Panipat was Vishwas Patil’s commercially successful and critically acclaimed debut novel about the third battle of Panipat.
Summary Of The Book
Panipat, Vishwas Patil’s first literary work, takes a look at the third battle of Panipat, which took place on January 14, 1761. It presents the historical battle that progressed between the Maratha army and the army of Ahmad Shah Abdali, the founder of the Afghan Empire.
The book initially follows the battle that takes place between the army of Najib-ud-Daulah, an ethnic Pashtun, and the Scindias. It then proceeds to cover the northward progress of the massive Maratha forces to counter the threat of Najib-ud-Daulah.
Eventually, the Maratha infantry and cavalry succeed in entering the Mughal stronghold of Panipat. Here, they are surrounded by a huge force of Shia Muslim and Afghan soldiers who block their source of ration. The resulting frustration and malnutrition takes its toll on the Maratha army.
The book speaks of the valiant efforts of men like Jankoji Shinde, Nanasaheb Peshwa, and many other Maratha compatriots. The author has also countered the common negative portrayal of Sadashivrao Bhau, one of the Maratha leaders, with strong appreciation of his war tactics.
The book highlights the myriad experiences that cast their shadows on the battleground, including bloodshed, depression, disease, desolation, martyrdom, betrayal, death, fear, victory, loss, hatred, ignorance, and vengeance.
It also focuses on certain key points pertaining to India as a federal nation. Some of these points include the role of religion, the battle for supremacy between the North and the South, the detrimental influence of regional politics, the role of language, and the importance of unity. At the end of the book, the author has provided insights into his research efforts, which included several trips to Panipat.
Panipat was originally written in Marathi and first published on October 20, 1988. Since then, it been translated to English and several other Indian languages, including Hindi. The book was a monumental success. Within the first couple of years of its release, it sold 20,000 copies in 7 editions. It also won as many as 18 awards for its literary excellence. Some of those awards were the Bhasha Parishad Award (Kolkata), the V. M. Joshi award, the Priyadarshini National Award (Maharashtra), and the Nath Madhav Award (Goa). Ranagan, a play based on Panipat and directed by Waman Kendre, was also much appreciated. It was performed by Chandralekha, a famous troupe. This edition of the book is the 33rd edition of the original Marathi novel.

श्री. विश्वास पाटील यांची 'पानिपत' ही कादंबरी केवळ आणखी एक ऐतिहासिक कादंबरी कादंबरी नाही. ती वेगळ्या प्रकृतीची ऐतिहासिक कादंबरी आहे.बहुसंख्य ऐतिहासिक कादंबर्या या गतकालचा गौरव करणार्या आणि ऐतिहासिक मनोवृत्तीचा अंगिकार करणार्या असतात. भूतकालात वर्तमान शोधणार्या अगर भूत, वर्तमान, भविष्य यांच्यातील अनुसंधान पाहणार्या नसतात. हे घडण्यासाठी ऐतिहासिक घटनांचा अन्वयार्थ तपासणारे भान सतत जागे असावे लागते. श्री. विश्वास पाटील हे भान बाळगतात. त्यामुळे 'पानिपत'मध्ये एकमेकात गुंतलेली ऐतिहासिक घटनांची मालिका, उन्हापावसात, थंडीवार्यात शेकडो कोस मोहिमेवर निघालेले लढाऊ दल आणि लवाजमे, राजकारणातले डावपेच, खलबते, स्वार्थलोभ, वासनाविकार, ऐतिहासिक व्यक्तींची खाजगी, सार्वजनिक स्वप्ने, रोमहर्षक घटना आणि दैवगतीचे उलटेसुलटे पलटे, किल्ले, तटबंद्या, नद्यानाले, पिकांनी श्रीमंत झालेली भूमी यांची
ठसठशीत वर्णने तर आहेतच पण त्याबरोबर विशिष्ट समाजाचे, वंशाचे आणि जातीजमातीचे उपजत स्वभावविशेष आणि गुणदोष यांची थक्क करणारी जाण आहे. ही जाण या कादंबरीच्या गुणवत्तेचे मर्म आहे. त्यामुळेच ही ऐतिहासिक कादंबरी म्हणजे राष्ट्रधर्म ओळखणार्या एका आधुनिक मनाने घेतलेला एक गतकाळचा शोध असे जाणवते.
१४ जनेवारी २०११ ला पानिपतच्या लढाईला २५० वर्षे पूर्ण झाली. त्यानिमित्ताने काढलेली विषेश आव्रुत्ती मिळाली. या आव्रुत्ती पासून कादंबरीत विविध घटनांना अनुसरून चित्रे टाकली आहेत.

आता वाचण्याचा श्रीगणेशा !!!
i read this novel and i should say that it was so amazingly written, i after 4 months of reading this novel i always feel that had i also been there to fight for my country i just i cant't imaging that we lost the war. it is making my hurt sour.
Today's fact is all political parties are playing their political games by taking name of Shivaji Maharaj and Maratha Empire followed. But reality of the Empire was way different.
This novel actually takes us to the time when Peshwa's were in rule. I found many things about us, about our past which no one told me before. Now I really feel pitty for so called forward genetration who are not aware of our glorious history. A must read book to have hint of What our ancisters were and how they created history.
Can't rate below 5/5 :)
