Overheard in the Classroom

28 Jul

Student: Didn’t the Ottoman Empire conquer India too?

Professor: No, the Mughal Empire and Ottoman were contemporaries, so there was an overlap in time but not in territory. The Ottoman’s didn’t expand past the territory of the current state of Azerbaijan and parts of Iran.

Student: Oh, so the Ottoman Empire just came to the left of the Mughal Empire?

Professor: (Confused) Um, sure…

Yes, they walk among us and they graduate with little certificates that make them think they’re smart.
