लोक में रहेंगे परलोक हु ल्हेंगे तोहू,
पत्ता भूली हेंगे कहा चेतक की चाकरी ||
में तो अधीन सब भांति सो तुम्हारे सदा एकलिंग,
तापे कहा फेर जयमत हवे नागारो दे ||
करनो तू चाहे कछु और नुकसान कर ,
धर्मराज ! मेरे घर एतो मतधारो दे ||
दीन होई बोलत हूँ पीछो जीयदान देहूं ,
करुना निधान नाथ ! अबके तो टारो दे ||
बार बार कहत प्रताप मेरे चेतक को ,
एरे करतार ! एक बार तो उधारो||

”जय राजपूत जय राजपूताना”
|| जय श्री राजपुताना||

Later in the early 17th century A. D. during the reign of Mughal emperor Jahangir, the Ruler of Bundi, Rao Ratan Singh gave the smaller principality of Kota to his son, Madho Singh, but when Sahajahan became the emperor, he issued a Farmaan in the name of Madho Singh, recognizing as him the King of Kota.
