Selected Speeches of Maharaja Ganga Singhji

Selected Speeches of Maharaja Ganga Singhji of Bikaner, (1/e): (1880-1943 AD) by Tej K. Mathur from Dev Books.

The present book is a fine collection of the selected speeches delivered by Maharaja Ganga Singh of Bikaner. Maharaja Ganga Singh succeeded to the gaddi of his ancestors as the 21st Maharaja of Bikaner on 31st August 1887 when he was only seven years old.

The Maharaja assumed full powers of government on 16th December 1898. He ruled the state for a period of five decades – from 1887 to his demise in 1943. Under his rule the city of Bikaner had advanced beyond comprehension – from a small desert town into a thriving, modern, well-laid-out city.

Maharaja Ganga Singh was an intrepid and colourful personality, and had earned a high place in the gallery of great Indian rulers of the era. Apart from being a visionary administrator, he was also an eminent statesman and an eloquent orator who was held in the highest esteem all over the world.
