This is a topic so widely responded and shared by the readers through their comments and emails. Some of the readers, who are themselves good research scholars on Prithviraj Chauhan, like a reader who prefers himself to be called as Prithviraj, and they are the ones who are not only well read on the subject but are still doing marathon work adding a new perspective to the story every now and then through their comments. While going through these enormous sized comments running in several pages, at times I develop a feeling as if the topic is assuming proportions beyond history with a major tilt towards a robust romance emanating from Sanyogta as a source, as a sex symbol. My writer friend Prithviraj, in one of his comments, made a mention of how Mohd.Ghori, after he defeated Prithviraj Chauhan, used to have sex with the number of queens of the king so defeated as per his version, at one stage including Sanyogta. He even used to have sex with them even during the period they were having menstrual cycle, or yet even he used to sodomize them. At least I am the one who could never come across such a narrative in whatever large number of books I have gone through on the subject. Films and television serials have of course highlighted the romantic side bordering sex as a theme but they too have not vulgarised it beyond proportions. To me such an expression sounds to be nothing more than imagining what one could do as his obsession for sex. With due regards to Prithviraj, the writer and the commenter, I find myself unable to consider such a narrative essentially as a matter of history, imagination wise this could of course be an exception. As requested by Prithviraj (writer) himself, I have a mind to write more on otherwise much powerful a romantic side of the love story relating to Sanyogta and Prithviraj, later with an encroachment made by Mohd. Ghori, but this may not go beyond the precincts of grace and dignity of love, of course with justice to the very historical reality of the events.
I have no reason to disagree with the said writer on the fact that a large chunk of Indian territory was lost to invaders because of Prithviraj Chauhan’s over lust resulting into a situation where he was just unable to devote the required amount of time with a robust monitoring on war front against the enemy. I don’t take it as the said writer’s prejudice against Prithviraj Chauhan, I rather take it as a hard truth that cost freedom to the country.
