    One thought on “Bakhar of Panipat”

    1. Beautifully written. Paints an excellent picture of not just the battle, but also of the लेखनशैली of that age. It is a treat to read the बखर in archaic Marathi - it is quite handy to have the text in both languages in the book. For those interested in history, highly recommend.
