Many of the European travellers that visited Mughal India left behindenthralling accounts of their experiences. Beyond the Three Seas is acollection of the best of these writings, starting from the mid fifteenth centuryand spanning two hundred yea There are stories of hunting with the emperorAkbar and his blindfolded panthers; of being stripped penniless in Surat andfleeing from angry in Bengal in the middle of the night; descriptions of theMughal roadside sarais, trying paan for the first time and of the lax morals ofIndian women. The travellers themselves could not be more different: from thegod-fearing, petulant Russian, Afanasy Nikitin to the Portuguese FatherAntonio Monserrate desperately trying to convert Akbar to the pluckyeighteen-year-old Venetian Niccolao Manucci who finds himself a patron inDara Shukoh.
