How did an illiterate twenty three year old Courtesan make headlines in the global press for months? How did she cause the downfall of a very powerful monarch?
Mumtaz Begum entered the employ of the Maharajah of Indore at age thirteen and soon became his favourite. But the gilded cage was not for Mumtaz. She tried to escape again and again. Like an animal on the run, she was hunted down and brought back. Till she met a man called Bawla and discovered love. This dealt a blow to the royal ego. And hundreds of the Royal employees were sent out to bring her back. Alive.
This narrative, based on intensive research in Newspapers, Police and Judicial archives of 1925 are the real events behind the brutal murder of Abdul Kadir Bawla on Malabar Hill, Bombay. It is about the abdication of the thirteenth Maharaja of Indore
