LAST YEARS OF DEPOSED EMPEROR SHAH JAHAN 1067 AH
A HOROSCOPE FOLIO OF A PALMIST GHULAM SHAH JAHAN
In 1067 AH, 1657 AD Shah Jahan was deposed by his son Emperor Aurangzeb Alamgeer and put under house arrest of Agra Fort, free to do many things (including watching the mausoleum of his wife), but no indulgence in the affairs of the country. We have seen manuscripts, documents related to his reign and with beautiful engraved seals. The same are royal in character, huge in size, with attributes of the Emperor on them. I have never seen a seal of a period when Shah Jahan was no longer a king, and came across one for the first time in my life. It is a small seal and it says among other things GHULAM SHAH JAHAN, literally SLAVE SHAH JAHAN. Not a King but a normal person. The Seal is very small, the name of the GHULAM is not given but love and respect is still there, when the Ghulam says DIL O JAN, literally heart and life. It is in a folio of an astrologer palmist and his numerical numbers. He is probably working out a horoscope of the deposed Emperor.
The seal is HISAB AZ DIL OH JAN GHULAM SHAH JAHAN SHUD 1067 AH, that is 1657-1658 AD. The last digit is not clearly visible and can be 1068 AH or even 1069 AH. Open to research!
