The third volume of the Indian series of the project Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan in the World Collections will be devoted to the collection from the National Museum of India.

 

Libraries, museums and private collections in India contain a huge number of items presenting very valuable cultural and material heritage created in our territory or by our people. Since the beginning of work in this country, the working team of the World Society for the Study, Preservation and Promotion of the Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan has drawn attention to the collections of significant repositories - the libraries Khuda Bakhsh Khan (Patna), Rampur Raza (Rampur), Maulana Azad (Aligarh), Salar Jung Museum (Hyderabad) , Asiatic Society (Kolkata) and the National Museum of India (Delhi).

 

The first two albums of the Indian series have already been published - they are dedicated to the literary heritage of Uzbekistan in the Rampur Raza library collection.

 

Part I of the publication The Literary Heritage of Uzbekistan in the Collection of the Rampur Raza Library (India) (volume 33) contains manuscripts related to the Mughal (Baburid) era, which are the literary heritage of Uzbekistan. They were created by immigrants from Mawarannahr, in the territory of Mawarannahr or in India itself. There are also works on the history of the Timurids, manuscripts in Turkic and many others, revealing the genre richness of medieval literature.

 

Part II of the publication The Literary Heritage of Uzbekistan in the Collection of the Rampur Raza Library (India) (volume 34) presents works on jurisprudence, philosophy, rhetoric, poetry, medicine, and other topics that reveal the genre richness of medieval literature.

 

It is well known to scholars studying manuscripts that the Rampur Raza library is famous for its rich collection of Arabic, Persian and Turkic manuscripts, collected with great love. Many valuable manuscripts of Central Asian origin were acquired by the Nawwabs of Rampur and Khuda Bakhsh Khan through the Afghans, who brought them to India in the first decade of the 20th century. The book-album dedicated to the Uzbek collection of the Rampur Raza Library includes richly illustrated manuscripts created in the Timurids era. The manuscripts presented have a wide range of subjects: tadhkira (bibliographic collections), essays on Sufi topics, travel notes, poetry and much more.

The third volume of the Indian series (volume 37) will be devoted to the heritage of Uzbekistan kept in the National Museum of India. These are mainly artifacts related to the Kushan and Mughal (Baburid) eras. Let us remember: about two thousand years ago, the territory of modern Uzbekistan and India was united by the Kushan kingdom, which contributed to cultural and spiritual interactions between these territories. The authors of the volume are Indian experts Komal Pande and Katibur Rahman. In addition to valuable manuscripts, it will feature antique sculpture, numismatics, and jewelry. Among the manuscripts, Baburnama by Zahiriddin Babur and Timurnama, both translated into Persian and richly illustrated, particularly stand out.

 

Work with Indian colleagues continues, in the future it is planned to release a book-album dedicated to the cultural heritage of Uzbekistan in the library of Khuda Bakhsh Khan - another treasury of India, the keeper of such manuscripts as Timurnama, copies of works by Biruni, Ibn Sina, Mirzo Ulugbek, Parso and others. It is also planned to cover rare manuscripts held in other libraries and museums in India.
