Description

The purely artificial individual endeavours of an Akbar and a Dara Shikuh to introduce Hindu thought and speculation into Persian literature have remained almost completely isolated and sterile. A little literary theological island has been created which has remained uninhabited and from which no travelers have undertaken further voyages into the world of Islam.

Now Professor Mahfuz-ul-Haq comes, in the present publication, with a contribution of singular interest for this subject. It is not that this “Mingling of the two Oceans” proves to be a book of deep insight or great spirituality. But it gives us a starting point. From this little book we can work backwards and forwards.

Professor Haq, by his painstaking translation and by the fullness on his annotation, has deserved well of his readers and has made easy the task of students in this particular field who may be neither Sanskritists nor Persianists. Dara Shikuh, whether he was great of soul or only an aristocratic but small dabbler in great things, will remain a tragic figure in human history. As the last continuator of a short line of activity begun by his great-grandfather, the great Akbar, he is also an historical figure in the development of Indian thought. For all these and many other reasons the present work is remarkable in which from beyond the gulf of death the voice of Hindu-Muslim Unity has been given life again, insistent, sincere and tragic.
