From the Book

Amar Chitra Katha is a collection of illustrated classics that retell stories from Indian mythology, history, folktale and legend through the fascinating medium of comics. Over 430 stories from all over India have been told in this series that has been endorsed by educationists and recommended by teachers the world over.

Through a masterful blend of commentary, dialogue and illustration, Amar Chitra Katha presents complex historical facts and intricate mythology in a format that would appeal to children. They not only entertain, but also provide a fitting introduction to the cultural heritage of India. In a country so vast and varied, the series also serves as a medium for national integration, by introducing young readers to the rich cultural diversity of the county and highlighting the achievements of local heroes.

Amar Chitra Katha comics are like family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation..

Back of the Book

With the death of Harsha, King of Kanauj, in about 647 A.D. his great empire in North India collapsed. It rapidly disintegrated into several petty kingdoms.

Foreign invaders took advantage of India's disunity. Some time in the 12th century, the Afghan Chief Shahabuddin Ghori (also known as Mohammad of Ghor) captured the empire of Mahmmud of Ghazni and became the new ruler of Ghazni. Prithviraj Chauhan faced this foreign invader and despite his defeat and death became the hero of many legends. The first story told in this Pancharatna volume is based on these legends.

The second title in this volume is Rana Kumbha. Kumbha ascended the throne of Mewar in 1433 and ruled for thirty-five years, a period replete with campaigns. He never lost a battle even when confronted with the toughest of adversaries.

Rana Sanga was his worthy successor. Early in the 16th century, when a vast area of India was under the domination of foreign rulers, Sanga made a valiant attempt to defeat them. His major battle was against Babar at Khanua.

By the time Rana Pratap ascended the throne of Mewar, almost everyone in North India had bowed down before Akbar. Only the lone unbending figure of Rana Pratap stood against him. In the fourth title in this volume is presented the tale of Rana Pratap's heroic struggle against the might of the Mughal empire.

Rani Durgavati, is the heroine of the fifth title in this volume. The daughter of a Rajput chieftain, she married a Gond prince. How she bravely faced Akbar's vast armies with her small army of 500 men will ever be remembered and retold with pride for generations to come.
