Q.

The conquest of the Deccan, to which, Aurangzeb devoted the last 26 years of his life, was in many ways a Pyrrhic victory, costing an estimated hundred thousand lives a year during its last decade of futile chess game warfare. This arrogance to expand his kingdom at the expense of so many lives has earned him the "worst Mughal Emperor" tag to him. comment

Deccan is the base of Indian civilisation and deeply rooted.. None can invade deccan due to its cultural roots. Even during colonial era and post independent, it is regional parties that is ruling the region.

Auragzeb was one of those who explored the Deccan and failed..

The conquest of Deccan was would have been complete, had it not been for Shivaji Maharaj and his Maratha empire.
Now, it seems that, vote bank politics is supporting Auargzeb's (self appointed) successors to achieve his unfinished dream of conquest of Deccan.
