Lakshmibai, the Rani of Jhansi, born as Manikarnika, was the queen of the Maratha-ruled Jhansi State, situated in the north-central part of India. She was one of the leading figures of the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and became for Indian nationalists a symbol of resistance to the British Raj. Lakshmibai was born on 19 November 1828 in the holy town of Varanasi into a Marathi Brahmin family to Father Moropant Tambe and mother Bhagirathi Sapre (Bhagirathi Bai). Manikarnika was married to Raja Gangadhar Rao Newalkar who was the Maharaja of Jhansi, in May 1842 and was afterwards called Lakshmibai (or Laxmibai) in honour of the Hindu goddess Lakshmi. She gave birth to a boy, later namedDamodar Rao, in 1851, who died after four months. The Maharaja adopted a child called Anand Rao, the son of Gangadhar Rao’s cousin, who was renamed Damodar Rao, on the day before the Maharaja died. After the death of the Maharaja in November 1853, because Damodar Rao was adopted, theBritish East India Company, under Governor-General Lord Dalhousie, applied the Doctrine of Lapse, rejecting Damodar Rao’s claim to the throne and annexing the state to its territories. In March 1858, when the British attacked Jhansi, Rani Lakshmi Bai’s army decided to fight and the war continued for about two weeks. After a fierce war when the British army entered Jhansi, Rani Lakshmi Bai, tied her son Damodar Rao to her back and fought bravely using two swords in both her hands. She departed to Gwalior and a fierce battle was fought between the British and the Rani’s army. On the unfortunate day of 17 June of 1858, this great warrior martyred her life for India’s freedom. we are sharing the latest Collection of Independence Day Special Jhansi Ki Rani Laxmi Bai Images, Photos, Pics.
