    Amazing Story!

    Despite the fact that this is a historical fiction, one thing that attracted me to this book is its brilliant cover and the line - The Lion and the Stallion. ‘Badass’ they yelled at me and I was into this book.

    The story is set in a time of Indian History when the Marathas and the Mughals were at loggerheads with each other. It tells us the tale of the Peshwa, Bajirao Bhat, who rises to the position of Peshwa despite the state of turmoil in the Maratha Confederacy owing to both internal and ...

    Story of valour and courage. Not for romantics though :P

    Review of “The Peshwa” – Ram Sivasankaran

    After the movie Bajirao Mastani, we all became familiar with the story of Bajirao and his personal life with his wives Kashibai and Mastani. But the movie didn’t quite show the story before that, or how Rao gained and did justice to the title of Peshwa. This book brings out the life of Bajirao beginning from before his birth, when his father, Balaji Vishvanath Bhat was the Peshwa to the Chhatrapati Shahu. This book is work of fiction based on real ev...

    A Story even non-history buffs will love

    The Peshwa impresses you right from the cover. Bold colours of powerful red and gold dominate the scene with a rider astride his war horse, radiating raw strength and ferocity through his eyes and body language.

    The book retains its magnetic hold on you throughout and you will find it extremely difficult to put it down for even a moment. It’s a real page turner and keeps you hungering for more, especially when it ends. Without further ado, let’s look at what the book is all about.

    What’s t...

    Must read! Beautifully Written-not a history textbook!

    Honest Confession – I rarely read ‘historical’ books – but, I am glad I read this one!
    What attracted me? - The Book Cover (that piercing warrior’s gaze!) & the urge to read something new & different!

    It’s the kind of book which flows like poetry and you can see the characters moving in your mind’s eye (may I mention – I LOVED the writing style). I’d be at work, and wish I could sneak in a page or four!
    Demonetisation came to the rescue! Those long queues were the PERFECT reason for readin...

    A must read!

    If history fascinates you then this novel "The Peshwa: The Lion and the Stallion" by Ram Sivasankaran takes you a few centuries back in Mughal - Maratha period. In the 18th century, when Mughals were loosing their grip over Indian sub-continent and Maratha empire was gradually taking control over Indian states, under the guidance of Chhathrapathi Shahu (son of late Chhathrapathi Sambhaji) and the leadership of Balaji Vishwanath Bhat (Peshwa of the Maratha Confederacy), the empire was rising a...

    Enjoyed it thoroughly

    The Peshwa is a book that takes the readers on Bajirao Peshwa's journey from his birth to the first battle he wins against the Mughals. I started reading the book with a blank canvas because my knowledge about this great hero is restricted to the information I gathered from the movie “Bajirao Mastani”. However, I must say the author has done an excellent job in portraying the life journey of this great hero. The characters are well established and the storyline realistic.The description and n...

    Excellent debut novel

    Truth be told, I am not a big fan of mythological / historical fiction. But then, this book attracted me since Ram was my classmate at Indian School Muscat and I was keen to read his work considering all the good reviews it was getting. Is this a debut to remember for Ram? Let’s check it out.

    The blurb goes like this –

    It is the 18th century and despite the dominant Mughal rule, the Maratha Confederacy has established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the Indian Subcontinent. The fra...

    History brought back to life!

    I absolutely loved the story from the very beginning and I am in love with the author’s style of narration. He has painted the 18th century with his words for the reader to get lost into and live a life of court politics and warfare.

    In between, he brings the joys of life and gives each and every character the freedom to develop into actual people. The emotions that are portrayed are so good that even a person who does not know history will fall in love with the characters.

    The strength of ...
