This set combines 4 issues titled:
1. Rana Kumbha
2. Rana Sanga
3. Rana Pratap
4. Rani of Jhansi

1. RANA KUMBHA

VOL- 676

Maharana Kumbha was a scion of the Sisodiya branch of the House of Hammir. Maharana Kumbha was not only a great sovereign and military commander but also a great scholar and musicologist.

Among the galaxy of Rajput sovereigns Maharana Kumbha occupies a pre-eminent position. His natural abilities and achievements place him in the forefront of the great rulers not only of Mewar, but of the whole of India. The material for this Chitra Katha has been drawn from the famous book on the life of Kumbha by Harbilas Sarda.

2. RANA SANGA

VOL- 630

In the 8th century A D Bappa Rawal drove out the invaders from Rajasthan and united its several small kingdoms into one. Rana Sanga was his worthy successor. Early in the 16th century, when a vast area of India was under the domination of foreign rulers, he made a valiant attempt to defeat them.

In the following pages is narrated the story of the valour of this iron man of India, based on Tod’s Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan.


3. RANA PRATAP

VOL- 563

During this period when almost everyone in Northern India had bowed down before Akbar, only the lone, unbending figure of Rana Pratap stood against him. He refused to accept Akbar’ supremacy. Had he agreed to surrender, Rana Pratap could have led an easy and comfortable life at the court of Akbar. But for this cherished even more than his own life. Greatly outnumbered by Akbar’s huge forces the Rana lived a hunted life in the jungles, and suffered grave hardships. But these sufferings only spurred him on in his struggle for freedom.

The following pages present the tale of Rana Pratap’s heroic struggle against the might of the Mughal Empire.


4. RANI OF JHANSI

VOL- 539


Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi is among those national heroines whose name conjures up visions of tremendous bravery and dauntless courage against overwhelming odds. She was not aggressive by nature and it that she took up arms. She was also extremely shrewd and possessed all the qualities of a good leader. The unforgettable memory of Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi however remained – the memory of a person of unbreakable pride and utter fearlessness.

The bards of Central India still sing of the valour and virtues of the Rani, who held her own against not only her Bundela enemies but also the mighty British.
