Malwa l The Kingmaker?

The geopolitical situation in northern India was such that if any of the powerful states of the region could extend its control over Malwa, it could be well on its way to make a bid for the domination of entire north India. What features did Malwa possess to merit such attention?

Comments

  • Can anyone attempt this, please?
  • 1. Malwa is locked by hill ranges, thus is shield against invasions from north , Northwest or south.
    2. Malwa is hinterland and close to ancient ports of Gujarat.
    3. It is at crossroads of culture of north and south. And urban, pilgrim areas like Ujjain. You know the ancient trade route of Uttarapath and Dakshinapath later one passed through Ujjain.
    4. Black soil is productive for agricultural economy.
    Thus some of important sectors ideal for an ancient empire were available at malwa.
