The forbidden heiress

the legend of bhagalpura


Tonight the sky was thundering fire , the villagers were both scared and awestruck , for the lord INDRA looked furious. The roaring thunder made every animal run towards their homes , sky as dark as though kali was soon approaching ...

It rained heavily , wetting every inch or soil on the land of MARWAD . No man was in sight  . Under a vast banyan tree a man was lying breathing heavily as though he has run away from hungry tigers .                                                       almost unconscious , he was chanting the name of BHAVANI MAA ..


“ where are we going baba ?” Himmat asked his father who was hurriedly walking through the   corridors .

“ to the mukhadwaar , hurry “

Mukhadwaar was the main entrance of the BHAGALPURA .

RANA KESAR KATOCH  was the sardar of the village . expert in martial arts , the man was a former general in the RAJPUT ARMY . The complete land of Bhagalpura was under his control , forty years of experience in the Warfield he was one of the most pivotal persons of the  country , being a member of the  RAJPUTANA ROYAL COMMITTEE  which was a group of best courtiers .

The rajputana , prestigious land of the rajputs was currently being  ruled by  maharana bhanwar singh  bhaal . the flourishing country had a beautiful capital city of JODHPUR .

The land was known for people as kind as a tree and warriors as sharp as blades .

Some time ago when  KESAR SA was strolling in his porch, in his huge mansion which was the most tallest house in the village other than the temple of BHAIROSA   , having a look at the wild weather today , he saw a man lying under the big banyan tree near the mukhadwaar . no ordinary man could withstand such a horrifying weather unless he was god himself or injured to an extent where movement was impossible for him...whatever it was kesar was adamant on seeing the man . 

 The father son duo rushed through the corridors , let their horses out of the stable which was build in the backyard of the haveli , they rode hard and fast in the rain ...darkness was everywhere , spine chilling thunder welcoming them...

They reached near the vast tree completely drenched , there was the man under the tree laying as if he is a bundle of flesh and bones , as if his soul about to depart ...

The horses making noise...

Himmat got down went near the man  checked for his pulse .

“ hes alive baba “

They lifted him and placed on one of the horses and carried him to the bhagalpura haveli .    



Kesar and himmat bought the man into the underground chambers of the haveli . the chamber was situated below the hall . the main entrance of the haveli had a secret door hidden beneath the vast carpets . the door was architecturally made strong enough to withstand huge amount of weight  . the doors of the chambers would open only the main doors would be closed , there was usage of  hydraulic technology in this mechanism.

The chamber doors was wide  enough to fit two strong men together , one had to jump IN AND them a narrow staircase led to a passage which then led to a  wide room  .

The hidden chambers were called gaabhor , which was a derivative of “ guptaghar “  which LITERALLY meant hidden house .

The gaabhor was a well equipped room with weapons like swords , shield hung on the wide wall , there were shelves filled with numerous books , boxes . and the area was well lit by flambeus  and candles . four huge flambeus were placed at all the corners of the room  . . and there was a seating arrangement done exactly in the centre of the room which resembled eight sofas arranged ovally.      ````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

The forbidden heiress


The man was laid in the healthcare chamber of gaabhor , surrounding the bed were Rana Kesar , kunwar himmat and vaidya biraj sa .

The man was treated with ayurvedic and herbal medicine by biraj sa .

“ what is his condition now vaidya ji ?” asked kesar sa

“ RANA JI , HE IS HIGHLY INURED , the wounds are very deep and he has lost much blood .

The chances for his survival are less .”

“ I SEE “


“ ji baba “ said himmat .

“ vaidya ji , i hope this case remains confidential “

“ ji Rana sa hukum , your command is my duty “
