What is common between Rani Lakshmi Bai and Birsa Munda?
It is well known that Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi was the heroine of the 1857 First War of Independence and sacrificed herself at the young age of 23 at the altar of freedom for the country against the British imperialists. She was born on 16th November 1835 and died in 17th June 1858.
Birsa Munda was the leader of the Santhal Revolt of the Adivasis who fought against the Britishers in the forests of the present Bihar and Jharkhand states and was killed. He was only 25 years having been born on 15th November 1875 and killed on 9th June 1900.
Both of them fought against the British, they became martyrs at their young age and their birthdays are in the same week, although Rani Jhansi was born 50 years earlier than Birsa Munda.
Our Revolutionary Homage to both these martyrs who died for the freedom of the country at a very young age!
