While I agree with your basic take on the issue at hand, let me point out that patriarchy’s success does not depend on whether men are physically present or not. A familiar argument of colonial times given by ‘Barra Sahibs’, ‘Why discuss certain things in front of natives? Nowhere while reading it I felt she was egoistic as a queen but the people of the fort loved her and she loved them back befitting a queen. Once again, Ratan Singh has failed her. Which is not to condone him but to question what is this Padmavat myth all about? The one person who is slightly sensitive to the anti-Muslim bias told me simply, ‘They are not us.’ Which, again, is true. He becomes Bhishma fighting a valiant, powerful but ultimately not-as-skilled Arjuna in Khilji (what a SPECTACULAR role reversal), with Kafur standing in for Shikhandi who shoots a sheath of arrows at his back. I come back to this: there is a difference between depicting what happened, and glorifying it. She could have cut off her nose and disfigured herself and spread word about it! I had read that book at a second hand store. How did this Singhal princess get so quickly accustomed to Rajput values?
I presume he didn’t dare follow that line because sati would find much fewer apologists for it – the jauhar bit can at least have the “had to die before the enemy gets us”logic. Yes, of course, it was born out of a deeply patriarchal mindset where women were viewed as spoils of war by invading armies, and where their own society emphasized that this rite embodied honour and sacrifice. I think no one is denying that Jauhar is indeed a deeply problematic, horrifying practice. Whats not fair is some of the stuff they are saying. Brangan, I’m guess I’m confused by your argument that there is no glorification of Jauhar since it was a military strategy, an act of war if you will by a strong willed warrior princess. reminded me of Captain Haddock. Or for that matter the girl, Anita who couldn’t make it to Medical exams and committed suicide The scene didn’t really work for me. There is a scene in Far Pavillions, I think, where the girl is forced to do sati and as it starts, she is horrified and wants to move off and the villagers push her with a stick. There are scenes where she practices her skills.
Patriarchy does not mean imposed by men at the time the custom is carried out – it means a society bound by rules led down by men who view everything from the prism of being a man, for e.g. It is not just Indian history sources, even historypak.com has damning words for him. She rallies the women around to bravely hold off the Khiljis for as long as they can.

Change ). She thinks like a warrior. This story has been written from a self-evident ideological lens, one that reinforces regressive thought systems. Legends and myths, especially those told orally, are always modified, their essence re-interpreted, there is no one absolute version of it, just the most popular one, and each version reveals as much in ‘how’ it communicates the story as in what it leaves out and what it adds. The image of Jouhar has become an indelible identity for Rajputs and perhaps for many Indians who will hold on to this past of their ancestors that is fragmented and full of humiliation for an entire race. Yes, the story maybe of Padmini but it is also the story of war and its consequences. While, in this film, they do show the internal struggles that the Rajputs faced you are seeing the view from the Rajput perspective of a ruthless invader. In the movie’s context, I see parallels in the mass suicide and Operation Barbarossa of WW2. And we leave him after his back is pierced with arrows.) I don’t think Bhansali would do that to them and I think that is a good thing. I’m just not convinced you have to show it like that.
The film by Spielberg on the other hand took a giant step towards bringing in a closure by portraying a painful chapter of Jews with sensitivity, research and humility. That made it worse for her as she saw the upcoming massacre. From the credits, it appears that there were two other works involved. Padmavati was marooned on the island of Lacchmi, the daughter of the Ocean God.
