Title Review

This study makes an in-depth survey of the forts and palaces as important seats of power for the monarchs of the erstwhile states, the fate of these forts deciding the fortunes of their lords and their history reflecting on the history of the states. Focusing on forts on both sides of the river Ravi, Dr Jerath presents the history of a number of fast-decaying forts or those that are ruined partially, and other completely ruined ones that do not exist physically anymore though possessing a historical background or have even been replaced by new buildings. He gives stories and legends related to their construction and traces in them the echoes of the struggle of races: the cries of those who fell in battle and the exultant voices of the victorious. Examining the forts as a symbol of Indian heritage and documenting the information with colourful photographs, he describes each monument elaborately and cites references to them available in various works.

Dr Jerath has been awarded for his writings by noted institutions including the Central Hindi Directorate and the J&K Academy of Art, Culture and Languages.
