Emperor Muhammed Shah Invites Garib Das Ji

                          After the death of Bahadur Shah in 1712, it is said, "no member of the house of Timure remained in india, who was fit to take the helm of the ship of the State, which soon drifted on to the rocks. The degraded wretches that polluted the throne of Akbar deserve only a passing notice, the rest of our history is filled with the tragedy of disruption of the splendid edifice reared and fostered by the great Mughals". Farrukhsiyar was deposed, imprisoned, blinded and ultimately killed in an ignominious manner in April, 1719.
