Manohar Dasji campaigned with Maharaja Man Singhji The Great for the Mughal King Akbar for three years (1585 – 1588) in North Western India & Afghanistan, culminating with the capture of Kabul & the defeat of the four major Afghan tribes including the Yusufzai and Mandar. Manohar Dasji’s battle trophies of enemy standards and colours were presented to Man Singhji with the request that they be incorporated in the Jaipur Colours. This Man Singhji did with pleasure and thus was created the Amber (Jaipur) ‘Panchranga’. The Red, Yellow, Green and Dark Blue have been taken from the captured Standards and the White from the old Jaipur Colours of the Kachnar Tree (Bauhinia variegata) in full bloom in the middle on a white backdrop. He also granted Manohar Dasji and his descendants the privilege of carrying the Old Jaipur Colours with a small ‘Panchranga’ in the top flag pole corner. The original Amber flag, the Kachnar Dhvaj, was Lord Ram’s pennant, as described by Pt. Bhavabhuti the celebrated 8th century Sanskrit poet and playwright in his epic “Uttararamacharita”. It’s worthwhile noting, that modern TV soap operas ahistorically show Lord Ram’s flag as a sun against a white backdrop, an incorrect prop to depict him as a king of the Rajput Solar Dynasty.
