MAHARANA PRATAP JAYANTI : HINDUAA SURAJ.

Happy MAHARANA PRATAP JAYANTI too all my brothers and sisters. It’s a day to celebrate 482nd brith anniversary to GREAT EMPEROR OF RAJPUTANA EMPIRE ” THE MEWARI SARDAN MAHARANA PRATAP SINGH SISODIYA” son of RANA UDAI SINGH SISODIYA. He was 13th RANA of SISODIYA DYNASTY. He born on 9th may 1540 in KUMBHALGARH FORT. MAHARANI JAIVANTA BAI his mother was his teacher too. He was destined to be the 54th ruler of Mewar, in the line of the Sisodiya Rajputs.

In 1567, when Crown Prince Pratap Singh was only 27, Chittor was surrounded by the Mughal forces of Emperor Akbar. Maharana Udai Singh II decided to leave Chittor and move his family to Gogunda, rather than capitulate to the Mughals. The young Pratap Singh wanted to stay back and fight the Mughals but the elders intervened and convinced him to leave Chittor, oblivious of the fact that this move from Chittor was going to create history for all times to come.

In 1576, the famous battle of Haldighati was fought with 20,000 Rajputs against a Mughal army of 80,000 men commanded by Raja Man Singh. The battle was fierce though indecisive, to the Mughal army’s astonishment. Maharana Pratap’s army killed more than 53,000 mughals and 10,000 went back to their camps as RAJPUTS were on fire to kill them all. At the end of war RAJPUTS were on better side. RAJPUTS AGAIN ATTACKED MUGHALS IN THE WAR OF

MAHARANA SLAMS AND CUT HALF BHALOL KHAN WITH HIS HOURSE IN JUST ONE STROKE OF SWORD.

On 16 September 1582, Pratap attacked the Mughal fortification of Dewair which was commanded by Mughal officer Sultan Khan. In the battle, Pratap’s son AMAR SINGH killed Sultan Khan and the Mughal army was forced to give up Dewair and retreat. 32000 Mughal army surrendered to maharana pratap . The retreating Mughal soldiers were pursued to AMET which was also captured by Pratap. Soon after, KUMBHALGARH, 36 garrisons (thanas) and 84 other posts were captured and the defenders killed. Pratap faced no resistance in Udaipur which had already been abandoned by the fleeing Mughal armies.

MAHARANA WON BOTH THE BATTLES

MAHARANA PRATAP

POWER OF MAHARANA PRATAP

.Maharana Pratap was one of the strongest warriors in India, with a height of 7 feet 5 inches. He used to carry 360 kg of weight, which included a spear weighing 80 kg, two swords weighing 208 kg and his armour was around 72 kg heavy. His own weight was more than 110 kg.

.While all the other Rajput rulers surrendered to Akbar and became members of his council, Maharana Pratap denied all the six diplomatic missions sent to him by Akbar for a peaceful alliance.

.Maharana Pratap had 11 wives from which Maharani Ajabde Punwar was his favourite. He had 17 sons and 5 daughters. All of his marriages were political alliances.

.Maharana Pratap’s horse, Chetak, is known for his loyalty to his master. The horse is said to have a tinge of blue on his coat. Chetal lost his life while jumping across a 21-feet wide river to save his master’s life.

.Maharana Pratap also owned an elephant, Ramprasad, who killed two war elephants of the Mughal army. When Akbar imprisoned Ramprasad, he didn’t eat anything or drink, losing his life on the 18th day.

.He survived n number of battles in his lifetime but died of an injury from the hunting accident while tightening the string of a bow with an arrow. The news of Maharana’s death made even Akbar cry.

ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS GREAT LEGEND FOREVER. PRIDE OF WHOLE INDIA.

Whenever you go to the HALDIGAHTI, must pay obeisance to the SOIL OF SACRIFICE AND BRAVERY.

” HINDUAA SURAJ, MEWARI RATAN MAHARANA PRATAP JI KI JAI HO, RAJPUTANA KI JAI, JAI EKLINGJI, JAI KESARI DHWAJ, JAI BHARAT MATA.”
