Maharaja Ripudaman Singh of Nabha (1883–1942) was an exceptional ruler, a princely ‘rebel’ who resisted the paramount power in different ways. Forced to abdicate in 1923 ostensibly on account of ‘maladministration’, Ripudaman Singh was sent to Kodaikanal in 1928, where he died after 14 years in captivity without any recourse to judicial appeal. Set against the backdrop of Indian nationalism, Sikh resurgence, and British paramountcy, J.S. Grewal and Indu Banga trace the Maharaja’s political career, revealing the devious ways in which the paramount power dealt with traditional nobility. PRINTED PAGES: 378.
