Thus had Rao nurtured an almost insatiable appetite for military expansion and achievement, both for himself and for his Chhathrapathi at Satara. The Mughal Empire which had been significantly weakened by the Treaty of Bhopal in , was no longer an obstacle in the way of the rise of Maratha power. Under the fiercely zealous Peshwa, the Confederacy unleashed itself with unbridled fury against its enemies.

Under the banner of Bajirao, the powerful Maratha cavalry ranged far and wide, annexing kingdoms, crushing empires and imposing chauth and the saffron flag wherever they went.

Going by what the bards and minstrels sang through the lands, the Peshwa was said to have single-handedly, and on foot, held his own against half-a-dozen Rajput warriors who had surrounded him and cut off his personal protection, during the War of the Maratha Reclamation of Mewar—the jewel of Rajputana.

Despite eventual rescue, Rao had endured almost seven bloody minutes of ferocious fighting against the hardened Rajputs, whose single agenda was to cleave his soul from his body. Defying all orders to surrender, Bajirao had slain two of the enemy soldiers with the fury of a berserker and held four others at bay.

He had sustained a stab wound to the back and several gashes on the arms, thighs and calves, until his own men were able to break in and intervene. When the last of the Rajput assailants finally fell to the swords of the rescue party, the Maratha soldiers who got to their Peshwa at last, saw him on his knees.

He was leaning on the hilt of his blood-stained sabre which was plunged into the earth. The Peshwa was panting, perspiring, trembling and bleeding from the cuts and bruises all over his body.

It was then that a cry went up from the lips of a soldier overcome with awe and admiration for the leader who would fight and die at his side, rather than issue orders and conduct battles from some opulent throne room in Pune.

Then another … and another. The words rippled through the entire Maratha army like a tidal wave. The stray cry had become a chant and the chant, a synchronised roar. He then stood up straight, stumbling a couple of times before he could finally do so.

Withdrawing his sabre from the earth with flourish and holding it up to the skies, Rao addressed the four directions with a cry of victory. At present, the young autumn sun shone bright and high in the cloudless sky.

Sweltering in his battle armour, his helm on the rocky earth by his side, Rao looked through the lens of a brass spyglass down towards where the Confederate Army had engaged the enemy—a sizeable host at least ten thousand strong under Sikandar, the last of the Adil Shahi Sultans.

And it just becomes too long. And too long.

It does take you to that Maratha era, but yet, fails to deliver what it aims at. And that was my biggest disappointment.

I loved all the characters except Rau and Mastani. Mastani has been very poorly developed in the book and I have to say here, that the movie was much better. Mastani has been very poorly developed in the book and the only savior is Kashibai, whom from the start to the end, I adored Somehow I found this one a little disappointing. My mother has read the Marathi version original version of this book and she says it is incredible.

The English version didn't catch my fascination. I am highly disappointed. I thought the book was more about the valor and courage of the Shrimant Peshwa, though it turned out to be more about his personal life.
