The King of Games
Polo is a dynamic equestrian sport which has been played for centuries throughout Asia and the Middle East. The British introduced the sport around the world.
The equestrian team sport is usually played outside on a field. In organized competition, this field is 300 yards long and 160 yards wide. During the game, four players mounted on horseback attempt to pass the ball down-field to hit it through the goal and score.MORE
AN IDEAL GAME OF RAJA'S
A polo match is well worth attending, since things can get quite exciting, with horses pounding up and down the field displaying incredible feats of agility and strength.
POLO GAMES & RULES
On a full sized grass field, each team has four people. In an enclosed arena usually played in winter, each team has three people. The rules are common sense based on the player having “right of way” in order to eliminate danger.MORE
ROYAL FAMILY OF RAJASTHAN
Sawai Man Singh II ( Mor Mukut Singh; 21 August 1912–24 June 1970 ) was the last ruling Maharaja of Jaipur State belonging to Kachwaha clan of Rajputs. He ruled the princely state between 1922 and 1949, when the state acceded unto the Dominion of India. Thereafter, he held office as Rajpramukh of Rajasthan between 1949 to 1956. In later life, he served as Ambassador of India to Spain. He was also a notable sportsman and celebrated polo player.
Sawai Man Singh II, was born Mor Mukut Singh, the second son of Sawai Singh (Thakur Sahib) of Isarda by his wife Sugan Kunwar from Kotla (Uttar Pradesh). His father was a nobleman belonging to the Kachwaha clan of Rajputs. Mor Mukut grew up in the dusty, walled township of Isarda, a chief Thikana of the Rajawat sub-clan which lies between the towns of Sawai Madhopur and Jaipur in present-day Rajasthan. His family was connected to the ruling house of Jaipur and Kotah (where his father's sister was married). The then-Maharaja of Jaipur, Sawai Madho Singh II, had been born the son of a former Thakur of Isarda and had been adopted into the ruling family of Jaipur.
Upon obtaining his ruling powers, Man Singh embarked on a program of modernization, creating infrastructure and founding numerous public institutions that would later result in Jaipur being selected the capital of Rajasthan. Although the Indian princes had relinquished their ruling powers, they remained entitled to their titles, privy purses and other privileges until the adoption of the 26th amendment to the Constitution of India on 28 December 1971. Accordingly, Man Singh II remained Maharaja of Jaipur until his death.
MAHARAJA BHAWANI SINGH JI
Brigadier Sawai Bhawani Singh Bahadur MVC (22 October 1931 – 17 April 2011) was the titular Maharaja of Jaipur from 24 June 1970 to 28 December 1971, when all titles, privileges, and privy purses associated with princely states in India were abolished by the 26th Amendment to the Constitution of India.He died at age 79 due to multi-organ failure.Born to Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II and his first wife, Marudhar Kanwar of Jodhpur, Bhawani Singh was educated at Sheshbagh School, Srinagar, The Doon School, Dehradun, and later Harrow School in the United Kingdom.As the first male heir born to a reigning maharaja of Jaipur for generations, his birth was a celebrated event in Jaipur.
Sawai Bhawani Singh ascended the throne of Jaipur on 24 June 1970 following the death of his father, and held the title of Maharaja until the abolition of the princely order, his Privy Purse and other royal entitlements by Indira Gandhi in 1971, although he remained generally honoured like most other erstwhile rulers.He married Princess Padmini Devi of Sirmur on 10 March 1966 in a ceremony held at Delhi.She was the daughter of his father's polo-playing friend HH Maharaja Rajendra Prakash of Sirmur by his wife Maharani Indira Devi.
Having half-brothers but no son, in November 2002 he adopted his daughter's elder son Padmanabh, who succeeded him as titular Maharaja of Jaipur upon his death.Sawai Bhawani Singh, was admitted to a private hospital in Gurgaon, Haryana on 29 March and died on 17 April 2011 following multi-organ failure.He was cremated on 18 April 2011 at Gaitore Ki Chhatriya, the royal crematorium in Jaipur with full state honours.
