Udaipur has always been one of the finest piece of nature’s beauty. It always fascinates with its lakes, palaces, gardens and what not. But Brian Masters unfolds another facet of this City of Lakes in his newly launched book “Maharana”. In this book, he writes about the rulers of Udaipur who founded this city and ruled it for a long period stretching for nearly one thousand five hundred years in unbroken succession.
This is the first account of the long and colorful history of one very powerful State that has given many legends to India, foremost among them being Maharana Pratap. The author presents vivid portraits of such rulers that continue to inspire many lives and their influence on art and architecture of India. Despite the evolution of the State of Mewar from an independent ‘Princely State’ into a part of the democratic Republic of India, the rulers have not forgotten their vow to look after the people of this land on behalf of the local deity to whom it finally belonged. They are still the ‘custodians’ of the pledge and promise made by their ancestors to their guru.
