The Teenage Diary of Nur Jahan

 

Talking Cub

What was the legendary Mughal empress Nur Jahan like as a teenager? History does not have any records so this is an imaginary diary of the young Mehr-un-nissa, as she was known as then. It records her love for poetry and the arts and creates an image of a feisty, passionate and ambitious girl. It also vividly describes the pomp and pageantry of the Mughal court.
