284 which includes ten texts mostly copied by Sulṭān Muḥammad b. ʿAlī Shāh Iṣfahānī in 962/1555 in Bharuch in West India 2/
The collection begins with some works of Jalāl al-Dīn Davānī (d. 1502) - usually called Muḥammad b. Asʿad al-Ṣiddīqī in the incipits - reflecting on Naṣīr al-Dīn al-Ṭūsī (d. 1274) works on the #intellect and #nafs_al_amr and on the logical notion of #conception_taṣawwur 3/

We’ve all been to the #Charminar ,but many don’t know that apart from being the foundation of Hyd,it has designs of pineapples/squirrels in it, and also a mosque on the 2nd floor,which today is inaccessible. A thread on our city's most imp monument (pic is of mosque) #History Image
In 1591, Mohd Quli Qutb Shah, the 5th king of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, decided to move out of the Golconda fort and build a new city outside. That city was to be Hyderabad, the foundational monument for which is the Charminar. #Hyderabad #History #Charminar
We've all heard of the story of Bhagmati that’s associated with Hyderabad's foundational history (will post on it in a separate thread later, please don’t discuss here), but not many know that the city also has a story of a (bubonic) plague at its very roots, and #History

Today's history lesson is about our language. In Hyderabad and the Deccan, people speak in Dakhni, which today is only a spoken language. Words like Kaiku, Nakko, Hao, Manje, Hao-ki etc are imports from Marathi, Kannada and Telugu. A thread on Dakhni.
#Hyderabad #History
Nakko, Kaiku and Hallu (in pic) are 3 commonly used Dakhni words(also called Dakhni Urdu) that we Hyderabadis use in our speech.“Manje/Minjhe” is used by Dakhni speakers in other parts of the Deccan (like Karnataka/MH). FYI Manje in Urdu also refers to a pre-wedding ritual.
“Hyderabadi Hindi” is what north Indians wrongly call Dakhni. Please, DON'T call it Hindi. Many Urdu speakers also mistake it for a form of localized Urdu, which, again, is incorrect. Words like “Haula” (mad), “Hau” (yes) and others, are imports from Marathi, Kannada and Telugu.

Architecture is not just about buildings, it’s about society, culture, psychology, politics, landscape, the environment, economics, engineering, mathematics, art, craft, materiality, technology, impact, and projecting the future. It’s about people, place and time.
#Architecture tells a story:of #people who inhabit it,of its #place in context,of #times it's seen.This house is symbolic of use,history,culture,style.Was it always this color?Was it built at once or incrementally?Is it unified or divided inside?So much to peel, layer by layer...
#Vernacular architecture is the architecture born of a place, deeply rooted to the context, created using local materials and age-old technology passed down through generations. The courtyard houses of India are a vernacular archetype for residential architecture...
