A Maharajah in Warsaw

Post by silvermani on Tue Jul 11, 2017 1:07 pm


Why was a school in Poland named after Jamsaheb Digvijay Singh Jadeja, who once ruled Nawanagar? Jayaraj Manepalli has the story. 


Digvijay Singh not only welcomed the refugees, but also ensured that they had special accommodation, schools, medical facilities and opportunities for rest and recuperation at Balachadi, near Jamnagar. Singh also opened a camp at Chela and involved the rulers of Patiala and Baroda, with whom he had a good rapport in the Chamber of Princes, to help the refugees. 

Singh coordinated with the Polish Government in exile and took steps to impart education in Polish language apart from arranging for catholic priests to follow the religious mores of the refugees.
