"Hammir of Ranthambhor was the bravest of all brave. He was ambitious, resolute, indomitable, unflinching-undaunted, chivalrous, lionhearted and a man of words which he kept till last, and even today he is well known for that. A lioness gives birth to a cub only once; once alone is the word of a good man given; once only does a plantain bear fruit, a woman is anointed only once with oil for marriage and once alone did Hammir gives his irrevocable promise. In the present volume, the author gives us a connected history of the fort of Ranthambhor from the earliest period, of Chauhan dynasty and Hammir, the invasions of Allauddin Khalji and Akbar, to the time when it came under the erstwhile Jaipur State. Beside the book is richly illustrated with photographs of the fort and rare paintings of Hammir, and the invasion of Akbar, five inscriptions, bibliography and index. The exhaustive study is based upon Hammirmahakavya, Bardic chronicles, inscriptional records, Khyats, Raso, works of mediaeval Muslim historians and modern historians." (jacket).
