Excerpts from SonaVarnee:
 
I have tried my level best to keep the historical facts (as is) when (describing/writing the stuff in this novel by) analyzing the changing times (history) and importance of values in the life and documenting the same in this novel, which reminds the political incidents happened in last three and a half centuries, in the land of Saurashtra – Gujarat and effects of (all the incidents) on the lives of the people.
Due to the political boundaries and the social and political situation of that times, Gujarat (Tal Gujarat area) and Kathiawad used to be separate states for centuries, still the culture and Gujaratiness remained as is (and the same) in the people along with ethical and moral values (in that era also). During sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the capital of Gujarat was Amdavad (Ahmedabad) and was ruled by Sultan and counts (suba) of Badshah (the mughal emperor of Delhi); and in Kathiawad (Kathiyawad / Kathiawar / Kathiyawar) there were small and big states, which wre ruled by Kings and Thakors.
As the rulers of the states of Kathiawad (Kathiyawad / Kathiawar / Kathiyawar) have ruling under the Sultan of Amdavad (Ahmedabad) and counts of Badshah (known as Shahi Suba); they (Kings and Thakors) have to pay them Khandani (a kind of tax). Though they all (kings and thakors) were independent on their own and were allowed to expand the boundaries of their kingdoms by using their army. Due to these kind of battles, based on political and other reasons, even the Sultan of Ahmedabad and Counts of Badshah also needed to came to battlefield against the rulers of various states of Kathiawad (Kathiyawad / Kathiawar / Kathiyawar). The people had to suffer a lot in all these.
In addition, the terror of Baharavatiyas, thieves and DhadPadus were there on the regular bases and the innocent people from villages had to suffer them as well. One of the Brahmin and two of the wealthy farmers' family had to pass through rough times due to these political wars and terrorism. They, then shifted to the other area. By the medium of them (and their ethical lives) I have tried to show the lights and the dark, bravery and weakness of the respective times. In addition, I have tried all to keep the historical values in this novel which explores political incidents of the respective times. I have complete faith that this informative and intereting story will be liked by the quality readers.
