Machhvan the canon was in a museum of canons, each of which had its "résumé" posted next to it of all the battles it was in, and whether it won or lost. Usually military museums are boring, long racks of swords and armor, but this was interesting to think of all the places that each of these chunks of iron had been. I imagined the Rajas looking over these résumés, interviewing the canons: "Ah, yes, Mr. Machhvan. I see you did a good job blowing Shivanji's army to bits at Purandar, I'm sure I can find a place for you in my army."
