JHANSI KI RANI was the great heroine of the First War of Indian Freedom. The life history of the Rani of Jhansi Lakshmibai is very inspiring and her defence against the British is exemplary even today. She became a widow at the tender age of 18 and by the tender age of 22, she had become a martyr in the service of our motherland. The valour and brave death she chose, which gave an inspiration to the various leaders, patriots belonging to the Gadar party in the First World War, the organization of Shahid Bhagat Singh and to all revolutionaries from Swatatntryaveer Savarkar to Subhashchandra, is magnificent. Lot of literature has been written on the life history of Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi.

 “Khoob ladi mardani vah to Jhansiwali Rani thi” with these words by subhadra Kumari chauhan, Rani Lakshmi bai of Jhansi has been immortalised in history and she lives on in popular imagination. The fervor that she aroused gave birth to various leaders, revolutionaries who finally freed our nation from the British. “ I studied Jhansi Ki Rani” Hindi poem in my eighth class written by Smt.Subhadra kumari chauhan and I will remember Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi forever.

Lakshmibai, the Rani of Jhansi, is a great source of inspiration to all human beings of the Indian Subcontinent for her patriotism, heroism, sense of self-respect,discipline. She is embodiment of sacrifice,valour, strategy, womanliness, kindness, deathlessness, martyrdom. She was young in years, but her decisions were mature. Such an confident and dominant women will not be find any where! The words of the British General Sir Hugh Rose who fought against the Maharani several times and was defeated time and time again stated: "Of the mutineers the bravest and the greatest commander was the Rani".

On this day, let’s remember those who died for this country and remind ourselves that we are safe and breathing free air because of their sacrifice.I wish everyone to remember the sacrifice of our great freedom fighters and try our best to fulfil theirs dreams of the Independent India they dreamt of. The freeness what we breath today comes from such great people, who actually sow the seed of revolution which in turn helped every Indian to saw the dawn of independence. Let us all be grateful to all those great men and women of India who made the supreme sacrifice while defending our Motherland!

Jhansi ki rani is a symbol of commitment,passion and love for the country.Its not about being a man or a woman,she symbolises that when a person has a purpose in life and the courage to pursue it no matter the body is of a man or a woman,no matter what the conditions are and no matter how hard life is on you,the soul gives you the strength to carry on.So stick to your commitments and nobody can stop you.
