The Sword of Tipu Sultan
The Sword of Tipu Sultan
Description
Back of The Book

This historical tells the story of Tipu Sultan the man, the lover, the soldier, the prince, and the king. It speaks of those who loved and betrayed him; of charming ladies and brilliant men around him; of his greatness and of the crafty stupidity of his contemporaries; of the wit and folly of his times; and of the struggle of men and ideas when faced with the march of history. Based on extensive research and original sources, The Sword of Tipu Sultan is an original contribution to historical literature which gives insights into the character of its hero, and the period in which he lived.

Tipu, maligned by historians as a cruel and bigoted ruler, emerges here as a humane, enlightened ruler who believed that God is not confined to any one religion and that all religions therefore deserve equal respect. He was opposed to colonialism; welcomed the American Declaration of Independence and applauded the spirit of the French Revolution. The author establishes him as the first among modern Indian nationalists who knew also that India was weakened no by outside powers but by sickness, decadence, and disunity within.

The novel vividly portrays the drama of Tipu’s times and recaptures the amazing spirit of the man who in the midst of disaster lost neither his dignity nor his love nor his faith in the values he cherished. He chose to court death when he could have saved himself, for he firmly believed that his sacrifice would serve as an example for the future generations of India.

About The Author

Bhagwan S. Gidwani was born in 1923 in Karachi (Sindh), and remained there until Partition merged his province with Pakistan. Gidwani specialized in technical, economic, and legal fields of civil aviation. He was counsel for India at the International Court of Justice (World Court) at The Hague; and negotiated India’s air transport agreements with foreign governments. He has variously served as India’s additional director general of tourism; representative of India on ICAO Council, Montreal, (1979-81), and director of Legal Bureau of ICAO (United Nations), Montreal from 1981-85.

The Sword of Tipu Sultan has been reprinted in forty four editions and has sold more than 2,50,000 copies. He also wrote the script, screenplay and dialogues for the television serial based on the book, which ran for many years and was also telecast in Europe, U.K., U.S.A. and West Asian countries.

Gidwani has authored Omar I –a poetic rejoinder to Omar Khayyam, which discovers fresh and vibrant insights in Omar’s poetry and mysticism; his other book, Return of the Aryans received much critical acclaim.

Based in Montreal, Canada, Prof Bhagwan S. Gidwani continues to participate in international projects to promote safety of air transport and tourism. Largely though, he concentrates on historical writing and research.

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
You have the best selection of Hindu religous art and books and excellent service.i AM THANKFUL FOR BOTH.
