Salman Khurshid and Malvika Singh along with other prominent names were present. Babur, being her only work of fiction, is conceived as the first book to the trilogy of Mughal emperors.
<g data-gr-id="26">Royina</g> narrates the story of the first Mughal emperor, Babur, as a poet, writer, lover, aesthete and an inspiring general. <g data-gr-id="27">Royina’s</g> tale starts on the eve of the Battle of Panipat.
The Author has recreated the character of Babur as an emperor who was accessible and inspiring.
<g data-gr-id="28">Royina</g> whose earlier works have revolved around nature and environment said, “There is a lot that has been written about Babur, the warrior. But I remember thinking that a warrior could not have built something so beautiful and verdant as these gardens. I wanted to recreate a Babur who was more approachable and was exciting. A father, a husband and more importantly – a human being.
This book combines many human aspects like fictional history, love story, family drama making it a page turner.”
