Manikarnika in #MeToo India: Why Kangana Ranaut is the Queen of Jhansi we need Bundele Harbolo ke mooh humnein suni kahani thi, khoob ladi mardani woh toh Jhansi waali rani thi.." - These lines from the celebrated poem 'Jhansi Ki Rani' by Subhadra Kumari Chauhan and can be roughly translated as, "From the bards of Bundela we have heard this story; she fought much valiantly, she was the queen of Jhansi." The image that comes to mind is of the brave woman, astride a horse, a sword held high and a child strapped to her back. That is the legend of the fierce Rani Laxmibai, who led her army to fight the British and died on the battlefield at the young age of 29. Laxmibai’s name shines in pages of Indian nationalist history and is considered one of the first instances of female heroism of the Indian national uprising. Songs, ballads, poems, art and theatre have all extolled the virtues of Laxmibai. source:indiatoday
