Excerpts from Shauryapratapi Chandravansh:
  In this novel which covers the lifespan and ruling times (of the Chanravanshi Kshatirya caln of Bharat) from the found of Chanravansh and king, Chandra himself to Jam Rawal (Jam Raval) who was 170th descendent (came after 170 generations) of him, and Jam Jam Hameerji (Jam Hamirji). I have tried my level best to keep the historical importance and values of the true events The way to the ancient most history is like a dark and tough path which leads to more than the thousands of years. There are things like writings on the stones, ancient encyclopedia, coins, old sculptures, monuments and much more, which found really helpful to explore the history. The problem is they mention the detains in the different versions (there is no single source of the stuff found – which is authenticated by all – at list for some of the facts it is the only truth). And there are disputes found in the historians about the same, obviously. The only way to know about the very ancient times, when at some moment the Chandravansh came to existence, is Puranas (or PuranGranathas). The Puranas, which are able to keep their existence after the long long times, also in the form of “Dharma Katha” (Religious holy stuff). The PuranGranthas like HariVansh, contains the biographies of the kings who have rule before the centuries of Christ (i.e. in B. C.). In some of the ancient tales about (some of) the kings the inserts found added, which are full of amazing fantasies along with the realities. Still the respected tales show the importance of values in the society, the political boundaries, hopes and desires of the man, the documentation of the progress and setbacks, of the respected times. There are main three clans or dynasties found in the Royal bloodlines of Kshatriya, they are: Sooryavanshi (suryavanshi), ChandraVanshi and AgniVanshi. The details about the lineages of all the three clans, especially for SooryaVanshi (SuryaVanshi) and CharaVanshi dynasties are found well documented in Puranas. It is believed that Lord Brahma is the founder of the universe and hence the father of the mankind. The lineage go ahead like: from AdiNarayana (AdiNarayana) to Brahma, Brahma to Marichi, Marichi to Kashyap and Kasyap’s son was Soorya (Surya) and his decendents are known as SooryaVanshi (SuryaVanshi). The Kshatriyas who came to existence because of the power of Mantras (the holy prayers by the saints) from the YagnaKund (YajnaKund) are known as AgniVanshi. And the the Chandravanshis, whose historical facts are explored in this novel, came to existence this way. From AdiNarayan (AdiNarayana) to Brahma, Brahma to Atri, Atri have had three children: Dattatrey, Durvasa and Chandra. Chandra have accepted the role (and duties) of king and his descendents are known as Chandravanshi Kshatriyas. The tale of the founder of Chandravansh, Chandra himself is written amazingly in Puranas. Though, there is nothing to get shocked from that. Because we cannot even image the society, lifestyle and surrounding (of the earth or even universe, including physical layout and environment) of ancient times (before thousands of years). That’s why sometimes the tales of that time may found unreal, and it is obvious. But as it is well documented (holy) stuff; which is accepted by Bharatiya (Indian) people with utmost respect, we must have to accept it anyway. The personality of brave and impressive king Chandra was exactly suitable to the name given to him – Chandra. And the tale of coming into existence of his son Budh is also mysterious and interesting. The tales of Chandra and Budh (or Budha) have been written by the Purana-writers by talking so much interest in the same. This way Chandra’s son was Budh and Budh's son was Pururava. The great king Yadu have came after the seven generations of Pururava and his discendents are known as YaduVanshi kshatiryas (and the clan also started knowing as Yadukul or Yadavakul). Yadu’s some was Vrajinwan, from him to the thirty first descendent Satvat, no specific details are found. Though Vrushni who was fourty first descendent of Chandra, is found well documented about his life span and some of the events of his kingdoms are also referred. After his name the YaduVashi kashatriya family lineage got the name "Vrushni" (Vrushnee) also. Vrushni's son was Sumitra and the thirteen descendent of Vrushni and hence the fifty fourth descendent of Chandra himself of king SurSen. He have expanded his kingdom in the areas of Ganga and Yamuna and named the land as "Sursen Desh". Sursen had nine sons and five daughters. The eldest of the sons was Vasudev. Vasudev's wife Devaki, who was sister of Kans, had given birth to Krushna (or Krishna) who is considered and worshiped as the God and called as Lord Shri Krushan (or Lord Shri Krishna). One of the daughters of SurSen was adopted by a king named KuntiBhoj (also known as KunteeBhoj) and she was grown up by him, hence she was known as "Kunti" (or Kuntee). Kunti got married to Pandu – the king of Hastinapur and his five sons were the Pandavs (or Pandavas). Vasudev got married to Devaki – the daughter of King Ugrasen. Kans, the cruel son of Ugrasen, have declared himself as the king o fMahtura forcefully, and crowned himself in existence of his father. Cruel and terrorist, Kans, have jailed his sister Devaki and her husband Vasudev and Shri Krushna (Lord Shri Krishna) was born (in the jail). Lord Shri Krushna (Lord Shri Krishna) who is worshipped by crores of Bharityas (Indians) as the God, was fifty sixth descendent of Chandra who have killed his maternal uncle Kans. Afterwards to get rid of the attacks of enemies he have left Mathura along with relatives and people (a large crowd of shepherds, Ahirs and Yaduvanshis) and get settled in Saurashtra. At west coast (of Saurashtra) he have established a city named Dwarika and crowned himself with the name "king Ranchhod" and ruled the kingdom. Shri Krushna (Shri Krishna)'s son was Pradyumna and Pradyumna's son was Aniruddha who got married to Usha, the daughter of Banasur (Banasura) – the king of Misar (Egypt). As Banasur (Banasura) was not having any son, he (Aniruddha) have inherited the kingdom from him and get settled there only. Aniruddha's son was Vajranabh. After the battle of Yadavasthali (or Yadavasthalee) in which the entire Yadukul was finished off. Vajranabh came to Saurashtra and took chare of the throne and kingdom. Vajranabh have reestablished the new city of Dwarika, near the old one and build the great holy temple of Lord Ranchhodrayji. (This way) The family lineage of Chandravash was continued from Vajranabh, son of Aniruddha who was saved from the internal war of the family. His one hundred fifteenth descendent was King GarvGod (or GarvaGod). Garvgod’s son was DeviSinh (or DeveeSinh). His son was SurSen. Sursen’s son was VikarmSen and VikarmSen’s son was king Devendra. Devendra have ruled Miser (like his ancestors). But after the death of Devendra the history of Chandravashi Kshatriya rulers took a new turn. The four sons of king Devedra named Aspat, Narpat, Gajpat and Bhoopat (or Bhupat) have transferred to Bharat (India) to save themselves and their religion from the khalifas of Arabastan where the religion of Islam was at rise. From the four sons of Devendra, the eldest Aspat have converted himself and became a Musalman. Other three sons and their descendents are started knowing by different lineages. They were wsoreaded in Sindh, Kachchh an Saurashtra and established their own kingdoms. The descendents of the main clan was known as "Sama" and then Jadeja. Jadeja (family) name is in existence till date. This way after ruling Sindh, the one hundred seventeenth descendent from Chandra and one hundred fifteenth from Lord Shri Krushna (Lord Shri Krishna), Jam Ravalji (Jam Rawalji) have ruled Kachchh. Jam Hamirji (Jam Hameerji) was also from the same time and this novel explore the history till them. So the history of Chandravansh is documented in this historical novel (from the very beginning) to the 15th century. Obviously for all the historical events all the historians are not having the same vision always. Because, about the historical evets , the proofs and the assumptions both are considered equally important. If it is found that I have tried my best to keep the historical values and facts with hard work; I will feel that my efforts have been considered. For this novel I got the help from authenticated encyclopedias of history, the stuff found written in different books (containing information about lineages of Chandravansh). The history of country is mostly found in the poems by Vahivancha Bhat and Charan poets. Though as the history found in that format is found mixed with added fantasies and own thoughts (of the poet or the keeper), and it makes some information not even trustable also. Still the Vahivancha Bhat and Charan poets also deserve the gratitude ad respect as equally as Purana writers, for keeping the most valuable history and make it available. I am thankful to all the authors, Vahivancha Bhat and Charan Poets whose literature I have used in order to collect the information, I respect them all. By accepting my novels about Sooryavansh (Suryavansh) and other (historical novels), the readers and experts have inspired me. I am thankful to them and shri Dharnjibhai Shah who is running Navbharat Sahitya Mandir and who have published this valuable novel. In future, whenever I get chance, I will write more novels about the Chandravanshi kings (especially which are not covered in this novel) by trying to keep the historical values and with all my interest, research and hard work. With these words I am presenting this first novel of Chandravansh historical novels series, which is complete in itself. I am feeling glad on this occasion.
