Walk across Rajasthan and you’d know instantly that there are and have been many maharajas in Rajasthan. But Maharana? Well, there can only be one. And that is the Maharana of Udaipur. Brian Masters has crafted out a fascinating narrative of the 1500-year old traditions of Udaipur and valour of the dynasty’s Maharana.
The book Includes accounts of the legendary Kumbha, Sanga, Rana Pratap and their illustrious descendants. It also explores the relevance of the dynasty in present-day India. Believe it or not! This dynasty is the oldest serving dynasty. It spans 76 generations and some 1500 years. And still leads the modern era by example.
With photographs and illustrations from family archives and collections, this history of the erstwhile princely state of Udaipur evokes the glory and grandeur of the Rajput courts. It ends with a description of the palace, a splendid example of Rajput architecture which combines building with poetry.
Eternal Mewar is proud to have been able to inspire and support the writing of such great work. As much as it is a story of the dynasty, it does mean a lot to the body to have it documented and preserved for centuries to come. Full of many interesting episodes that enliven this historical account, the book is out in hardcover for you to read. Grab your copy now by simply leaving us a comment here with your email id!
