Dedicated to the unknown, unsung Bhils, Rajputs and all Hindu ancestors of Mewar,who sacrificed livelihood and life and yet stood like a rock with their Maharanas for one thousand years.
Bappa Rawal : The real father of Hindustan
ABOUT THE BOOK - MAHARANAS
This book on MAHRANAS is going to become as sacred as scriptures in each Hindu home. The book that will destroy the lies woven around the glorious Hindu resistance for one thousand uninterrupted years to Islamic invaders of various hues.
The book that will reveal the truth of the greatest Dynasty, not just the greatest Hindu Dynasty, not just the greatest Dynasty of Bharat, but the greatest Dynasty in the world: The Sisodiyas of Mewad.
The Avataras who fought invaders non-stop for 1000 years, who endured all hardships, who refused to surrender even when their kingdom was encircled by enemies on all sides, who lived like nomads, but refused to give up. The Dynasty because of which Kesaria still flies on the sacred land of Bharat.
The book questions the whitewash of the deeds and lives of the great Maharanas, especially the greatest of them; Maharana Pratap Singh.
Written by a passionate practicing surgeon who brings the same incisiveness, exactness, and accuracy to the study of the history of this great Dynasty, as his profession.
The book that will arouse in you the sleeping kshatriya, and will remind you that honour and pride do not define the man, they are the man.
