Maharaja Samantsingh was the ruler of Jalore Garh. He had two queens, who had three son named Sagar, Viramdeo, and Kanahad and a daughter named Uma. Samantsingh declared Viramdeo Youvraj, so Sagar went to his Maternal Grand father at Delvada (Mount Abu). King Bhimsingh of Delvada had no son so Sagar became the king of Delvada.There were 140 villages under Delvada.

Malik Mohammed, king of Malva attacked on Ratansingh the king of Chitore. Ratansingh requested for help from Sagar. Mohammed could not fight against the brave army of Sagar so the army of Mohammed ran away. Rana Ratansingh was please to appoint Sagar the commander in chief. The Emperor of Gujrat sent a messanger to Sagar to accept his leadership, but he refused. Hence Ahmedshah the king of Gujrat attacked Chitore, but could not stand against the brave army of Sagar and he ran away.

Now Gujrat also came under Chitore kingdom. Mohammad Gauri placed a treaty for peace. So Sagar charged Rs.22 lacks in exchange of Gujrat. Rana Ratansingh was so pleased with the wisdom of Sagar that he made him the Chief Minister of Chitore State.

In VS 1197 Bohit the son of Sagar became the king of Delwara. At this occasion Acharya Shri Jindutt Suri was in Delwara. Bohit asked the Acharya what would be the fate of his kingdom. Acharya replied that now this kingdom will stay only for a short time, but if he becomes Jain then he would tell a remedy. Bohit replied if he becomes oswal, he would be bound to become a businessman. Acharya replied that you are aware of the nature of the universe. This wealth and the kingdom are like the leaves of a tree. It may disappear at any movement. Bad time may come at any movement and the kingdom may vanish. All your sons can't be the kings, but you could make them rich lastingly. On Bohit acception of the proposal Acharya showed him the right path of religion.

Next day she became oswal and her sons earned a lot of money in a very short period.
