Like there are many a questions raised every now and then on Prithviraj Chauhan in the context of my article posted on him in reply to a question raised by Yashica Singh, this one is in reply to query raised by Maria. Maria’s question is to know something more on Sanyokta (or Sanjokta as she has been called by many) and whether it is true that she opted to be the wife of a king who was already having 8 queens. It is actually a guess of some of the historians and may not be entirely true but the fact remains that in those days it was not uncommon, rather it was very common, not only for the kings but equally the commoners in the society to marry several times, a practice flagrantly in vogue then. One aspect that Prithviraj did have many a girls in his harem like other kings used to do which does not denote that all were his wives. Sanyokta fell for him and was unable to resist the temptation of becoming his life partner. There is a mention that her father Jai Chand was dead set against Sanyokta marrying Prithviraj for two reasons -one that her husband should not be a man, even if he happens to be a king, who can’t spare himself as a full timer for her and -two that he considered Prithviraj as his enemy. It was with this aim in mind that Jai Chand organised a Swayambar to see that her choice falls on some other king in the Swayamber and that she goes with him as his wife. Sanyokta was so deeply attracted to Prithviraj that she ignored all plans seeing to it that she goes with the man she loved so much. He managed to pick her up before she was supposed to reach the Swayamber place, took her along on the horseback. There are versions that he was chased by the soldiers of Jai Chand but he was was strong enough to overpower them and escape. It is not very certain as to which exactly was the place from where he pickedup Sanyokta but the circumstances indicate that this place must have been Kannauj where Jai Chand ruled. Travelling all the way from there, Prithviraj had his first night with Sanyokta at Aamer Fort at Jaipur. The way she conducted herself in remaining with her lovemate through thick and thin continuing at times with him even during some war was going on proves that hers was a real true love for him and not of a kind of so so. She was extraordinarily beautiful, she was brave, she was committed, she was great.
