Al-Biruni, celebrated mathematician and astronomer, came to India in the wake of the invading forces of Mahmud of Ghazni in the 11th century. His 'Enquiry into India',popularly known in its original Arabic version as 'Tarikhu'l Hind', is erudite and, as an historical chronicle of its kind, a classic. There is much in this chronicle that reads likefiction, while being at the same time an objective record of the history, character, manners and customs of India at the same time.
