Raja Jatwan raised the siege of Hansi and prepared for an obstinate conflict. “The armies attacked each other” says the author of Taj-ULMaasir “like two hills of steel, and the field of battle [on the borders of the Bager country] became tulip-dyed with the blood of warriors … Jatwan had his standards of God-plurality and ensigns of perdition lowered by the hand of power.
