Hint: 1) He was the ninth sultan of the Slave dynasty. 2) He was purchased as a slave by Iltutmish. 3) He launched the Persian festival of Navroz in India. Complete step by step solution: What? 1) The first Sultan of Delhi to introduce the art of 'Sijda' was Ghiyasuddin Balban (1266-1287). 2) He began Sijda (prostration) and Paibos as a regular form of the king's salutation. To receive the Sultan, people had to kneel in Sijda and touch the ground with their heads. 3) After Razia, he was the next notable ruler. 4) In the Mamluk dynasty, the ninth sultan was the wazir of Iltutmish 's grandson, Nasir-ud-din-Mahmud. Born of Turkish descent, his original name was Bahauddin. He was bought by Iltutmish as a slave. He went rapidly up the ranks. When & Where? 1) Balban was born, like his master Iltutmish, into the Turkish family of the tribe of Ilbari. 2) In his early youth, he was captured by the Mongols and was sold to a slave trader named Khwaja Jamal-ud-din. 3) He had him taken to Delhi, where Iltutmish had bought him. Iltutmish was very impressed with Balban's intellect and skill during his stay in Delhi and enrolled him as a member of the famous crops of the forty slaves. 4) He was promoted to the post of Amir-i-Shikar (Lord of the Hunt) during Raziya Sultan's reign. Why? Balban was a stern monarch, and the emblem of the emperor's austerity and stern obedience was his court. Which is why he demanded that the people prostrate themselves before the king. He set down serious sentences for the least of the offenses of his courtiers. Note: One of the greatest Sultans of Delhi was Balban. For a long period of forty years, twenty as prime minister and twenty as sultan, he led the fate of the Sultanate to his credit. In India, he launched the Persian festival of Navroz.
