History

Keeping an eye on the instincts and traditions of his people and combining persuasion with force, Maharaja Suraj Mal proceeded cautiously to make the Jats acquiesce in the institution of Kingship, matrimonial relations with important families, grant of appanages to the members of the royal family. Under this policy Wair was given first to Pratap Singh, son of Badan Singh, and then to his son Bahadur Singh. [1] Pratap Singh with the title of "Raja" was granted Wair. [2]

Suraj Mal added stately magnificence and provided patronage to art and letters. We have for the first time come to know that it was at the instance of Suraj Mal, that Somnath, a poet whom he patronized, wrote a long poem, Brijendra Vinod. Later on when Somnath retired to Wair, Pratap Singh, the brother of Suraj Mal, extended to him his patronage. So also did Bahadur Singh son of Pratap Singh, a little afterwards.
