The book is based on historical sources and contemporary court chronicles and also draws on Mewari ballads, folklore and legends, this deeply researched yet accessibly written biography of Maharana Pratap is a compelling read.
Writing a book on Pratap is tough, in a climate where histories are being re-written, whitewashed and saffronised. Hooja manages to write a biography that is critical, restrained, yet captures the essence of the character. She ties together several narratives, folklore, and popular imagination to write an immensely readable account, peppered with poetry, and making the life and times of the Rajput warrior prince come alive. She gives you a backstory to the region of Mewar, its relationship with the Mughals and other princely states, drawing out nuances of battle, personal relationships, conflicts and economics. It is a small book– I read it in a few hours, but one that I enjoyed.
However, the book is not well written. The author has dropped facts and figures here and there with no narrative to bind them. James Todd's "The Annals of Mewar"(a shorter and selected version of his Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan) is a much better book and would recommend it very strongly.
