Navrang has shown a lovely plethora of tints to depict the scene of the battle of Thanesar which is taken from the Akbarnama. It is a historic Persian miniature that is festooned with real gold, increasing its worth and value. This painting encapsulates many men and many war animals however it highlights one young geezer who seems to be the commander of the battalions as they cross the river. He wears a beige jama and a green tassel like waist band that tightens around his body. This porcelain complexioned man with deep lines etched over his face wears a grey feathered turban as he carries a long spear in his hand and rides a decorated elephant who is emblazoned with gorgeous ornamented balls around its neck and a saddle cloth that hangs over its back. It is also enhanced with a pink tinted feather that falls over its head band.

The high blue river tides picture many soldiers who are either swimming, are in the cavalry or are mounted on elephants. All the geezers wear vibrant jamas and turbans as they take control of their exotically imprinted and designed war animals, holding their swords and spears as they look at their commander for help. They carry flags, shields and floral sheathed armaments as they struggle against the tides. The background shows amazingly contrasted green and beige fort like buildings and minaret that protrude from them as they peak from the lush green trees which stand on the grassy green riverbed.

To add further charm to this awestriking piece the artist encloses it in a golden and peach rectangular floral frame which is blessed with jade blue pistils and eye-catching motifs. This painting is the perfect match for those who love ancient Mughal history as it not only enhances their old cultural knowledge but turns out to be a great and precious ornament for their house hence even decorating up their soul.
