Excerpts from RajSattaNa Rang:
During the times, when the grip of the sultan of Amdavad (Ahmedabad) and
the Peshwas (who came afterwards) got loosen at the threshold of eighteenth century
till the rise of "East India Company" (and its activities in the respective areas);
the small and tiny kingdoms (and their kings counts) speeded throughout
Kathiawar (Kathiyawad / Kathiyawad / Kathiyawar); became uncontrolled.
They kept fighting to expand the boundaries of their ruling areas.
Due to these fights which happened to took place almost daily,
boundaries of none of the kingdom was safe.
That's why the time of terror for the public was very dark and sad.
The role played by the state of Jamnagar, which was well set during that;
with stable political ruling and strong army, is interesting.
The great politican, who was also the owner of utmost bravery and wisdom,
Meru Khawas (Meru Khavas), one of the commandants (of Jamnagar state) became
the most powerful authority in the state of jamnagar. He have expanded the
boundary of the state of Jamnagar by keeping Jam Lakhaji - his master and
Jam Jasaji under his own observation, to overcome all of the traces,
which can challenge his ultimate power. (In addition) the commandant
Meru Khawas who was shining like a star, have crafted so many chapters for the
history (to be written in future), all of them represents the political
environment of the respective time(s).
The role played by Meru khawas (Meru Khavas) in developing friendship
and rivalry both, with the remarkable authorized persons of
who shared his time; like brave Diwan Amarji of Junagadh, Thakor Bhakumbhaji
of Gondal, Rana Sartanji of Porbandar, Thakor Vajesinh of Bhavnagar,
Rajraysinh (second) of Dhangadhra, Thakor Aliyaji of Morbi,
Paddhari, Jamadar Fatehmamad –commandant of kachchh;
is remarkable in the history of Jamnagar.
All of these (mentioned) rulers or authorized persons have shared the same
time span of Vikram Samvat 1750 to Vikram Samvat 1860, roughly a century.
The history of that time proves that it all these brave warriors have not
shared the same time span, then the map of Kathiyawad was definitely
I have weaved the details about the political incidents happened during that
time by referring a lot of material already written about the role played by
Meru Khawas (Meru Khavas) along with the remarkable authorized persons mentioned.
The extra ordinary works done by Meru Khawas (Meru Khavas) in his life were also
unforgettable and remarkable like the history of Jamnagar state, one of the most
important state in Kathiyawad during that times.
Clever, cruel, brave and power hungry commandant Meru Khawas (Meru Khavas)
met his death in Vikaram Samvat 1860. Jam Jasaji king of Jamnagar in that time got
dead in Vikram Samvat 1871 and his younger brother Jam Sataji was crowned.
Jam Sataji was also got dead in a short period without having any son.
The clever queen Aachhooba have adopted prince Ranmalji who belong to one of the cousins
(of Jam Jasaji’s family) Foolani family as the successor.
In the same times, the superior powerful authority (named) "East India Company" have entered
(the area of Kathiyawad); which had change the royal times of Kathiyawad .
I have tried to stick to the historical truths only, in this novel which represents the
historical the facts about Kathiyawad – especially Jamnagar of the respective times.
I believe that my this
novel will also be loved by the readers like my other
