When the British authorities have consolidated their rule and exploitation all over India, established their authority over the whole society, politics, land system, judiciary and administration and there is nothing left of the old sultanate or empire. Began to remember history anew.
A learned businessman from Delhi suggested compiling and editing Ain-e-Akbari, an important book written during the reign of Mughal Emperor Akbar. This book, written by Abul Fazl, one of the courtiers of Akbar’s Navaratna Sabha, contains a detailed account of the history of Akbar’s reign, culture, civilization, administration and all the functions of the Mughal court.
Sir Syed Ahmad Khan agreed. Sir Syed Ahmad Khan undertook this task to create an opportunity to bring the Muslims back to the mainstream of India by overcoming the catastrophe that befell the Muslims after the Sepoy Mutiny and the treatment of the Muslims by the British authorities. Earlier, he had written an important book in Persian called “Asar-us-Sanadid” or “The Remains of the Ancient Heroes”. It describes the history, geography and the civilization associated with the ancient buildings of the city of Delhi.
Before the publication of Ain-e-Akbari, it would have been better if Sir Syed Ahmad Khan had written the introduction of the book with Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib. He requested Ghalib to write his statement on the book, which would be given as an introduction. Ghalib wrote his statement and sent it to Syed Ahmad Khan. It is included in Ghalib’s Persian Diwan as “Takriz-e-Ain-e-Akbari”.
In his introduction, Ghalib harshly criticizes Sir Syed’s past-love mentality and laments that a wise man like Sir Syed is wasting his time on old things. Ghalib commented that Emperor Akbar’s law was meaningless and meaningless to the laws made by the British. He writes: “Murda parvardatamubarak kar nist” means “it is not a good thing to practice the activities of dead people.” According to Ghalib, a person like Sir Syed Ahmad Khan has to waste his time to edit or edit any important book like Ain-e-Akbari.
There were hardly any people comparable to Ghalib in terms of progressive thinking. He thought that the Indian nation should keep pace with new knowledge and new way of life rather than living in the past. In the introduction, he has given more importance than the criticism of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan to prove that Akbar’s law is meaningless over time. Altaf Hossain Hali, a biographer of Ghalib, wrote, “After the introduction of Mirza Ghalib reached Sir Syed, he sent it back to Ghalib and wrote it in a letter; “I don’t need any such role.” Therefore, Ghalib’s written introduction did not find a place in “Ain-e-Akbari” edited by Sir Syed.
After this incident, a distance developed between the two and the relationship deteriorated. Thus, even after a few years, the relationship between Sir Syed and Mirza Ghalib did not improve. Suddenly a situation arises that contributes to the distance between the two. Sir Syed himself wrote in this regard: “When I was in Muradabad (he was appointed as a judge in Muradabad), Mirza Sahib went to Rampur to meet Nawab Yusuf Ali Khan. Although I did not hear of his departure, when he returned, I learned that he had been raised in an inn in Muradabad. Upon receiving the news, I went to the inn and brought Mirza Sahib’s belongings and companions to my house. ”
When Mirza Ghalib reached Sir Syed’s house, he habitually took out a bottle of liquor and placed it on the table. The bottle was in such a place that if anyone passed by, his eyes would fall on the bottle. Sir Syed picked up the bottle of liquor and hid it inside the house. After a while Mirza Ghalib came to get the bottle and saw that the bottle was not in the right place. He wants to know: “Where did my wine bottle go?”
Sir Syed took Mirza Ghalib to the room where he had hidden the bottle. Seeing the bottle, Ghalib said, “Some wine has disappeared from the bottle. Tell me the truth, who drank? ”He then recited Hafiz’s poem:
“Baijan ki jalwa-par mehrab-o-mimbar mi kunad,
Chum b-khalwat mi-rawand am kar-e-digar mi kunad. ”
That is, “Give alms from the pulpit and the mosque to show,
And when you’re alone, do something different. ”
Sir Syed Ahmed Khan laughed and thus the emotional distance between the two came to an end.
