Cuckold by Kiran Nagarkar is a historic account of the period as early as the 16th century, narrated in the form of tales by the heir apparent of Mewar who looks for answers to satisfy his questions and confusions regarding the codes, rules, conventions and underlying assumptions of the political world which he is a part of.
The book will reveal to the readers the political and social scenario of the Mewar region and will also provide in-depth accounts of the series of events that led Mewar, the Rajput kingdom, to get involved in a fierce battle with the Sultanate of Delhi, Gujarat and Malwa.
However, the readers will see that during those critical moments when the kingdom forged war against the other foreign powers, the scenario unfortunately and dramatically got worse with the upsurging of yet another fierce civil war within the boundaries of Mewar itself.
