The Slave-turned-King

hi frnds..... How many of u have an indian king as your role model r inspiration blah blah???..... i dn thnk so...
we wldve studied a lot abt kings like Akbar, Shah-Jahan, Aurangazeb, Tughlaq, and let us not forget our Muhammmed Ghazni.... but very few abt the other kings and dynasties....

yeah let us see "The slave dynasty" and its funder Qutub ud-din Aibak...

"Hardwork and intelligence alwyas pays"... the only example for the above statement is Mr.Qutub ud-din... Qutub ud-din belong to a very pooor family in turkey who was working as a slave under prof. Fakruddin abdul ajis... after his death... he was sold to some merchant whose name is still unknown...

The day came... when aibak's master was walkin along the streets of ghazni( a place) in afghanisthan..... sudddenly he heard the announcement regarding the requirement of slaves for King Muhammed ghori( the godfather of aibak).... and hence he went wit aibak to the kings fort

Even though aibak wasnt tht impressive.... his build, zeal, and intelligence impressed the sultan instantaneously.... Aibak was very dedicated and devoted watever work tht hes been given... so ultimately he was in the godd books of the sultan.... due to the confidence in aibak the sultan appointed him as the chief for the army....

Then it was Aibak's time..... some noted historians said that they wer in search of words to describe the way aibak fought against prithviraj chauhan and jeyachandran...SO for aibak promotion was a cakewalk......
This created "stomach burnings" in the other chiefs.... which was obvious i suppose....

This continued and at one stage Ghori was so desperate in appointing Aibak as his represenatative in Delhi... and he did.....

and now we have Mr. Qutub ud-din Aibak as the delhi sultan.... but he never got contented and kept on expanding his territory...he was the first person to establish a stable islam dynasty in india....

" Sultan Qutub ud-din Aibak was a very enthusisatic , true warrior. he was an expert in wrestling and other warfares. He led a helping hand to all the needy and the pooorand at the same time he didnt forget to punish the smugglers and petty theives in and around his territory....Needless to say the people were totally happy in the kingdom" praises a noted historian....

But some of the great people live for a short time.... after four years from the day wen aibak sat on the throne... the founder of the slave dynasty died accidentally during a polo practice... so since his reign was very short his mentality and ideas were very clear and he is far more better example for hardwork and confidence than wat we study today....
