"This book entitled The Royal Gurjars: Their Contribution to India is an ancient history of Gurjars. Who they were and what they did for the protection of India. The Gurjars fought with the Arabs and the British. During the 19 century in the year 1857 this struggle was the spark of the first independence efforts in the districts of Meerut and Bulandshahr and elsewhere. Perhaps, this was the precursor of Quit India Movement, 1942.

"For those who are not aware of the sacrifices made by Gurjars for India it is a good informative book. They are a peaceful race and spread all over the country. In fact, the name of Gujarat came after Gurjars. There are at least 15 lac Gurjar Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir. The Gurjar saved Kashmir during first invasion of Pakistan when Pakistan annexed the area called Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK). Three Muslim Gurjars (nomads) including one women were awarded Padmashree by the President of India for this act of patriotism. There are Gurjar Sikhs and Hindu Gurjars in the country. The book is educative on all those matters. This book will be useful for the history students and the historians as such." (jacket)
