The Peshwa: The Lion and the Stallion by Ram Sivasankaran

It is the 18th century and despite the dominant Mughal rule, the Maratha Confederacy has established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the Indian Subcontinent. The fragile peace between the two powers is threatened when Balaji Vishvanath Bhat, Peshwa of the Confederacy, foils the plans of Nizam Ul Mulk of the Mughal Empire, and asserts the power of the Marathas. However, little does the Peshwa know that he has dealt the Nizam an unintended wound—one with roots in his mysterious past and one that he would seek to avenge till his last breath.

When the Peshwa surrenders his life to a terminal illness dark clouds gather over the Confederacy as it is threatened by a Mughal invasion as well as an internal rebellion.

All the while a passive spectator, the Peshwa’s son, Bajirao Bhat, now needs to rise beyond the grief of his father’s passing, his scant military and administrative experience, and his intense love for his wife and newborn son to rescue everything he holds dear. Will the young man be able to protect the Confederacy from internal strife and crush the armies of the Empire all while battling inner demons? Will he live up to his title of Peshwa?

Disclaimer: This is not a paid review. This was such an interesting review. I like historical novels with intrigue and mystery. This looks perfect. I too read this book last year and had reviewed it. I like to read period novels and this was a good read.

Fascinated with the idea of battles, wars, campaigns, military strategy and their aftermath, Ram unexpectedly came across the warrior Bajirao in books. Intrigued, he read up more and more on him. I loved conjuring up historical scenes, costumes, settings, courtrooms, moods, battles and romances as I read on. Ram has put in a lot of research into the subject. It will not be reasonable to read my book for learning history and faulting it based on deviations from history.

T he epic tale of Bajirao Bhat is worth telling and retelling for generations to come. The name Bajirao and Mastani go hand in hand. But very few people know the tale of the conquests of Bajirao. The man who never lost a battle but surrendered to life towards the end. It may entice few readers but maybe not those who already know quite a deal about the legend. The Peshwa army was known for its cavalrymen.
