In those days, the Mughal empire was at its zenith and famous in the world for its magnificence and wealth. Princesses were adorned with diamonds, dressed in clothes embroidered in gold and showered with exquisite luxury. They were the true patrons of art and loved books.

The filigree of Zebunissa's life holds debates about her religious beliefs. The prism of her knowledgeexpanded to the study of calligraphy, Sufism and poetry. By giving herself a pen name Makhfi "The hidden," which had become an amusing and paradoxical disguise, she used it to moderate the 'Light of the World'.
