Babar Nama – e-text

Bāburnāma (Chagatai/Persian: بابر نامہ;´, literally: “Book of Babur” or “Letters of Babur”; alternatively known as Tuzk-e Babri) is the name given to the memoirs of Zāhir ud-Dīn Mohammad Bābur (1483-1530), founder of the Mughal Empire and a great-great-great-grandson of Timur. It is an autobiographical work, originally written in the Chagatai language, known to Babur as “Turki” (meaning Turkic), the spoken language of the Andijan-Timurids. Because to Babur’s cultural origin, his prose is highly Persianized in its sentence structure, morphology, and vocabulary,[1] and also contains many phrases and smaller poems in Persian. During Emperor Akbar’s reign, the work was completely translated to Persian by a Mughal courtier, Abdul Rahīm, in AH 998 (1589-90).[2]
