Persian influence on Indian miniature painting stems from the fact that Humanyun brought two of Persian empires best painters to India after his exile. Though very similar to Indian miniatures of the Mughal era these paintings are bolder in color scheme and have figures which are "Dedh Chashm" (One and a half eyed) unlike the Indian paintings which are generally one eyed. The Mughal style evolved as a result of a happy synthesis of the indigenous Indian style of painting and the Safavid school of Persian painting.

Jaimini, a portmanteau of "Jaipur" and "miniature art", is a coming together of not just words, but worlds too.
