Significance of Jhansi Ki Rani’s Birth Anniversary
The life and story of Rani Lakshmi Bai have been a source of inspiration for millions of people across India. Born as Manikarnika Tambe, she was married to the Maharaja of Jhansi, Gangadhar Rao, in 1842 and has since been referred to as Rani Lakshmibai. When the British tried to take control of Jhansi, Rani was unwilling to cede control and joined the rebellion against the British in 1857. She led the successful defense of Jhansi against Company allies, but in early 1858 Jhansi fell to British forces under the command of Hugh Rose. Her unflinching fight against the British and her rebellion continues to be a source of inspiration for millions of people worldwide.
