Back of the Book

A Fabulous collection of adventures of Indian Maharanis and Royal Mistresses.

A sequel to the betseller MAHARAJA.

A rare treasure of true stories that offer a deep insight into the glamorous and sensuous lives of the Indian and European Maharanis of India.

Intriguing as well as valuable, Maharani is at once a historical romance and a sociological document, as it vividly recounts a bygone era, an era perhaps never to return again.

The author served Indian Maharajas for over 50 years accompanying them on their amorous trips to private retreats in India and abroad. He brilliantly recounts the extraordinary lives of the Maharanis of the richest men the world has ever seen.

Diwan Jarmani Dass born in Punjab in 1895, was a Minister in the States of Kapurthala and Patiala.

Articulate in Punjabi, Urdu, English and French, he was highly decorated by the Vatican and the Governments of France, Spain, Morocco, Egypt and many other countries. He was also decorated by the Rulers of Kapurthala, Patiala and Bhawalpur States.
