Lachit Borphukan: Commander-in-Chief of the Ahom army.
Aurangzeb was the one of the most tyrannical rulers the world had ever seen. In his lust for the throne, he did not spare even his own father and his brothers. His hatred for the indigenous tribes knew no limits. Yet, his forces fell to the sword of one warrior, whose kingdom was nowhere close to comparison in terms with the Mughal Empire. The sword of one warrior Lachit Borphukan, who is one of the most glorious warriors to ever have graced this motherland, and whose legacy is carried forward by the National Defence Academy, in the form of a gold medal for the best cadet, dedicated solely to him.
A loyal commander in chief to the Ahom ruler Chakradhwaj Singha, Lachit Borphukan was the son of Momai Tamuli Borbarua, the first Borbarua (Governor of upper Assam and Commander-in-Chief of the Ahom army). A gifted commander from the beginning, Lachit Borphukan was commander in chief of the Ahom Army by King Chakradhwaj Singha.
However, the warrior Lachit Borphukan was unaware of the glory the future had in store for him. Tired of having to pay tributes to a thankless Mughal Empire, Chakradhwaj Singha aimed of restoring the pride of the Ahom kingdom.
Unfortunately, lachit had few resources to help him realize his dream. However, Lachit had a different approach altogether. He made the best use of the limited resources at hand, and soon enough, Guwahati was liberated from the control of the Mughals.
Unable to accept defeat, the Mughal tyrant Aurangzeb sent a large cavalcade under the command of Mirza Raje Ram Singh, the son of the same Mirza Raje Jai Singh who had once forced Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to sign the ignominious Treaty of Purandar. The two forces met at Saraighat, near the river Brahmaputra, with the width as narrow as 1 kilometer.
Lachit wasn’t in his best of health, and yet he exhorted his forces to fight till the better end. Despite having all the resources of hand, the Mughals suffered such a humiliating defeat that Aurangzeb could never dare to set his eyes on eastern India ever again. Sadly, Lachit Borphukan couldn’t taste the fruits of his success for long and he breathed his last only a year later in 1672.
