Battle of Lalsot[edit]

Rajputs and Marathas fought a pitched battle in May 1787 called the Battle of Lalsot. Such was the state of things when the ascendancy of Mahadji Scindia received a signal from the combined forces of Marwar and Jaipur and the[clarification needed] of Lalsot in which the Maratha chief was defeated. It was the signal for the Rajputs to resume their alienated territory. Nor was the Rana of Mewar backward on the occasion when there a momentary gleam of the active virtue of past days. Maldas Mehta was civil minister of Mewar with Mauji Ram as his deputy, both men of talent and energy. They first effected the reduction of Nimbahera and the smaller garrisons of Marathas in its vicinity who from a sense of common danger assembled their detachments in Jawad which was also invested. Sivaji Nana the governor capitulated and was allowed to march out with his 442 effects. At the same time the sons of the Kal Megh of Thikana Begun-Mewar assembling drove the Marathas from Begun, Singoli etc. and the districts on the plateau while the Choondawats redeemed their ancient fief of Rampura and thus for a while the whole territory was recovered. Elated by success the united chiefs advanced to Chardu on the banks of the Rarkia a streamlet dividing Mewar from Malwa preparatory to further operations. Had these been confined to the maintenance of the places they had taken and which had been withheld in violation of treaties complete success might have crowned their efforts but in including Nimbahera in their capture they drew upon them the energetic Ahilya Bai, the regent queen of the Holkar State, who unluckily for them was at hand and who coalesced with Sindhia's partisans.
