  1. Map of British territories in 1907. Credit: Wikimedia Commons War was coming, and the powerful Nepali prime minister Bhimsen Thapa knew it. But the Nepali army lacked the long-range cannons needed to besiege the Company, and wedged in by the powerful Ranjit Singh in the west and the Company to the south and the east, Bhimsen Thapa could not acquire “a better grade of steel and greater skill in casting” for his cannons. But there was still a card left to play: In 1814, Bhimsen Thapa sent out missives, among other princely states, to the Marathas in Gwalior, where, although the Scindia was “impressed [by the Gorkhali courage] in standing up to the British”, he agreed on allying with the Gorkhas only if Ranjit Singh joined the alliance. Amar Singh Thapa was required to send the Kathmandu missive to Ranjit Singh, which offered the Lion of Lahore: “a division of the Gangetic plain from Delhi to Calcutta between the Sikhs, the Gorkhalis and the Marathas…[and] an appeal to Ranjit in the name of Hinduism to drive the British out of India”. The tripartite alliance never came to be. One account suggests Ranjit Singh, like other Indian states, preferred to bide his time; also, that he turned “over to the British several letters that had been sent to him by Nepal” and mobilised his army to the Sutlej to take “advantage of any opportunities that might arise”. Stiller suggests the Marquess of Hastings’ movement of over half of all Bengal army, ‘46,629 British troops’, to the Nepal front and ensuring the Marathas were up to no mischief by moving the “whole disposable force of the Madras army” to the northern border of Bhopal, scuttled any plans of such an alliance. In any case, the moment was lost. Nepal went to war on five different fronts with the British between 1814-1816 before suing for peace, which resulted in the Sugauli Treaty that inextricably bound Nepal’s fate to the colonists, and after independence, to India. It lost all territory west of the Mahakali (or the Sharda, as it’s known in India), east of the Mechi and over half its territory in the Terai. The Gorkhas were now wedged in on three sides by the British or its protectorates, and on one side lay the impregnable Himalayas, their dream of creating a unified pan-hill state across the Himalayas halted in its tracks by a trading company. § By all accounts, the Gorkha empire was as opportunist as any other empire of its time, hungry for resources to fuel its massive army. Would it have stuck to its words had the proposed alliance come to be and they’d beaten back the British? We don’t know, considering the Gorkha empire’s sights were set on Kashmir, and so was the Sikh empire’s, but the alliance that could have been encourages a query: what if Amar Singh Thapa had acceded to Ranjit Singh’s initial request? Although it is not history’s job to dabble in ‘what-ifs’, a query tickles the imagination – could an alliance between the Gorkhas, the Sikhs and the Marathas have succeeded in ending Company machinations in the subcontinent?

  2. Nisid Hajari’s Midnight's Furies:

    Even if Sikhistan failed they should had secure Kashmir like status for Sikhs.Even Some Hindu kings did not sign accession as fast as sikh maharajah's did
  3. Nisid Hajari’s Midnight's Furies:

    I don't think Radcliffe took such recent data for partition. Even if sikhs had done the same but on papers that area was muslim majority then it was going to awarded to Pakistan
  4. Nisid Hajari’s Midnight's Furies:

    How stupid Nehru and Mountbatton could have been , why they didn't ask Jinnah to control riots in west punjab first.Everything was started by muslims from Rawalpindi riots to Train attacks in Lahore when deadly retaliation came they started crying
  5. Nisid Hajari’s Midnight's Furies:

    Even American media published news of train attacks on muslims by sikhs, strangely you will not find a single news of muslims attacking sikh/hindu train
  6. Nisid Hajari’s Midnight's Furies:

    The blame of starting partition violence is on muslims but sikhs are so much blamed for massacres after partition , even random search will land you on British articles newspapers blaming sikhs
  7. Nisid Hajari’s Midnight's Furies:

    I was talking about Punjab
  8. Nisid Hajari’s Midnight's Furies:

    Also I would like to know if Maharah of Patiala wanted sikhistan and was provoking sikhs to attack muslims then why he signed accession in India without securing sikh rights
  9. Nisid Hajari’s Midnight's Furies:

    Nisid Hajari is not Pakistani , he is born in India and bought up in Washington
  10. Why Sikhs are blamed so much for partition violence?
  11. Try tube patka , it is thelatest fashion. , it gives a dastar look and being very light on head
  12. Few, Karna humilating Arjuna on 16th day is not part of the above sources.Similarly there were plenty of warriors who were very deadly and use to consider themselves at par with Arjuna or Bheeshma .Similalrly Drona was also known to know many vidya's. On jaydrath vadh day , he prepared a kawach for Duryodhana through some mantra's that Arjuna was unable to break that. Krishna then show Arjun that nails of Duryodhana don't have any protection and Arjun arrows their..Bheema was very mighty warrior and on Jaydrath vadh day he defeated karna so that Arjun can by pass him. Bhim single handedly destroyed 20 akshauni sena of Duryodhan
  13. @chatanga1 If you really interested in Mahabharata then please read it from ancient sources rather than relying on Dramatised presentation of BR Chopra serial. many experts believe that Mahabharata of BR 's version was full of flaws http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m01/ You can start it from here
  14. That was different issue.Duryodhan actually believed that he has broken agyaatvaas of Pandavas. Giving 5 villages to them means that Duryodhan had to concede that Pandava's successfully completed agyaatvaas .Even though 5 villages were given the war was inevitable as Arjuna Bhima Karna Duryodhana would have come face to face somewhere else As far Kashmir is concerend. iNDIA SHOULD HAD GIVEN kashmir in 50s while retaining jammu and Ladakh.Giving an inch of land now means pieces of India. The first victim of Kashmir giving will be muslims who will face wrath of Hindu's Jihadi's will take victory of Kashmir as victory of islam over Kafirs and recruit lakhs naxals , northeast separatist movements will get boost for independence. possibly Tamilians may also start demand their Tamil nation the whole India may end up in civil war So both situations are different Also Duryodhan was not so evil like Aurangzeb , he just hated pandava's and believed that the thrown is his
