Fauj-I-Khas: Maharaja Ranjit Singh and his French Officers
Fauj-I-Khas: Maharaja Ranjit Singh and his French Officers
Description
FOREWORD:

Maharaja Ranjit singh was a strong supporter of new ideas and trends. He was therefore, quick to respond to the exigencies of political situation prevailing in the Punjab during the early 19th century. He created a strong and disciplined army and well coordinated administration.He, in persuit of his objectives, inducted into his service a large number of Europeans whose talent was employed in modernizing civil and military administration of the Kingdom of Lahore.Among the Europeanthere dwere a good number of the French. The French officers, both civil and military, contributed significantly towards the modernnization of the army of the Maharaja Ranjit Singh

I am glad that Jean-Marie Lafont has underscored the contribution of French Officers, particularly General Allard and Colonel Mouton.This book I believe is a landmark in tracing the historic relationship between India and France. I congratulate Dr. Lafont for preparing this book for Guru Nanak Dev University.

I am sure this book will be received well by the students and researchers of the history of Punjab.

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
