Manikarnika || Jhansi ki Rani Lakshmi bai
खूब लड़ी मर्दानी वह तो झाँसी वाली रानी थी… (Khoob Ladi Mardani Woh To Jhansi Wali Rani Thi..)
Lakshmibai, the Rani of Jhansi was born on 19 November 1828. She was one of the leading figures of the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and became a symbol of resistance to the British Raj for Indian nationalists. Laxmibai was born in a brahmin family in the holy town of Varanasi. Rani Laxmibai was named Manikarnika and was nicknamed Manu. She was more independent in her childhood than others of her age; her studies included shooting, horsemanship, fencing. Also, her childhood friends were Nana Sahib and Tatya Tope. Manikarnika was married to the Maharaja of Jhansi, Raja Gangadhar Rao Newalkar, in May 1842. And afterwards, her name changed as Laxmibai in the honour of Hindu Goddess Lakshmi.
In addition, Rani had a son, who died after four months. In 1853, Maharaja died. Then the British Council gave her Rs. 60,000 as pension to leave the place. At that time, she cried and told that “I shall not surrender my Jhansi” (Mai Meri Jhansi nahi doongi). Where Rani Lakshmibai has been known to the British most commonly as “the Rani of Jhansi”; in Hindi, she is often known as “Jhansi ki Rani”.
