The story of the maverick sultan of Delhi at his fort – Tughlaqabad
Muhammad-bin-Tughlaq is an enigma in Indian medieval history; he is a genius who was far ahead of his times, a self-obsessed power-hungry sultan accused of murdering his own father and brother for the throne of Delhi, a devout Muslim who forced his religion with all his force on his citizens, a spiritual seeker who sought enlightenment all his life, a scholar par excellence and a madman who changed his capital twice and inflicted woes and tortures on his subjects which would shock the brutality of barbarians.  Will the real Muhammad-bin-Tughlaq stand up?
Well, he will.

Language: Hindi/English

About the speaker/ artist: On a curated walk conducted by a passionate Delhi, history, monuments, architecture, poetry, story, theater lover – Parthajeet, who works as Public Education Leader at Ernst and Young (EY) for South Asia, the story of Muhammad-bin-Tughlaq will be brought alive. 

Through facts, stories, visualisation and physical presence and touch of the remnants of the fort Parthajeet will take us to the time and lives of Tughlaq. The walk will cover the ruined fort of Tughlaquabad, the tomb of Ghiasuddin Tughlaq (Muhammad’s father and sponsor of the fort and the third city of Delhi) and culminate in a special theatrical improvisation where we will listen to the mumblings of the maverick sultan – Tughlaq played by Parthajeet.
