Babur,The first Moghul emporer

Today I Read a piece of article on Babur in Economist.he had a autobiography called "Baburnama".The article mention about Babur's governing style and trade policies during his rule etc.
But fascinating thing is he hated India and said it is an  uncharismatic land contrary to what western people thought.
       "Hindustan is a country of few charms. There are no good-looking people, there is no social intercourse, no receiving or paying of visits, no genius or manners. In its handicrafts there is no form or symmetry, method or quality. There are no good horses, no good dogs, no grapes, musk-melons or first-rate fruits, no ice or cold water, no good bread or food cooked in the bazaars, no hot baths, no colleges, no candles, torches or candlesticks."
