Amir Khusro was a prolific Persian poet (1253 – 1325 AD) associated with royal courts of more than seven rulers of Delhi Sultanate. Amir Kushro was a genius of those times. A very versatile person, he was a soldier, a composer of poetry in Arabic, Persian, Urdu and a diplomat, shrewd in court matters and was also a good musician. He accompanied Allaudin Khilji, when he conquered the Yadava kingdom of Devagiri.

As a result of fusion of musical thoughts of Amir Khusro, many innovations took place. One of them was the present day Khayal that evolved around the fourteenth century. Amir Khusro wrote Tarikh-i-Alai or Khazain-ul-Fatuh. In this book he gave an account of conquest of Alauddin. He wrote another book called Ashiqa, which contains the love story of Deval Rani and Khizr Khan. In his Nur-Siphir or nine spikes, he gave the story of Sultan Mubarak Shah. He also lived in the court of Ghias-ud-din Tughlaq and wrote Tughlugnama. Khusro is also known as Tuti-i-Hind or Parrot of India.
