Maharaja Badan Singh - Role of Jai Singh II

Role of Jai Singh II

In this success there was a great contribution of Jai Singh. Jai Singh was governor of Agra Suba. Badan Singh often visited Jaipur Darbar as per Royal customs on the occasion of Dashhara by presenting gifts. He also constructed a palace in Jaipur for his residence. That area is known as "Bas Badanpura" (Camp of Badan Singh) in Jaipur even today. Badan Singh never visited the Mughal Darbar even after inviting many times. He called himself a thakur and never treated himself as Raja. It was with a view to respect the feelings of people and protects his own self-respect.

Famous quotes containing the words role of, singh and/or role:

    The role of the writer is not simply to arrange Being according to his own lights; he must also serve as a medium to Being and remain open to its often unfathomable dictates. This is the only way the work can transcend its creator and radiate its meaning further than the author himself can see or perceive.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    When a rich man’s dog died, everyone commiserated. When a poor man lost his mother, no one noticed.
    Punjabi proverb, trans. by Gurinder Singh Mann.

    A famous theatrical actress
    Played best in the role of malefactress.
    Yet her home-life was pure
    Except, to be sure,
    A scandal or two just for practice.
