What do you think to do when you are above 75? Invoke the blessings of your God and devote your time in singing his praises, or raise the flag of rebellion, and destroy the forces, who threaten to destroy the sanctity of your beloved motherland?
An aged Babu Kunwar Singh, the ruler of Jagdishpur province in today’s Bihar, chose the latter. A brave warrior, well trained in guerilla tactics, Veer Kunwar Singh was a dedicated environmentalist too. No sooner had he ascended the throne of Jagdishpur, than Babu Kunwar Singh started beautifying his province, which also helped him a lot in his guerrilla warfare against the British.
However, the real test of Veer Kunwar Singh came up when India was plunged into the Great Revolt of 1857, or as what noted Indian revolutionary Shri Vinayak Damodar Savarkar has rightly termed it as the ‘First War of Indian Independence’. When called upon to take arms, Kunwar Singh was above seventy-three and his health was continuously failing.
Yet, when duty beckoned him, he set himself up. Kunwar Singh, who had assumed the command of the rebellious soldiers at Danapur, led a surprise attack and liberated Arrah by 27th of July. However, the victory was short-lived, as Major Vincent Eyre recaptured it by 3rd of August 1857. During the ongoing fight, one of the bullets hit Kunwar’s left wrist. Having no other alternative, and knowing the consequences of keeping it intact, Veer Kunwar Singh cut his left arm off and offered it to Maa Ganga [Mother Ganges].
On 22nd April 1858, he fought the ultimate battle of his life. Despite being injured, Kunwar Singh not only fought back with elan but also pummeled the British Army brutally, so much that they had to retreat. Kunwar Singh had won his homeland back. Jagdishpur was free once again. However, he did not live to see the independent lands for long. He died, contented and as a free man, in his fort at Jagdishpur on 26 April 1858.
Veer Kunwar Singh’s life is a huge inspiration to millions of us Indians, as we face another wave of imperialism, this time the internal one. As quoted by Abraham Lincoln, “I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that the place will be proud of him.”
