About the Book

The Inamdar clan has demonstrated extraordinary strength, resilience, philanthropy, and courage. In this family history, Dr. Janak A. Inamdar examines the roots of his clan, paying particular attention to Ramsinh Rajsinh Inamdar. He painstakingly traces his family tree, starting with Ramsinh, and explores the heroism he demonstrated to earn the title Inamdar. Ramsinh played a central role in helping the Marathas take back India from Islamic conquerors. He also helped establish Baroda—one of the richest states of India. The author also explores the lives of several ancestors of who he considers the family’s founding father. Moreover, he paints a detailed picture of the political and economic situation of Gujarat in the 1690s and beyond, including the chaos in the aftermath of flooding and epidemics. Translated into English by Sudha Mehta, this book offers a revealing glimpse of an important family in India and how its founder set the stage for his descendants to succeed.
