In this novel focusing the history of Mevad (Mewad / Mewar),
the historical events ae incidents are documented From ruling time of
Maharana AmarSinh, who belong to Sooryavanshi (Suryavanshi / Sooryavanshee / Suryavanshee)
Sisodiya Rajput (Kshatriya) Royal blood line (Vikram Samvat 1616 – Vikram Samvat 1676)
to his 19th Successor king Maharana FatehSinh (Birth: Vikram Samvat 1906; Crowning 1941).
This novel covers the span of three centuries.
In my Mevad Granthavali (Mewad Granthavali / Mewar Granthavali / Mewad Itihas Shreni –
Series of historical novels on Mewad and Sooryavansh), six books are already published.
They are Jay Chittod, ChittodNee Rangarjana, Mevad No Kesari, Mevad Na Maharathee,
ShauryaPratapi Maharana PratapSinh and DeshGaurav BhamaShah. This is the last book
in the series (of historical novels about Mewad). It is in the continuity of the
previous novels of the same series, though it is complete in itself.
The glorious history of the Sooryavanshi (Suryavanshi) Sisodiya kings who are the
gems of Bharatiya Rajput Clan (Indian Kshatriyas) and are the legends of Bharatiya
(Indian) bravery, Power and the religious respect, faith, feelings; and the history
of their fights for the motherland and values and (which resulted into) independence;
is the prideful inheritance (for the Bharatiya MahaPraja – People of India) of inspirable values.
A lot of genius historians did great efforts to keep the most valuable history
of ours intact. The western historians like Col. Tod (Colonel James Tod) also
have really hard and remarkable work to search and keep the history ad its values alive and intact.
The history of Sooryavanshi (Suryavanshi) Kshatriyas is ancient.
Maharana Bapa Rawal (Bappa Rawal / Bapa Raval / Bappa Raval) who came after
Maharana KanakSen and have founded the kingdom of Mewad (Mewar / Mevad / Mevaad)
and Chittod (Chittaud / Chittor / Chittaur) as its capital. The historians who did
efforts to keep the history before and after that times needs to be appreciated equally;
because these efforts have made the history alive and available. It is almost compulsory
to have disputes when the history is searched. But most of the historians have the same
thoughts as the main and basic facts. Amongst these great historians Kaviraj Muraridanji,
Mahakavi Chand Badai, Historian Col. Tod and Mahamahopadhyay Kaviraj Shyamalddasji are
well respects and remarkable.
For my this novel and other novels of Mevad (Mewad / Mewar) historical series, focusing
the history of Sooryavanshi (Suryavanshi) Kshatriya king; I have referred the
encyclopedias by these historians. Especially VeerViod Mahagranth by Kaviraj Shyamaldasji.
I am considering it as my good luck that I got the opportunity to document the
history hundreds of generations and thousands of years, at my level. It contains
the stuff from Bhagvan Vivaswan soorya (Bhavan Vivaswan Surya - is he soul of
Indian bravery and the ancient most Sooryavanshi Kshatriya – the clan is named after)
to king Sumitra, Sumitra to king KanakSen, KanakSen to Maharana Bapa Rawal
(Maharan Bappa Rawal), Bapa Rawal (Bappa Rawal) to Maharana PratapSinh
and Maharana AmarSinh (son of Maharana PratapSinh) to Maharana FatehSinh.
One (great) chapter of Rajputi bravery and their values and history of the same;
got over when the britishers took command of Bharat (started ruling India).
The qualities of bravery, sacrifices, keeping up the values, power an authorities,
have stopped shining then onwards. But still I got a little ahead till (the times of)
Rana FatehSinh, the ruler of Mevad (Mewad / Mewar) to explore the detailed history,
in this novel.
I am thankful to respected Shri Dhanrajbhai Kothari of Shri Laxmi Pustak Bhandar,
who have given me the opportunity to write historical novels about the history
of Sooryavansh (Suryavansh) and Mevad (Mewad / Mewar), and publishing my this book
and the others the Mevad Granthavali.
I am feeling glad to represent this novel in front of the readersm with regards.
