Enjoy the Famous Daily Babur in Kabul:
Its name, he learned meant "mountain of light. Offered it as a gift, Babur refused and left it with his son Humayun.
Suddenly he was less interested in the riches than in how to govern this strange new land. But as he surveyed Hindustan, his enthusiasm for it started to melt away. There is no beauty in its people, no graceful social intercourse, no poetic talent or understanding, no etiquette, nobility or manliness.
The arts and crafts have no harmony or symmetry.
There is no ice, cold water, good food or bread in the markets. The peasantry and common people parade around stark naked. Hindustan is a place of little charm. But Babur was determined he would build Hindustan into something worthy of his dynasty. He would introduce Mughal order and symmetry into what seemed to him a chaotic and senseless land.
He made the princes of Hindustan, the Rajputs, submit to him and laid foundations for the future empire. And it dawned on Babur that it was no longer enough to be a successful conqueror. To fulfill his dreams for his heirs, he had to become a wise ruler as well. A sacrifice to god was necessary.

But Infour years after the conquest of Hindustan, His doctors gave him up for dead. It was a catastrophe the death not only of a beloved son but the heir to Babur's dynasty and empire. Babur had learned the wisdom of sacrifice. But what on earth could he offer God to persuade him to spare his son?
Priests and advisors came with suggestions: He could sacrifice the Kohinoor. But Babur knew it was a worthless bauble compared to the life of his son. He decided only one sacrifice could possibly compare. For days, he prayed fervently to Allah to take his own life in exchange for Humayun's.
Soon after, Humayun recovered and sure enough, Babur fell sick. He stayed true to his oath and refused all offers of treatment. He'd made a deal with Allah a life for a life.The world famous and priceless “ Kohinoor” diamond, which is set in the Crown of the British monarch (Queen Victoria, and Elizabeth II), was acquired from India.
