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 recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
