RANI LAKSHMI BAI OF JHANSI
December 31, 1856
Mirza Firuz Shah
Bahadur Shah II 1837–1857
Lakshmi Bai was one of the most resolute and patriotic leaders of the Revolt of 1857. Her struggle against the alien government was courageous and consistent and she inspired her followers with unbounded enthusiasm and zeal for her cause. When she took over the government of Jhansi, in June 1857, she was hardly twenty-two; but she proved to be a capable organizer and an ideal leader. She reorganized the administration of the State, raised troops and strengthened the defences of Jhansi. She fought with undaunted courage the force led by Sir Hugh Rose and when Jhansi fell she successfully made her escape to Kalpi to continue the struggle. On 17 June 1958, she finally met with a martyr’s death at Gwalior. In the words of Sir Hugh Rose, “she was the bravest and the best man on the side of the Mutineers.”

Rajasthan, Delhi and Agra are the jewels in India's crown. From fairy-tale palaces and epic forts to dizzying festivals and wildlife encounters, this is India at its unbeatable Bollywood best.
