The Chronicles of Mewar and Maharana Pratap

Abhishek Bose | Bandana Singh [2]

Abstract: The battle of Haldighati is one of the most fiercest battles ever fought in the annals of Indian History and it truly showcases the valour and bravery of the Rajput clan and their love for their motherland. The battle was fought near the village of Haldighati in Rajasthan over 400 years ago, when the glory of the Mughal empire was at its peak and Akbar, the Mughal emperor dreamt of Unified India under the Mughal flagship. The Mughals though large in numbers and artillery faced the mighty Sisodias of Mewar, a Rajput clan. The Mughals won the battle after a hard won fight, but Rana Pratap who led the Rajput side managed to escape and for the remaining years of his life played a cat and mouse game of great intent and innovation with Akbar and his commanders. Akbar used all the resources at his disposal to destroy Rana Pratap but all in vain. The mighty emperor failed to capture the valiant Rana and Mewar was the only kingdom during Akbar's time to remain free of Mughal Domination.
