Around 400 years back, with the might of their huge armies,
foreign forces, one after another, were invading the Indian territories.
Afghans, Turks and then the Mughals...all had one burning desire...
establishing their control over a prosperous India. But even in these
hard times, there was one province which gave a bold fight to these
enemies and that was the gleaming rajya of the Rajputs- Mewar! For the
rajputs, no sacrifice weighed more importance than freedom.
despite this unprecedented courage, Mughal forces often dominated over
the courageous Rajputs and it seemed the desires of these enemies would
be fulfilled before long. In this troubled time, the soil of Mewar gave
birth to its bravest son, Maharana Pratap who became an emblem for
courage for the entire country. This is the story of a great warrior
king, who in personal life is an ideal son to his father, a loving son
to his step mother who hates him, a soothing leader to his people in
their difficult times and trials. He is most surprisingly the man who
only had love for his brothers, who in turn were either filled with
jealousy, or hatred as they wanted themselves to be the rulers of Mewar.
Many of these brothers went in the service of Akbar, but as history
proves, his love would change his jealous brothers melodramatically in
times of War.
The story of Maharana Pratap is not just the story of
king who was a great warrior and who lead the army of his kingdom to
victory against the armies of another empire.
The story of Maharana
Pratap is also not the story of a Rajput prince, who got his throne as a
birthright from his father and ruled their state as a king in comfort.
This story is actually the journey of a boy Pratap, who much later would
earn his title Maharana, through his own deeds and dedication.
