About this Item: Mahal Publications, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This study is based primarily on secondary sources in English language and takes issue with Sikh historians to offer novel perspectives on the nature and function of Sikh misls. It covers the period beginning in the fall of 1709 when Banda Bahadur and his small band of Khalsa warriors stormed into Punjab and the Baisakhi day in 1801 when Ranjit Singh was proclaimed Maharaja of the Punjab. During this period Punjab was buffeted by political turbulence and confusion. Mogul empire was losing its majesty and luster and embroiled with an endless spiral of wars of succession that weakened the imperial grip over Punjab. The Moguls confronted a two-front war on two geographically separate fronts. In the north, primarily in Punjab, the repeated forays of Afghan invader Abdali so emasculated Mogul hold over Punjab that the Mogul emperor Ahmad Shah Bahadur ceded Lahore and Multan to Abdali. In the south the Marathas read the winds of change then blowing through imperial Mogul indicating an empire on the wane and in 1757 captured Delhi and vast swathes of countryside up to Saharanpur. With overpowering presence in the imperial city the Marathas now turned their eye on Punjab to drive the Afghan invader and occupier from the country. The Afghans and Marathas faced one another at Panipat. They fought three battles and in the final clash in January 1761 the Maratha army suffered a catastrophic defeat, ending Maratha hegemony over Punjab. Although Abdali managed to crush the Marathas once and for all, his ambition of hegemony over Punjab was quashed by his nemesis, the Sikh misls. And in this crucible of turbulence the Sikhs were to forge their destiny. Following the death of Banda Bahadur some of his followers for whom marauding had become a way of life formed their own jathas (gangs) and lived off plunder. On Baisakhi 1748 these bands or jathas were finally merged into one army, the Dal Khalsa divided into eleven misls with own name, leader and flag, under the supreme command of Jassa Singh Ahluwalia. The twelfth misl was the Phulkian misl but it was not an integral part of the Dal Khalsa. Pillaging skills that the jathas honed over the years were employed to pounce on Abdali s booty-laden caravan, hit and grab as much of loot and make a getaway to their strongholds and bulwarks in the hills and jungles; redoubts built for the purpose of better securing their persons and property against Afghan and Mogul search parties. The misls pillaged villages, merchants and traders. In time they changed their tactics. Instead of terrorizing the villages and towns they offered them protection (rakhi) against interlopers and in return exact some form of tithe. As a misl amassed large treasure, it also attracted greater following. The stronger misls would flex their muscles and intimidate the weaker ones. Territorial influence intensified rivalry and political maneuverings prompting some misldars to invite their counterparts to launch an attack on a chieftain with whom they had a bone to pick with. They double-crossed each other and often aligned themselves with the enemy (Moguls or Afghans), without compunction. As the authority of prominent and wealthy misldars diminished on their passing or old age, Ranjit Singh, chief of Sukerchakia misl, was able to amalgamate or annex them under his flag and proclaimed Maharaja.

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.?, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. First. B.S. Mahal presents a fascinating kaleidoscope of history of the nomads of the Central Asian steppe. He has garnered and drawn from a vast array of written works, some ancient and some brought to light more recently, to create a compelling narrative. Painstakingly researched are the origins and ethnography of Scythians that until now had remained unexplored, indeterminate, and vague. From congeries of steppe nomads the author brings a distinct coherence to Scythian group identity. According to the author the ethnic streams that flow into this affiliation are familial tribes of Indo-Iranians called Massagetae, Tahshak, Alan, Dahae, Saka, and Getae. Precisely delineated is the Scythian penetration of the Indus valley region, prompted by unique impulses at various times from different geographical areas. Although Scythian ingress was mostly migratory, the author cites a large-scale relocation by Darius of defeated hostile Massagetae (?stout?) Getae, pronounced je-te from Central Asia to northern India?a well established policy of the times of deporting enemy fighters to remote parts of the empire as a means of putting an end to their reconstituting into a viable fighting force. Previously just surmised, Mahal?s account establishes an incontrovertible link between the Jats of the Indian Subcontinent and the Scythians of antiquity. By pointing to curious similitude to one another of rites and practices of Scythians and Jats and meticulously juxtaposing their traits and temperament he makes a powerful argument that these traditions and characteristics were acquired by India?s Jats from Scythian forebears. When Scythians entered India they embraced Buddhism which was the prevailing faith of the time. Later, their descendants, the Jats, converted to Hinduism, Islam, and Sikhism; but they remained Jats, and their link with the Steppe endured. Jats are widely dispersed throughout the Punjab region of Pakistan and India and a good number of them are to be found in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan. The author?s book is a blend of perceptive observations and painstaking research. The text is well-illustrated with figures and maps. What the reader will find immensely useful is an exhaustive bibliography of books, articles, and papers. Seller Inventory # MRML-9788121512916

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. B.S. Mahal presents a fascinating kaleidoscope of history of the nomads of the Central Asian steppe. He has garnered and drawn from a vast array of written works, some ancient and some brought to light more recently, to create a compelling narrative. Painstakingly researched are the origins and ethnography of Scythians that until now had remained unexplored, indeterminate, and vague. From congeries of steppe nomads the author brings a distinct coherence to Scythian group identity. According to the author the ethnic streams that flow into this affiliation are familial tribes of Indo-Iranians called Massagetae, Tahshak, Alan, Dahae, Saka, and Getae. Precisely delineated is the Scythian penetration of the Indus valley region, prompted by unique impulses at various times from different geographical areas. Although Scythian ingress was mostly migratory, the author cites a large-scale relocation by Darius of defeated hostile Massagetae (?stout?) Getae, pronounced je-te from Central Asia to northern India?a well established policy of the times of deporting enemy fighters to remote parts of the empire as a means of putting an end to their reconstituting into a viable fighting force. Previously just surmised, Mahal?s account establishes an incontrovertible link between the Jats of the Indian Subcontinent and the Scythians of antiquity. By pointing to curious similitude to one another of rites and practices of Scythians and Jats and meticulously juxtaposing their traits and temperament he makes a powerful argument that these traditions and characteristics were acquired by India?s Jats from Scythian forebears. When Scythians entered India they embraced Buddhism which was the prevailing faith of the time. Later, their descendants, the Jats, converted to Hinduism, Islam, and Sikhism; but they remained Jats, and their link with the Steppe endured. Jats are widely dispersed throughout the Punjab region of Pakistan and India and a good number of them are to be found in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan. The author?s book is a blend of perceptive observations and painstaking research. The text is well-illustrated with figures and maps. What the reader will find immensely useful is an exhaustive bibliography of books, articles, and papers. Printed Pages: 200. Seller Inventory # 101149
