Jamnagar royal family slaps notice on ayurvedic college - Times Of India
Shatrushalyasinhji Jadeja of the erstwhile princely state of Jamnagar has slapped a notice on Gulab Kunverba Ayurvedic Society in Jamnagar to hand over the land to the royal family as they had failed to utilize it for the given purpose.[...]

The land belongs to the Jamnagar royal family and ownership of the land remained with the family. The land was given only for educational purpose to Gulab Kunverba Ayurvedic Society. But at present, the members of society have been using it for commercial purpose.

Mysore

Mysore Palace rankes second on NY Times list of 31 Must-seeplaces of the world
The Mysore Palace also called as the Amba Vilasa Palace is the official residence of the Wodeyar royal family. Situated in the middle of the city, the number of tourist visiting the palace has been steadily increasing every year. According to the Karnataka tourism department officials, going by the growing tourist footfalls at the palace, it could be the numero uno soon.


[...]

The original Mysore Palace refers to the palace within an old fort and built by the Wodeyar king in the 14th century. Thereafter over the years the palace was once burnt down when a massive fire broke out and it was demolished and constructed a multiple number of times. The current palace construction was commissioned in 1897, and it was completed in 1912 and expanded later around 1940.
The Mysore Palace will celebrate its 100 years of completion next year.

The Hindu : Remembering a warrior regent
Pazhassi Raja is remembered in the history of Kerala as a brave warrior king who led battles against the intruding Mysore army and the East India Company's army much before the rebellion of 1857.
The participation and assistance from people of different communities and tribes in his battles against the British army made them important in the Colonial history of South India.

Cursed royalty | Deccan Chronicle
[...]
Since it is impossible to please everyone, curses would have been part of the job as Princess Deepshika Singh Deo, who is married into Orissa’s royal family says, “In India and Nepal royal families historically were prone to getting cursed because of their role as protectors of their people.
When rulers failed to meet expectations, ire was vented by way of a curse. Maybe if Marie Antoinette or the Russian tsars had been Indian royalty, they too would have been cursed instead of being executed.”

Pataudi

Saif Ali Khan officially installed as 10th Nawab of Pataudi.

It was widely reported that Saif wanted to push his career in Bollywood and said his late father (see post # 159) to be the last Nawab.
But then Saif has changed his mind since the royal family and the local villagers were asking him not to break the tradition.

Bollywood actor becomes Indian prince | DAWN.COM
The Hindu : States / Other States : Saif Ali Khan anointed Nawab of Pataudi
Saif Ali Khan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hindu
Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan was on Monday anointed the tenth Nawab of Pataudi at a ceremony at his ancestral palace here over a month after his father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi passed away. The 41-year-old actor was made the Nawab at a pagdi ceremony this morning at the Ibrahim Palace here, where heads of 52 villages tied a white turban around his head as mother Sharmila Tagore, sisters Saba Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan looked on. Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda was also present.

As the newly appointed Nawab, Mr. Khan will have to take care of his father’s estate, their ancestral home, eye hospital and other charitable institutions.
Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, whose mother was the daughter of the last Nawab of Bhopal, Hamidullah Khan, was born in Bhopal and was the mutawalli (patron) of the Auqaf-e-Shahi, the body managing the religious and charitable endowments of the erstwhile princely State.

The late Pataudi took over from his mother as heir in the Bhopal royal family, allowing him to become the mutawalli of dozens of shrines, orphanages and religious trusts that are part of the princely Waqf properties of Bhopal.
As mutawalli, the late Pataudi governed religious properties worth over Rs 2,000 crore, including Bhopal’s Jama Masjid. He also enjoyed special discretionary powers to sanction free lodging at the Rubat (building) at Mecca and Medina.
The Pataudi palace in Gurgaon, built in 1935, is sprawled across 25 acres and is divided into two parts, a main building and an annexe. One part of it has been turned into a heritage hotel where a number of English and Hindi films have been shot.
