History has noted very few personalities like MAHARANA PRATAP who not only did not care for any difficulties and sacrificed all the pleasure of the world but fought and died for the independence of their Mother land.

It will be difficult to find any Indian who has not heard the name of MAHARANA PRATAP whose greatness, sacrifice and bravery had to be accepted and praised by the Indian and Foreign Historians alike.

On one side Akbar wanted entire India under One FLAG. On the other side Pratap was propagating the slogan of “Our Country & Our Flag”. This caused the clash between the two great personalities of the Indian History. Akbar’s ideal of ONE INDIA was not bad in itself but Pratap’s ideal was based on love and sacrifice for the Mother land. These two ideals clashed and the result was the famous battle of HALDIGHATI, the result of which was against Pratap but was not to be disappointed. He fought with double vigour and the sacrifices he made are now immortal in the History of India.

This picture brings before you some of the incidents and happening based on the life and legend of this great warrior and patriot- Maharana Pratap – by mere mention of whose name not only the people of Rajasthan but the people of entire India feel proud and bow down their head in reverence to this IMMORTAL SON OF INDIA.
