In the political battle that broke out between the Aam Aadmi Party and the BJP in Delhi, Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia described himself as a descendant of Maharana Pratap. After which the BJP’s attack intensified. Be it Maharana Pratap or Shivaji, there is no talk of winning in the field of politics on the pretext of such great men. But, in the midst of all this, one important thing always gets left behind. That is how Maharana Pratap became a superhero, which women contributed to making him a warrior.

There was a conflict between Maharana Pratap, the mighty ruler of the Guhil-Sisodia dynasty of Mewar, and the Mughal emperor Akbar. Guerrilla wars used to happen every day. In the meantime, such an incident happened, due to which the commander of Akbar, who came to attack Maharana Pratap, also bowed down in front of him. The name of this commander was Abdurrahim Khan-i-Khana. The same Rahim, whose poems, couplets, we have been reading since childhood. He was one of the Navaratnas of Akbar and also the Mughal general.

In the battle that broke out between Akbar and Maharana Pratap, Rahim went out to attack Pratap with his detachment, but Pratap’s son Kunwar Amar Singh not only defeated Rahim, but also took him captive along with his wives and daughters and reached Pratap. Seeing the women captive, Maharana was very angry and ordered to send them immediately with respect.

On the one hand, a hero who wreaks havoc on enemies with a spear, and on the other hand, a hero who does not let the honor of the women of the same enemies’ family come down. The role of the women present around him is very important in shaping the personality of this hero.

The majestic son of 20 mothers, brother of 20 sisters and father of 5 daughters, Maharana Pratap is not only taken by people so proudly even today. The tales of the bravery of Queen Karnavati, the sacrifice of Panna Dhai and the wisdom of Queen Jaywantabai, the rites received from her made Maharana Pratap an immortal hero.

Bravery inherited from grandmother

Tales of the bravery of Maharana Pratap’s grandmother Rani Karnavati have become a part of folk songs. After marrying Rana Sanga, the ruler of Mewar in the 16th century, Maharani Karnavati supported him from court politics to the battlefield. Rana Sanga i.e. Rana Sangram Singh was married to Sisodia at a very young age. With her intelligence and knowledge, she started taking responsibilities in the functioning of the state. After the death of Rana Sanga, he succeeded his stepson Ratan Singh, who was killed in a battle in 1531. When the threat of attack from Sultan Bahadur Shah of Gujarat increased, Rani Karnavati united the Rajputs and arranged for the security of the Rakhi Dam state to Mughal Emperor Humayun. When Bahadur Shah invaded Mewar in 1535, he fought it firmly with his soldiers. Seeing the defeat in front of a large army of Bahadur Shah, he committed Jauhar on 8 March 1535.

Maharana Pratap was such a Rajput king, who did not let the Mughal emperor Akbar live in peace in and around Mewar during his lifetime.

Lessons learned from Panna Dhai

After Rani Karnavati, Rana Sanga’s nephew Banveer seized power. To avoid any danger, he killed Vikramaditya, the son of Queen Karnavati and went to kill Udai Singh II. On receiving the news, Panna Dhai put his son to sleep in place of Udai Singh. Whom Udai Singh killed. In this way, Panna Dhai saved the life of Maharana Pratap’s father by sacrificing his son. Rana Pratap grew up listening to similar stories of sacrifice and bravery.

Learned horse riding from mother and stick to it

Maharana Pratap was born to Udai Singh II and Maharani Jaiwanta Bai. Udai Singh’s second queen Dhir Bai Bhatiani started a conspiracy against Jaiwanta Bai to make her son the king. Jaywanta Bai went to little Pratap to live in a mansion under the Chittor fort. Where he crafted Pratap as a brave warrior, made him brave. She herself was a wonderful horseman. He made Pratap proficient in horse riding and also made an excellent strategist. Gave them the rites to stick to their resolutions.

Had 11 marriages, one queen helped at every step

According to historian Rima Hooja, who wrote the book “Maharana Pratap: The Invisible Warrior”, Maharana Pratap had 11 marriages. Out of which Maharani Ajabde Panwar was the most dear to him. The ruins of the Garh Mahal, testifying to the love of 17-year-old Pratap, who married 15-year-old Ajabde in 1557, are still present in Bijolia. Queen Ajabde accompanied her at every step. During the war against the Mughals, she stood with her in the forest with her children. It is said that when Pratap used to see Ajabde, he used to remember his mother. Another of his queens, Phool Bai Rathore, was equally courageous and helped him in the affairs of the state. It is believed that Phool Bai and Pratap were childhood friends. Along with them, Rani Amarbai Rathore, Rani Jasobai, Rani Alamdebai, Rani Champa Kanwar, Rani Lakhabai, Rani Solankhinipur Bai, Rani Shahmati Bai, Rani Ratnavati Bai Parmar and Rani Khichar were also married to Ashabai.
