We remember the Brave Indian female fighters that made the country proud and played an important role in getting independence from British in 1947 on Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay's birth anniversary.
Rani Lakshmi Bai
The very famous, household name of the queen that died fighting for her kingdom still ignites bravery among the people of the country. Rani Lakshmi Bai was the first prominent women freedom fighter who participated in the very first freedom rebellion of 1857.
From movies to books, to songs, Rani Lakshmi Bai is still alive in the hearts of people. The bravery of Rani Lakshmi Bai was such that it made her enemy Sir Hugh Rose praise her and term her as most dangerous of all Indian leaders.
Begum Hazrat Mahal
Begum Hazrat Mahal was the queen of Awadh, which rebelled against the British East India Company for power. The supporters of Begum seized control of Lucknow as an act of rebellion against british.
She took over the kingdom after the death of her husband, Nawab Wajid Ali, and played an important role in turning Indians to fight for independence.
Sarojini Naidu travelled to various places over India to make people aware towards the freedom struggle and invoking them to participate. Her lectures aroused the nationalism in people and had them participate in the struggle to get independence.
