Born on 21st April, 1930 at Maroth in Nagore District of Rajasthan. Dr. K.C. Jain got his Ph.D. and D.Litt. in 1956 and 1963 respectively, from the Rajasthan University.

Vikramaditya was one of the greatest rulers of the world but his greatness has been ignored by historians.

This work of Vikramaditya was taken because it was of great importance and it was interpreted wrongly. In our opinion no one can stand in comparison with this wonderful personality. It was not a myth but reality. Some scholars have tried to prove his historicity.

In chapter 1, the origin, settlement and migration of the Malavās have been discussed, but there are differnt views among the scholars.
