    mughal empire died due to Aurangzeb, Rajput and Pashtuns.

    you see it was only Aurangzeb who alloted large numbers of pashtuns into mughal army and nobility before that mughals used rajputs to counter Afghan influenza (suri).

    but in shoort time due to his interference into Marvad succession at lest 30% of His army, Rajput re bailed togather and started a war on mughal empire.

    in pashtun area one mughal ooficer raped a pashtun girl and his tribe and fellow tribes started ther own rebellion, other 30% of mughal army , pashtuns also joined this rebellion and to countrt this king sent 40,000 strong mughal army but all massacred by Pashtun tribes.

    these 2 blunders and death of 40,000 elite strong men destroyed mughal army. bajro just attacked at the right time.

    Ya naturally you will think that. You do not need to read history of other kings before Zeroing on Akabar. Had it been Aurangzeb in place of Akbar, he would have been your choice.

    Chandragupta Maurya is the best one, he was the first ruler of the Mauryan Empire and his children and grandchildren made India one of the world's greatest empires during their time.

    I am surprised no one has mentioned Bindusara here. A lot of what Ashoka inherited was actually put together by Bindusara. He ascended the throne at the age of 22 and brought almost the entire peninsula under control, save for the Tamil Kingdoms who had friendly treaties with the Maurya empire.
