The novel depicts social and political scenario of Deccan India during end of 16th century and beginning of 17th century, spread over period of 18 years during which Malojiraje ascended from a soldier to chief of Army. These 18 years were the most turbulent years in the history at ‘Nijamshahi of Ahmadnagar’, that ruled over the part of land, which is today’s Maharashtra, for a century during which there were two wars between Mughuls under leadership of Emperor Akbar and Chandbibi, the first empress of Deccan.
