As I wrote in my post ‘Prithviraj Chauhan -His last days (2), I have been going through lot many versions of narrations on the great hero by different other authors/historians to meet numerous queries raised by my otherwise quite inquisitive readers on the subject quite frequently. Although it is not quite possible to meet all the queries on individual footing, I do feel it is incumbent on my part to cover salient areas on the last days of the great warrior in a summed up form. I am thankful to many of my readers who gave me much of feed back to me by way of their comments. When badly defeated in the first battle of Tarain by Prithviraj Chauhan, Mohd Ghori begged for mercy and most kind hearted as Prithviraj Chauhan was he just spared him not realising that the invader was of a mean type and could behave in most treacherous a manner later on when getting an opportunity. He connived, saw to it that there was again a battle at Tarain. There again the Indian King emerged thumpingly victorious but before he could settle down with the victory he was conceitfully overpowered by the herd of enemy army, captured and dragged to invaders camp from where he was hurriedly taken to Ghazni. The story that followed is awefully humiliating with a volley of tortures on the Indian hero. He was blinded and so was done to his all time companion Chand Bardai, his court poet. As planned and worked out with dexterity by Chand Bardai, Prithviraj had a chance to exhibit his chivalry in bow and arrow skill which chance he took to brutally attack Ghori. There are two versions on this -one that his arrow could pierce the heart of Ghori killing him on the spot and the other that he was severely attacked but escaped. An eye witness account narrated by S.C.Sharma is there in his article in the Indian Express nearly a decade back as to how his grave in Ghazni is deliberately looked upon with disgrace and indignity by the locals in particular with a managed message from the referees for the purpose that it is here where the infidel king of Delhi lies burried. Nothing but highly unfortunate it is that the Indian King who fought and had to die for the country was denied his burial in his own country nor even his Indian counterparts or later the very Government of India took any pains to bring back his remains to India.
