Prithviraj Chauhan




Prithviraj Chauhan
Prithviraj Chauhan was born at Ajaymeru (Ajmer) in 1166 A.D. His father was Someshwar Chauhan and mother Karpuri Devi, a Kalachuri (Chedi) princess, daughter of Achalaraja of Tripuri.
Muhammad Ghori attacked India multiple times. First time he was routed in present day Gujarat by Rajputs. Mularaja-II was not even a teen yet and his mother organized the defences of Pattan. Battle was fought at Kayadara near Mount Abu, in 1178 A.D. and Ghori was resoundingly defeated. After this defeat he never entered India through Gujarat. In first battle of Taraori in 1191 Prithviraj Chauhan's cavalry charged and routed the Ghurid cavalry and captured Ghori. Ghori begged for his life. Prithviraj allowed him to go despite his generals asking him not to do so.


Prithviraj Chauhan lived at Taragarh fort which was also known as Ajaymeru after which the town of Ajmer got its name.

Following year Ghori came again. Prithviraj advanced with his army and sent a letter to Ghori. In this letter Ghori was asked to return as he had been defeated the previous year and was spared his life. Ghori replied that he was in India on the orders of his brother, Ghiasuddin, and that he could only retreat after he got a word from his brother. This letter was sent in the evening and after sending the letter Ghori moved his camp back a few kilometers to feign retreat. On receiving this letter and seeing Muhammad move his camp back Prithviraj assumed that Ghori was not interested in fighting. Ghori also knew that rajputs did not fight in the night and only started fighting after sun had come up. (This is an ancient Kshatriya practice e.g Mahabharata was also fought mostly in day time). Ghori treacherously attacked in the early morning hours when Prithviraj and his army were sleeping and was able to win this war

The founder of the Gahadwala line was Govindchandra Gahadwala. He was an astute ruler and ruled from Kannauj. Most of North India, including the university town of Nalanda was a part of his kingdom. He stoutly defended his kingdom from further Muslims incursions. He instituted a tax for this purpose which was called Turushka Danda (i.e. tax to fight the Turushkas or Turks). His grandson was Jaichandra Gahadwala (Rathod) who played a tragic role in Indian History.

The Story of Prithviraj Chouhan and Mahmud Ghori

In Jaichand's days, a rival Rajput clan had established itself in Delhi (Pithoragarh). The ruler there was Prithviraj Chouhan. Pritiviraj was a romantic, chivalrous and an extremely fearless person. After ceaseless military campaigns, Pritiviraj extended his original kingdom of Sambhar (Shakambara) to Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Eastern Punjab. He ruled from his twin capitals at Delhi and Ajmer. His fast rise caught the envy of the then powerful ruler Jaichandra Gahadwala and there was a lot of ill-feeling between the two.

Prithiviraj's Love for Sanyogita - Jaichandra's Daughter

The story of Prithviraj's bold exploits spread far and wide in the country and he was the center of much discussion in the circle of the nobility. Sanyogita, the daughter of Jaichandra Gahadwala fell secretly in love with Prithiviraj and she started a secret poetic correspondence with him. Her father the haughty Jaichandra got wind of this and he decided to teach his daughter and her upstart lover a lesson. So he arranged a Swayamwara (a ceremony where a bride can select her husband from the assembled princes. She had the right to garland any prince and she became his queen. This is an ancient Hindu custom among Royalty). Jaichandra invited all the big and small princes of the country to Kannauj for the royal Swayamwara. But he deliberately ignored Prithiviraj.

To add insult to injury, he even made a statue of Prithiviraj and kept him as a dwarpala (doorman).

The Elopement of Sanyogita with Prithviraj

Prithviraj got to know of this and he confided his plans to his lover.
On the said day, Sanyogita walked down the aisle where the royals had assembled and bypassed all of them only to reach the door and garland the statue of Pritiviraj as a doorman. The assemblage was stunned at this brash act of hers. But what stunned them and her father Jaichandra was the next thing that happened.

Prithiviraj who was hiding behind the statue, also in the garb of a doorman, whisked Sanyogita away and put her up on his steed to make a fast getaway to his capital at Delhi

Chouhan-Rathod Warfare Leads to Weakening of both Rajput Kingdoms

Jaichandra and his army gave earnest chase and in the resultant string of battles between the two kingdoms fought between 1189 and 1190, both of them sufferred heavily. While this drama was being enacted, another ruler also named Mahmud who was from Ghori in Afghanistan had grown powerful and had captured Ghazni and subsequently attacked the Ghaznavid Governor of Punjab and defeated him. The kingdom of Mahmud Ghori now stretched up to the domains of Prithiviraj Chouhan. A clash was inevitable

The 1st Battle of Tarain 1191 C.E. - Victory of Prithiviraj Chouhan

Mahmud Ghori threw the gauntlet by laying siege to the fortress of Bhatinda in East Punjab which was on the frontier of Prithiviraj's domains. Prithviraj's appeal for help from his father-in-law was scornfully rejected by the haughty Jaichandra. But undaunted Prithviraj marched on to Bhatinda and met his enemy at a place called Tarain (also called Taraori) near the ancient town of Thanesar. In face of the persistent Rajput attacks, the battle was won as the Muslim army broke ranks and fled leaving their general Mahmud Ghori as a prisoner in Pritiviraj's hands.

Mahmud Ghori was brought in chains to Pithoragarh - Prithviraj's capital and he begged his victor for mercy and release. Prithviraj's ministers advised against pardoning the aggressor. But the chivalrous and valiant Prithviraj thought otherwise and respectfully released the vanquished Ghori.

The 2nd Battle of Tarain 1192 C.E. - Defeat of Prithiviraj Chouhan

The very next year Prithiviraj's gesture was repaid by Ghori who re-attacked Prithiviraj with a stronger army and guilfully defeated him by attacking the Rajput army before daybreak. (The Hindus incidentally followed a hoary practice of battling only from sunrise up to sunset. Before Sunrise and after Sunset there was to be no fighting- as per a time honoured battle code).The defeated Prithiviraj was pursued up to his capital and in chains he was taken as a captive to Ghor in Afghanistan.

The Blinding of Prithviraj


The story of Prithiviraj does not end here. As a prisoner in Ghor he was presented before Mahmud, where he looked Ghori straight into the eye


Ghori ordered him to lower his eyes, whereupon a defiant Prithiviraj scornfully told him how he had treated Ghori as a prisoner and said that the eyelids of a Rajputs eyes are lowered only in death.On hearing this, Ghori flew into a rage and ordered that Prithviraj's eyes be burnt with red hot iron rods

This heinous deed being done, Prithiviraj was regularly brought to the court to be taunted by Ghori and his courtiers. In those days Prithiviraj was joined by his former biographer Chand Bardai, who had composed a ballad-biography on Pritiviraj in the name of Prithviraj Raso (Songs of Prithviraj). Chand Bardai told Prithiviraj, that he should avenge Ghori's betrayal and daily insults.



The Blind Prithviraj Avenges the Injustice done to him

The two got an opportunity when Ghori announced a game of Archery. On the advice of Chand Bardai, Prithviraj, who was then at court said he would also like to participate. On hearing his suggestion, the courtiers guffawed at him and he was taunted by Ghori as to how he could participate when he could not see. Whereupon, Prithiviraj told Mahmud Ghori to order him to shoot, and he would reach his target.

Ghori became suspicious and asked Prithviraj why he wanted Ghori himself to order and not anyone else. On behlaf of Prithiviraj, Chand Bardai told Ghori that he as a king would not accept orders from anyone other than a king. His ego satisfied, Mahmud Ghori agreed.

On the said day, Ghori sitting in his royal enclosure had Prithiviraj brought to the ground and had him unchained for the event. On Ghori's ordering Prithviraj to shoot, we are told Prithiviraj turned in the direction from where he heard Ghori speak and struck Ghori dead with his arrow. This event is described by Chand Bardai in the couplet, "Dus kadam aggey, bees kadam daey, baitha hai Sultan. Ab mat chuko Chouhan, chala do apna baan." (Ten feet ahead of you and twenty feet to your right, is seated the Sultan, do not now miss him Chouhan, release your baan - arrow).


Thus ended the story of the brave but unrealistic Prithviraj Chouhan - the last Hindu ruler of Delhi. Delhi was to remain under Muslim rule for the next 700 years till 1857 and under British rule till 1947. Those few Hindus who came close to liberating Delhi during the seven centuries of Muslim rule were Rana Sanga in 1527, Raja (Hemu) Vikramaditya in around 1565 (2nd battle of Panipat), and Shrimant Vishwas Rao who was the Peshwa's son and was co-commander of the Maratha forces in the 3rd battle of Panipat in 1761. Metaphorically speaking, the next Hindu ruler to actually preside over Delhi was to be Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of Independent India (and Jawarharlal Nehru - who was the President's first Minister).

gomzy said...

I, being a follower of prithviraj chauhan and his thoughts, want to say to all readers here that prithviraj wasn't killed by mohummad ghauri. Even ghauri was killed by Maharaj Prithviraj Chauhan.
If I say about his death as per chand bardai's prithviraj raso, after killing ghauri by shooting an arrow racing across throat, prithvi and chand stabbed each other because they didn't want to die by ghauri's courtiers.

PLEASE don't say ever that king prithviraj chauhan was killed by ghauri... PRITHVI KILLED FUCKER GHAURI... THAT'S THE FACT....

SANYOGITA BECAME "SATI" AFTER SHE CAME TO KNOW ABOUT PRITHVI'S DEATH....

He was the only king who knows how to rule, how to fight, how to forgive his enemy.But the only mistake done by him was that he left gauri 17 times.and he was burried under the earth with his unique art of shabad bhedi vidya. A great solute to a great warrior.

Rishi Sharma said...

I do respect Prithviraj Chauhan as an individual for his bravery and feild craft but as a ruler I find him to be foolish. Dont mind guys as I too am a staunch follower of Prithvi's ideologies. It was just because of his egoistic pleasures to be regarded as a brave and large hearted king that he left a crook like Ghouri and sacrificed entire Hindu Community to the hands of Mughalsfor next 700 years. Today, if we try and look back to know the true and actual Hindustani/Bharat's culture, we will not find it anywhere as the same got overwhelmed and destroyed by Mughal culture over these 700 years.I still say that he was a awesome warrior but a irresponsible ruler.

Anonymous said...

Not he was, he is the greatest ruler ,who never back stabbed, and knew that he is a ruler not only by name,or by force but by his work and love towards his kingdom.I think his drawback was that he did the same mistake as his father did,his father also left Bhimdev because of his principle,he too got a chance but did'nt kill ghauri caz of principles caz he worked more with heart rather then brain.

Wish I would know some one as Prithviraj chauhan

Manish Thakur said...

Why is everyone so pleased with Prithvi Raj Chauhan. i have the opposite reaction. When he could have killed Ghauri, he did not - out of some misplaced valor. That lead to another encounter and his defeat. In the process, Hindus were enslaved by Muslims for SEVEN HUNDRED YEARS!!! Exactly where is the valor in that? Prithvi Raj Chauhan was a king and had a responsibility to his people. He should have defended them by killing Ghauri when he could. My big fear is that the modern Indian state is doing the same with Pakistan. We have beaten them so many times, only to let them off. They have to beat us ONCE, and we are gone for good. You know its true.

Dear citizens of India (irrespective of religion, caste, colour creed)
A brief note on Prithvi Raj Chauhan:
Prithviraj Chauhan was the last Hindu king to sit upon the throne of Delhi. It
was a known fact that Prithviraj was called as a tiger of Delhi.
Delhi continued to be under the control of muslim rulers untill the British
period.
Prithvi Raj rather sought his death himself than being killed by Ghori's army. Such was the life of this great warrior and
saviour of his subjects.
Even today Afghans vent their anger on Prithviraj's Grave by stabbing on it
through a rope & then pay accolades to their defeated king Ghori. It's a
pity that the Indian Government who is engaged in the construction work of a
war ravaged country has no time to pay honour or renovate the grave of a
Valiant King.Our honourable Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi had
time to visit Babur's grave and pay homage (if I may add, to please a section
of society) and not to our very own Indian.
It is not a matter of which caste he belonged to but what he did and who he was.
However he was for real and died and lived in way which is worth saving his
grave of malicious people.
Some part of Indian tax payer's income goes into the resurrection of
Afghanistan and we have the moral right to question the dilapidated state of
the grave. People who beat up the grave should come and see Humayun's tomb in
India a contrast in the treatment meted out and maintenance.
Those people who
challenge this story or say it is wrong, I have some news for them. In the year 2005 and 2006, some historians
from India visited Afghanistan and brought about some shocking news.

When they reached one spot in Ghazni they saw that all the locals were jumping,
kicking and spitting on a grave, infact to see that grave one had to jump on it
from the top, in such a manner that you fall directly on the gave disgracing
it, not just that a few meters ahead was another tomb were the people were
offering flowers and worshiping it. The Indian did not understand what was
going on and asked an explanation, but the Afghans were reluctant to tell
anything as they knew that he was Indian, but when he forced them, they told
him that, The grave they were spitting and kicking, is the gave of Prithviraj
Chauhan an India king from Delhi . They were spitting on the grave because they
were angry with him as he killed Afghan's King Mohammad Ghori 900 years ago . .
The inscription on Prithviraj chauhan tomb reads:
"Here lies the Kafer king of Delhi
The historians were shocked at this. Friends can you believe that our beloved
hero Prithviraj Chauhan who gave his life to protect our country, his grave is
in Ghazni and is disrespected till today. These are not the only people to have
witnessed a thing like this , there was another team form India who visited the
same site in Afghanistan and confirmed the news.
We must all do something about it. If we all get together we can bring pressure
on the government to bring back the grave of our national hero. How can we
Indians tolerate this?
Somehow the Present Government of India is not interested in bringing back
Prithviraj Chauhan grave , they don't consider it to be important & this news is not been given the required publicity.
Lets not forget that when another great King of India Shivaji Maharaj had
killed Abzalkhan (a moughal), he respected his remains and even built a
memorial in his fort to honor his dead body. Even Prithviraj use to honor the
enemies remains. Indian Kings like Prithviraj Chauhan, Shivaji Maharaj, Rana
Pratab were benevolent & noble in thoughts and action.
Friends if we want we can easily spread this information, say by telling our
friends, cousins etc and so on . They in turn can do the same.
In no time we will be a huge group, and can do something constructive about it.
The petition can initially start online, and than we can come together in the
respective city we are living in, just like the reservation opposition by
doctors.
We will try our best to bring back the remains of our national hero, and be
successful in our endeavor.
We request our fellow citizens to pass this mail forth to each and everyone and
request Indian Govt to take up this issue forth with the Govt of
Afghanistan. Either the remains should come back or treated with respect.
I hope and expect every Indian will take sometime off his/her valuable time to
pass this on and put this little (even if it is like a drop in the ocean) effort
to save the grave of our martyr.
please forward this mail to ur friends.

india wants agian a new prathvi raj chauhan

monu said...

prathvi raj chauhan is the really greate king of india. I like much prathvi raj chauhan and sanyogita love story.
By a little mistake of prathvi raj chauhan Hindus were enslaved by Muslims for SEVEN HUNDRED YEARS.

"Jo galati prathvi raj chauhan ne gauri ko jinda chhod kar ki hai jisake vajah se bharat musalmano ka gulam ban gaya aaj bhi hamari goverment vahi galati kar rahi hai
just like afajal,kasab,banglageshi refusi and pakistan".

What happened to Sanyogita after Prithviraj Chauhan was defeated??

This was very touching. I was intensely moved with the History of King Prithviraj Chauhan and felt unhappy with the perfect history. Thank You for the excellent article posted here.

Prithviraj Chauhan's story is indeed soul-stirring. Brings tears to my eyes everytime I think of his compassion and the wretch Muhammad Ghori's treachery and ungratefulness. It is indeed very sad that he used compassion to spare Muhammad Ghouri who did not deserve even an iota of it.

It is a great trait of Rajputs to spare the lives on even enemies when they beg for it. This produces gratefulness in Hindu kings who generally remain loyal to the person sparing their lives till they breathe their last.

Unfortunately Muhammad Ghori and his likes are barbarians who have no concept of kindness, compassion and loyalty. They have a history of dacoity, cruelty and disloyalty that does not deserve the compassion shown by Prithviraj. They kill their own father, brothers and other kin.

The wrong application of Prithviraj's kindness and nobility resulted in India paying a very heavy price. Compare this with Gandhiji insisting at the time of partition that Muslims may remain in India if they choose to. Rajaji and Vallabhai Patel were very clear that Muslims should go to Pakistan and the Hindus there should come back to India since the very idea of partition is to create a separate state for Muslims. Gandhiji prevailed and the consequences were disastrous. Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh have virtually been wiped out but the Muslims here thrive and are a favored lot with our politicians. Gandhiji's apparent kindness is really not kindness at all. This is why in matters of such importance we should use the head and not the heart in deciding things.

But we may not have been able to avoid Muslim invasion even otherwise as there was a lot of betrayal among Hindus. The wretches joined hands with the invaders to betray their own motherland. So many such cases have been there.

It is disgusting to learn that present day Afghans desecrate the grave of such a brave, kind and noble king as Prithviraj who spared the life of their own hero Muhammad Ghori. Such culture-less savages they are.

We indeed must act and put pressure on the Govt. of India to bring back his grave and erect a grand monument in his honor.

Will Hindus act?

prithviraj chauhan........the great king of INDIA.....who fought against Ghori wil be remembered always..by his great deeds and work..the one who tried to protect our India..but prithvi's kindness only made him to die...after prithvi's death these invaders came..then the britishers...the first Indian who became the president is Dr.rajendraprasad...so prithviraj chauhan has made the base for our Indians tp protect the India...
we Love you Prithvirajchauhan....

The Great king in the history of India and inthe history of world is Prithvi Raj Chauhan.He was not only a great patriot he is the living god of the Hindu.We should not only respect this brave son of India but follow his dedication,patriotism,kindness.He've been the one patriot whose name can be found in few pages of Indian History due to the caste based politics of 21st century but his moral is still alive in some hindu hear.

I want to nitpick one fact though in your write-up. From 1758, the Marathas were the de-facto rulers of Delhi. They invaded Delhi at will and even collected tributes from the Mughal King (note King, not emperor anymore).

If Prithviraj Chauhan had listed his generals and killed Ghori India would not have come under Muslim rule.

DarkAngel said...

Prithviraj Chauhan was indeed a great person but he didn't killed Mohammed Ghori( Mohammed-Bin-Sam ). Mohammad Ghori was killed in 1206 A.D. by a person from Khokhar Tribe( A tribe originally from Afghanistan which migrated to India due to Mohammad Ghori's attack ) while he was alone perhaps reading Namaz. Prithvi Raj showed Great mercy to Mohammed Ghori and even released him with many gifts after Tarain's 1st battle in 1191 A.D..

In Tarain's 2nd Battle in 1192 A.D. he was defeated my Mohammed Ghori captured Prithviraj and took him to Afghanistan and killed him there. It is also said that he cut him in to pieces to show his cruelty and blah blah.

There are some other facts which proves that claim from Prithviraj Raso is wrong:
* If Prithviraj killed Mohammed Ghori after his defeat and imprisonment in Tarain's 2nd battle in 1192 then HOW can Battle of CHANDAWAR takes place between Jaychand and Mohammed Ghori in which Mohammed Ghori defeated Jaychand who had invited him to attack Prithviraj.


Prithviraj Chauhan was a great person but from my opinion there were much better rulers in past. According to me he was not visionary and a little hot headed.

One of the greatest ruler of Indian history was Chandragupta Maurya ( most of the credit goes to Chanakya :-) ). He expanded his emires and conquered back the territories conqured by Alexander the Great. Alexander's Commander Seleucus after seeing the power of Chandragupta's Army forgot the plan of taking back lost territories and proposed a treaty which changed in to Marriage alliance in which Chandragupta married with Seleucus's daughter Helena " Our 1st Videshi Bahu :p".

this story to my opinion is totally false and fabrication,i believe p r chauhan is brave enough.but the death which here the hindus historians is portraiting is not up to the mark.because chauhan was actually killed by ghori in 2nd fight when chauhan was running to save his life.so i am sorry.i cannot believe on this story after got prisoned by ghori.thanks

guys,i am new here but i am familiar with our great warriors.and it is truely considerable that rajput warriors were very brave.but the main cause of defeat of them that many of rajput kings had jealous to them also.for example rana pratap fought for mewar and mansingh who was also a rajput ,a traitor fought against maharana on behalf of akbar.
and second thing we all know about the past rajput warriors and also present soldiers who are serving for bharat,but the youth is only believes in street fighting this the truth of today.

Please have some knowledge of history . Apply you mind before you make a noise.

This snippet in taken from Advanced study in the history of medieval India. Volume 1 P.82

"Ghiyasuddin,the elder brother of Muhammad Ghori died in 1203 and the latter acquired an independent status as a ruler.He assumed the tittle of Muizuddin.The last two years of his reign were full of troubles and misfortunates.He suffered a humiliating defeay in 1205 at the hands of the shah of Khwarizm.soon afterwards,he heard the news of a revolt by khokhars in central punjab.Hardpressed,Aibek appealed to Muhammad Ghori for help.The latter came to Punjab, crushed the revolt and helped Aibek in restorin law and order.On his return journey to Ghazni, he was encamped at Dhamyak (distrct jhelum) on the Indus when a party of the Khokhar dare-devils stealthily entered his tent and put him to death on March 15,1206.

Gauri was Killed by Khokhars in Punjab any text book of history of 11-12th class (say NCERT/CBSE) mentions that.

For detailed story refer to Minhaj,Tabaqat i nasiri, E&D ,II,p.294

The last hindu ruler have fought throught his life but he has not get the helping hand from other rajput ruler to protect india from muslim invaders due to which he has lost & all hindus from every community have suffered from muslim , but he was the hero & wil remain same , he was a brave & kind hearted person & a true rajput & he also shows when he has forgiven ghouri in first battle. But i think indian government has to think something on this issue that still the remains of prithviraj is in afghanistan & after 63 years of independence still govt has done nothing to bring remains of our last hindu ruler & his name has been vanished from history but thanks to some people those who worked to give status to the history of prithviraj. I salute this rajput & always love to hear something about him. Anoop chauhan ( Ghaziabad) village is in Khair ( Aligarh).

The Great King Prithviraj Chauhan was our ancestor and I Rishi Ratan Chauhan belongs to his dynasty too. That is why its in our blood to fight by passion and to live like royals. But I am very sad to say that these muslims and corrupted ministers of mostly congress had spoiled our country and The Royal dynasty and our Royal Monuments. Now one more Prithviraj Chauhan is needed to hunt the muslims and corrupted ministers. Rishi from Indian Army

He was a fool who unnecessarily fought Indian rulers, made them and himself weak thereby making way to make India slave.

.....we all care for and cherish history, and in the case of Prithvi Raj Chauhan, as justice to history it must be noted and acknowledged that ''Rajput" as a race did not exist - it was only 'KSHATRIYAS''and Gujarat was never ruled by Rajputs but The Gujar Kshatriyas after which it got its name GujarDesh. So as justice to history before the Mughal Era may we only use Kshatriya'' (as the word that describes and prevelent at that time )- the great Hindu Rulers of India which includes 'raja Prithvi Raj Chauhan'- a grat Kshatriya warrior

Prithvi was an amazing warrior and Sayongita was probably the luckiest girl to have married him <3 even though his blindness was really upsetting, his stories never fail to impress me and make me proud as a Hindu :) I'm watching the series again on Sky Arts because it's just too great and interesting to not watch!

"Har Har Mahadev!" as his army would say... :')

thanks to the author of the post... i feel very bad that i came to about this ... he is a great hind king ... son of the soil... I salute him.. we should bring his grave to india with our efforts.. all the problems of india has its cause and roots from muslim pseudo secular congress... we should unite quikly politically.. our history books didnot say truth ... and now italian f**k bitch (mafia) and her family is contolling our country..

sorry some mistakes.. instead of "i came to about this" it should have been "i came to know about this very lately"..

Anonymous said...

The disrespect the afghanis show towards him only proves that his presence makes them realize again and again that someone had the guts to kill their king in their own land inspite of being blind. Thats called bravery and they know they can never match him.So all that is left for them to do is to abuse him.
THEY BETTER KNOW THAT NO AMOUNT OF DISRESPECT CAN EVER CHANGE THE FACT THAT HE WAS THE GREATEST AND THEY COULD NOT DEFEAT HIM


There is an article which says that Prithvi's grave was dug and brought back to India by Sher Singh Rana recently. How true is this? Pls validate and if brought back where is it?

Hi everyone the article is very accurate however the lines that were recited by chand bardai for Maharaj prithvi raj chauhan to kill Mahmud Ghori are as follows:-

"Char baans, chaubis hasta, angul ashta praman, Ete pai Sultan hai. Ab mat chuko Chauhan."

Anonymous said...

I liked the bravery of Prithivi Raj Chauchan. But he was a foolish King. He did not understand and respected the sacrifice of his own soldier who died in first battle with Ghori and left Ghori to go back. Thinks about those poor soldiers died in fighting for him in first war against Ghori and this foolish king for flase boosting of his own glory pardoned MD. GHORI. This story also shows our hollow glory in which we insult the sacrifice poor people like peasants , lower caste, dalits and( in case of prithivi raj chauhan even sacrifice of his own soldiers of his own caste) but show great respect to a foriegner like Ghori to go back. He was a good soldier and but a very bad and vision less general. I do not fully believe he killed Ghori by arrow. Foolish person like him who don't respect the sacrifice of his own soldier deserve to be blinded by nomad person like MD. Ghori.

I don't mind any negitive comments-totally understandable! One man's Hero is another man's Villian, each is entitled to an Opinion.
As a child, I grew up with stories of this Hero, told by Our Dear (Late)Father who was a Hero in His own Right-A Direct Decendent of MahaRaja PrithviRaj Chauhan(The Great). My Father's Life and Work was commerated by releasing a stamp of Him.
It was today' that I came across this page and I felt Humbled and Proud to review the wright-ups.

This great warrior definitely deserves more space in Indian history books... unfortunately Indian history books at school has one whole chapter on Ghori and a small paragraph on this great warrior..

birubikram koirala said...

I am sorry but I want to inform you that Prithviraj Chauhan was born in 1149 AD.Further this story is bit incomplete because here is not written how he was killed by Ghori's guards.Anyway,the story is nice and lots of respect to the greatest warrior and wish he will born again.
But stop copying from Wikipedia.At least you should trim yaar....

prach said...

will like to inform you people all that Prithviraj chauhan grave is stll is Afghan, which is not taken care of at all (as he was cremenated by muslims ) and muslims still spit on it calling it Kafir grave. and more over on facebook while searching i found a profile using Great patriotic king's name with all bravery slogans on profile, but inside he is degrading the kings name and using it for ponography and degrading hindus and showing bad picture of great historic hero of us .and Moreover , so far any serial or movies made in name of Prithviraj's name is never completed till end ....in case if u need more details and want to get the whole world know abt that great warrior . get in touch with me on prachsagar@gmail.com

varun shrivastava said...

Except for Prithiviraj Raso, is there any other historical source that may vindicate the killing of Mahmud by Prithiviraj Chauhan by the help of Chandbardai? If Chandbardai and Prithiviraj stabbed each other immediatley after shooting Ghouri, how Chandbardai was able to complete Prithiviraj Raso and mention the whole incident in its composition.Please clear my doubt.

Prithviraj Chauhan was uncle of Sanyogita. According to Hindu culture whatever he had done, it was not correct. Jai Chand was saving own culture. According to me Prithviraj was character less person. How, a characterless person could become good emperor. According to my view, because of him only, Muslims had invaded India.
But, I really love Maharana Pratap. He was the one of the finest emperor of India.

He is very brave great individual warrior. But not a statesman like shivaji. More egoestic person. We should learn from his, ranasanga s defeat. Shold never commit same mistake
