    Lightbulb Elephant of Dewas Senior


    I opened a new thread for the elephant of Dewas Senior alone, so you can follow the making of and the research details.

    First, I'm copying the photos and information that I already posted in the ideas for 2018 thread.

    Dewas State was a territory within Western India, which was the seat of two Maratha princely states during the British Raj: 'Dewas Junior' - Jivaji Rao ('Dada Saheb') and Dewas Senior - Tukoji Rao ('Baba Saheb').

    The Junior branch had an area of 440 sq mi (1,100 km2) and had a population of 54,904 in 1901, while the Senior branch had an area of 446 sq mi (1,160 km2) and a population of in 62,312 in the same year.[3] Both Dewas states were in the Malwa Agency of the Central India Agency. After India's independence in 1947, the Maharajas of Dewas acceded to India, and their states were integrated into Madhya Bharat, which became a state of India in 1950. In 1956, Madhya Bharat was merged into Madhya Pradesh state.
