My dream to ride a bike

When i was young me and my friends dreamed to go on bike rides.But then our customs didn't permit us . now a days young girls go on bikes in heavy traffic . Some of my friends got their own bikes when    they were in their 20s and fulfilled their ambitions. In my case i got opportunity to go on car but my bike dreams were still pending.

Recently i got opportunity to learn bike , on the first day it self i learned how to balance it    and started riding it.
I felt very happy while riding the bike on the beach road . I really felt like i went back in 20s. Riding a bike makes   me feel   very young.  My dream came true now i can go on bike to attend my personal work.  I'm so happy...

 I advice all the readers who don't know riding a bike to learn it. Really guys bike riding is such a fun.

Beauty of motherhood

First moment from my baby's birth then i was only 17 and don't no much thing about child care . My child got fever after 3days i was so scared and i didn't slept for hours thinking about her..  Before my baby's birth it was a hard task for people to get me out of sleep but after it my life was just changed. From that day my sleeping hours went down and down for second child and third child. Years passed by so . My children  started to growup. They started to go to school even then i didn't have sleep thinking about them.  When were in primary schools i didn't have sleep thinking about their safety , they were naughty kids at that time. When they are in their teens i still didn't have a perfect sleep from the time they leave home and come back. Now my elder daughter is in USA  even now i don't have a perfect sleep.

But there is happiness in this too . I think all around the world all mothers are same as me. Mother is the only one who can sacrifice for her kids .  May  all mothers bring their children with good habits and ; lovable feelings so that the world with out terrorism and a world with pure  love is created..

My Sweet Tour!!!

Who doesn't dream to go to a sweetest tour which will have many cheerable memories such a sweet memory was that when i went to AGRA,a beautiful place where a only monument for ever lasting love stands,the TAJ MAHAL.

I always thought to visit Agra from childhood,but i couldn't.I urged my father to take me to that place but due to economical problems we couldn't.The years passed by and i got married to a wonderful person and had three kids.Spending with my kids and with my husband my dream to go to AGRA is lost and the time passed by.I lost the hope that i would never had a chance to visit AGRA again then one fine day my husband surprised me by booking tickets to AGRA to visit TAJ MAHAL!!

I was surprised and my heart danced with joy to hear that iam going to my dream place AGRA.We started to AGRA by train with my husband and kids.It took us two days to reach there.We reached there by 2nd day night and it was a dark city with full of lightings,we booked a hotel to stay there.The next day morning we started our tour by riding on a HORSE CART,as AGRA itself has this unique facility in india as many other cities has but in AGRA everyone enjoys to ride in it.After one kilometer of travel we passed through a beautiful Gardens.We reached the TAJ MAHAL within a half an hour and the  first step of TAJ surrounding made me to feel the presence of Love.

The distant view of TAJ made me to feel that the love still lives in everyone's heart,it made me to think that the TAJ MAHAL whispered to me.When we touched the  white milky walls of TAJ MAHAL we felt the essence of Love.We spent many hours travelling through out the monument.Inside the Tajmahal we saw the true eternal lovers  laying side by side i.e, Emperor SHAJAHAN and MUMTAJ,their true love shows the eternity of Love where these days we couldn't find.Later on we visited AGRA FORT  too,from there we again saw the TAJ MAHAL. We also bought a famous Sweet called PEDA and it is so tasty to eat.

The same day we returned back to our city having lots of sweet memories of TAJ MAHAL and my dream came true and i slept with beautiful new dreams to visit again the TAJ MAHAL.
Hope you people go there someday.......

The Eternal Queen!!!

Lakshmi bai, The Rani (Queen) of Jhansi (c.19 November 1835 – 17 June 1858),(Devanagiri- झाँसी की रानी Marathi- झाशीची राणी), known as Jhansi Ki Rani, the queen of the Maratha-ruled princely state of Jhansi, was one of the leading figures of the First Indian Struggle for Independence, also known as the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and a symbol of resistance to British rule in India. She has gone down in Indian history as a legendary figure, the firebrand who began the Indian Revolution against British Colonialism.

Her story begins like this.....

"Originally named Manikarnika at birth ( nicknamed Manu ) , she was born on 19 November 1835 at Kashi (Varanasi) to a Marathi Karhade Brahmin family from Dhawadshi, District Satara, Maharashtra. She lost her mother at the age of four. She was educated at home. Her father Moropant Tambey worked at the court of Peshwa Baji Rao at Bitur and then travelled to the court of Raja Bal Gangadhar Rao Newalkar, the Maharaja of Jhansi, when Manu was thirteen years old. She was married to Gangadhar Rao, the Raja of Jhansi, at the age of 14.
After her marriage, she was given the name Lakshmi Bai. Because of her father's influence at court, Rani Lakshmi Bai had more independence than most women, who were normally restricted to the zenana: She studied self defence, horsemanship, archery, and even formed her own army out of her female friends at court.
Rani Lakshmi Bai gave birth to a son in 1851, however this child died when he was about four months old. After the death of their son, the Raja and Rani of Jhansi adopted Damodar Rao. However, it is said that her husband the Raja never recovered from his son's death, and he died on 21 November 1853 of a broken heart.
Because Damodar Rao was adopted and not biologically related to the Raja, the East India Company, under Governor-General Lord Dalhousie was able to install the Doctrine of Lapse rejecting Rao's claim to the throne. Dalhousie then annexed Jhansi, saying that the throne had become "lapsed" and thus put Jhansi under his "protection". In March 1854, the Rani was given a pension of 60,000 rupees and ordered to leave the palace at the Jhansi fort."


Meanwhile, unrest began to spread throughout India and in May 1857, the "THE FIRST WAR OF INDEPENDENCE" erupted in numerous pockets across the northern subcontinent. During this chaotic time, the British were forced to focus their attentions elsewhere, and Lakshmi Bai was essentially left to rule Jhansi alone. During this time, her qualities were repeatedly demonstrated as she was able swiftly and efficiently to lead her troops against skirmishes breaking out in Jhansi. Through this leadership Lakshmi Bai was able to keep Jhansi relatively calm and peaceful in the midst of the Empire’s unrest.

Up to this point, she had been hesitant to rebel against the British, and there is still some controversy over her role in the massacre of the British HEIC officials and their wives and children on the 8th June 1857 at Jokhan Bagh[4]. Her hesitation finally ended when British troops arrived under Sir Hugh Rose and laid siege to Jhansi on 23 March 1858. Rani Jhansi with her faithful warriors decided not to surrender. The fighting continued for about two weeks. Shelling on Jhansi was very fierce. In the Jhansi army women were also carrying ammunition and were supplying food to the soldiers. Rani Lakshmi Bai was very active. She herself was inspecting the defense of the city. She rallied her troops around her and fought fiercely against the British. 
An army of 20,000, headed by the rebel leader Tatya Tope, was sent to relieve Jhansi and to take Lakshmi Bai to freedom.

 However, the British, though numbering only 1,540 in the field so as not to break the siege, were better trained and disciplined than the “raw recruits,” and these inexperienced soldiers turned and fled shortly after the British began to attack on the 31st March. Lakshmi Bai’s forces could not hold out and three days later the British were able to breach the city walls and capture the city. Yet Lakshmi Bai escaped over the wall at night and fled from her city, surrounded by her guards, many of whom were from her women’s military.
Along with the young Damodar Rao, the Rani decamped to Kalpi along with her forces where she joined other rebel forces, including those of Tatya Tope. The Rani and Tatya Tope moved on to Gwalior, where the combined rebel forces defeated the army of the Maharaja of Gwalior after his armies deserted to the rebel forces. They then occupied the strategic fort at Gwalior. However on the second day of fighting, on 18 June 1858, the Rani died.
