Travels in The Punjab, Afghanistan and Turkistan.

Description This travelogue is written by a Persian secretary to Lord William Bentick during his travel in 1830s in central Asia. It is an account of his observations and experiences during his travel through Delhi, Peshawar, Kabul, Balk, Bokhara, Herat, Calcutta, Ludhiana in Punjab and England. It is a detailed account of Maharaja Ranjit Singh's kingdom, Afghan ruler's territory and finally England. It is almost a date wise account of the places and their people. The account is interesting and gives us a glimpse into the feudal world of Asia and democratic set up in the west. The contrast between the two is unmistakable.[edit]
