Gora and Badal were legendary warriors from Chittorgarh Mewar who fought bravely for rescue of Rawal Ratan Singh .Gora was uncle of Rani Padmini and Badal was his nephew. In 1298 Alauddin Khilji by deceit had taken Ratan Singh ruler of Chittorgarh as prisoner. In ransom Khilji wanted nothing else but Padmini. A war council was held in which Padmini herself decided that Ratan Singh had to be rescued. The heroics were left to Padmini’s uncle Gora and his nephew Badal who devised a plan for Ratan Singh’s liberation. Word was sent out to the Khilji camp that Padmini would be delivered to him the day his army pulled out of their trenches. But there was a catch – her entourage of female servants and friends would accompany Padmini. Pandit Gaori Shankar Hirachand Ojha has clarified in the article published in Nagari pracharini-patrika, part 13, issue-1 under the title Gaur namak agyat
