In Hindi: Yash ki Dharohar
It is India's first sound and light show produced by a non-governmental private organisation. The hi-tech extravaganza, conducted every evening at the magnificent Manek Chowk in The City Palace, brings alive the rich history of the House of Mewar for domestic and foreign visitors alike. The show has been created to spread awareness, interest and pride in the history of Mewar that stretches back to 1500 years. It is the deep baritone voice of Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar of Udaipur, the present Custodian of the House of Mewar, which welcomes guests at the start of the son et lumiere and sets the mood for the evening. The 12 episodes in the show, spanning one hour, recreate the devotion of the dynasty's founding father Bapa Rawal, the glory of Rani Padmini and Chittorgarh, the sacrifice of Panna Dhai before moving to present the establishment of Udaipur in the sixteenth century.
The son et lumiere is thus a journey through the glorious history of Mewar, a celebrated chapter in the history of India.
The show in Hindi, titled Yash ki Dharohar has the script written by Pandit Narendra Mishra, the official court-poet of the House of Mewar. The richness of the Hindi language, and the poetic compositions in veer-ras, are an auditory treat for the lovers of this language.
It follows the English production in style and flourish, all the while maintaining the subtleties and flavour that the Hindi language lends to the dramatic and traumatic history of Mewar over 1500 years.
