Maharana Pratap: The Invincible Warrior

The invincible Warrior

11 October 2018

Rima Hooja

Using historical sources, contemporary court chronicles, Mewari ballads, folk tales and legends, the historian Rima Hooja retells the life story of Maharana Pratap, the Rajput warrior who kept up a fierce guerrilla campaign against the Mughal forces of Akbar for years. Hooja reconsiders questions that have captured the public imagination for over four hundred years, such as who really won the Battle of Haldighati, how Pratap managed to elude the Mughal army for so long and why he refused to broker a peace despite facing such insurmountable odds.
