*

Little known, little remembered, this is the story of Begum Hazrat Mahal.

The soul of the 1857 War of Independence; orphaned poetess of the Chowk; captivating wife of King Wajid Ali Shah of Awadh; the Rani of Jhansi's contemporary and soul sister; freedom fighter and misunderstood mother; illicit lover and intrepid war leader--she risked everything only to face the greatest betrayal of all...

This is a salute to Hazrat Mahal--a dazzling meteor in Indian history.
