The Brahmin Warrior
Will the ‘Brahmin Warrior’ avenge the humiliation of the Rajputs?
Having defeated Rana Sanga and his Rajput army in the Battle of Khanwa, Babur descends upon Chanderi in January 1528. With only a few men to defend the fort, the Rajputs decide that the women would immolate themselves and save their honour, while the men would fight Babur’s forces till the last drop of their blood.
Even as the women start jumping into the fire, Meera stays back. She has conceived after sixteen years. While her husband runs away to save himself, she is forced into slavery by her captors. Fortunately, she and her newborn son are rescued from the slave market by a Sufi ascetic, who hands them over to Abdul Gafoor, a Mughal commander. Meera and her son Aditya become a part of Gafoor’s family and he treats her like a sister.
Aditya grows up to be a fierce Brahmin warrior, but gets labelled as mole of the Mughals. Now he must use every trick in the book to unmask his scheming enemies in this action-packed page-turner.
