Vokar Agreement

Two months after the Tomed incident, the Romulan Star Empire forced the Federation to sign the Treaty of Algeron, which prohibited the development of camouflage technology within the Federation in exchange for the agreement of the Star Empire to retreat to its borders and recall all its diplomatic missions and its citizens, to isolate them effectively on the political scene. In 1892 in Ajwa, Sayajirao planned a water supply program for Baroda that would use gravity to provide drinking water to the people of Baroda. To this day, much of the city of Vadodara derives its drinking water from this source. During his reign, a large network of narrow-distance Gaekwars Baroda State Railway, which began in 1862, was extended with Dabhoi to its focal point, a network that remains the largest narrow-track network in the world. Sayajirao was also a promoter of Indian classical music. In 1886, Ustad Moula Bux founded the Academy of Indian Music (Gayan Shala). This academy later became the Conservatory of Music and is now the Faculty of Performing Arts of Maharaja Sayajirao University in Vadodara. Next to Ustad Moula Bux, Sayajiro`s court has praised such great artists as Inayat Khan and Ustad Faiyyaz Khan. The first All India Music Conference was held in Baroda in 1916.

The whole war would probably have taken place, except that the Klingon Empire from 1875 to 1939 on the side of the Sayajirao Gaekwad III Federation (born Gopalrao Gaekwad; 11 March 1863 – 6 February 1939), the maharajah of Baroda State and who remains remembered for the reform of much of his state during his reign. It belonged to the gaekwad royal dynasty of the marates, which ruled parts of present-day Gujarat. His first wife died young of tuberculosis, and On 28 December 1885 Sayajirao married another Maratha lady from Dewas, Shrimant Lakshmibai Mohite (1871-1958), who became Chimnabai II after his marriage. A staunch defender of Indian women`s rights, she has been as voluptuous and capable as her husband for the 53 years of her marriage and has become as well known throughout India. They had several sons and a daughter: although he was a prince of an indigenous state, he retained his rights and status, although this put him in conflict with the Indian government. Sayajirao had often clashed with them in the principle society and governance, had ongoing and long-standing verbal and written disputes with the inhabitants as well as with the viceroy and Indian government officials. On 29 December 1876 he was awarded the title of Farzand-i-Khas-i-Daulat-i-Inglishia. In 1877, 1903 and 1911, he visited the Delhi Durbars. it was 1911 in Delhi Durbar that an incident occurred, which have a considerable impact on Sayajirao`s relations with the Raj. To commemorate his vision and administrative capabilities, the Baroda Management Association launched the Sayaji Ratna Award in 2013, named after him.

After a long and turbulent reign of 63 years, Sayajirao Gaekwad III died on February 6, 1939, a shy month of 76 years. His grandson and heir Pratapsinhrao Gaekwad became the next Maharaja of Baroda.
