  1. Prithvi shah died after running away to Gujarat when the Mughals tried to attack Garhwal. That gujju dude got what was coming to him. Okay video but felt it's seen from a desi point of view. Garhwal was a Himalayan kingdom that didn't allow contact with anyone. They reason why Garhwal and Kumaon were not under Mughal unlike India was because our culture and ways are different from Indians
