आज हम अपनी सभ्यता और संस्कृति को पूर्ण रूप से भूल चुके हैं | जिस संस्कृति को हम लोग भूल रहे हैं और जिन मूल्यों को हम को चुके हैं उनको अपनाकर अनेकों देश आज विकसित अवस्था में हैं और हम क्या हैं आप समझ रहे होंगे |
आज जिस मार्शल आर्ट की कला को हम सीखने के लिए लालायित रहते हैं उसके बारे में हम यही सोचते हैं की यह तो चीन की देन है .. जबकि हकीक़त इसके उल्टे है |
इस कला का ज्ञान चीन ने नहीं बल्कि चीन के साथ पूरे विश्व को हमने दिया था |
लेकिन विडम्बना यह है की इस विद्या के जन्मदाता का नाम ही हमने आज तक नहीं सुना | यह सब मैकाले की शिक्षा नीति का ही प्रतिफल है |
आज जिसे चीन, जापान, थाईलैंड आदि देशों में जिसे भगवन की तरह पूजा जाता है ; वह हमारे देश के हैं और हम उनका नाम भी नहीं जानते हैं, इससे बड़ी शर्म की बात क्या हो सकती है |
आज आवश्यकता है हमें अपने गौरवमय इतिहास को जानने की, जो भी प्राचीन ग्रन्थ हैं उनका अध्ययन करने की, जो भी ज्ञान हमारे हमारे ऋषि – मुनियों ने हमें प्रदान किया हुआ है उस पर अमल करने की |
इस पोस्ट को पड़ने के बाद कई ‘ अंग्रेजो के तलवे चाटने ‘ और ” भारत ने दिया ही क्या है ? ” कहने वालों के पेट में दर्द होना शुरू हो जायेगा .. इन जोकरों से अनुरोध है की पहले गूगल पर जाकर जानकारी प्राप्त कर लें फिर कमेंट करें |

Rani Durgavati was born October 5, 1524, at the fort of Kalanjar (Banda, U.P.). She was descended from the Chandel emperor Vidyadhar, a doer of great deeds: he was one of the few Indian kings to successfully repulse Mahmood Ghaznavi, who first invaded India in the closing years of the 12th Century. In the West, the Chadel Dynasty is best known for building Khajuraho, where 85 temples – of which 22 survive – celebrated, among other themes, the principle of Eros.
|From Keene’s Oriental Biography (1894) p.385:Durgavati’s father was the Chandel ruler of Mahoba. In 1531 he was defeated in battle by the Sultan of Gujarat, Bahadur Shah and force to convert to Islam. After this happened, Raja Silhaddi’s brother Lakshman Singh surrendered the fort Of Raisin to the Sultan.
Durgavati’s mother was a daughter of the famed Rajput king Maharana Sangha. Unable to find anyone to avenge her cause she consigned herself and 700 women to the flames. Her husband and brother-in-law, together with 100 of their blood relations, then made a suicidal attack on the Sultan’s troops, and died, accomplishing nothing except the saving of their honor.
|In 1542, Durgavati was married to Dalpatshah, the eldest son of the Gond king Sangramshah. This united the Chandel and Gond dynasties, and enabled the Chandelas to meet the invasion of Shershah Suri.
|Durgavati gave birth to a son, Vir Narayan, in 1545 A.D. Dalpatshah died in about 1550 A.D. As Vir Narayan was too young at that time, Durgavati took over the throne. She was helped by two dedicated ministers, Adhar Kayastha and Man Thakur. Her administration saw an enhancement of economic and cultural life for her subjects; by all accounts, she was an effective ruler. The Rani moved her capital to Chauragarh from its traditional location at Singaurgarh. Chauragarh was a fort of strategic importance situated in the Satpura hill range.The portrait of Rani Durgavati is done in the Mughul school, late 16th Century.http://www.chennaimuseum.org
जबलपुर। रानी दुर्गावती, एक ऐसा नाम, जिनकी गिनती भारतीय इतिहास की सर्वाधिक प्रसिद्ध रानियों में होती है। वह महोबा कालिंजर के चंदेल राजा कीर्तिराज की पुत्री थीं। भास्कर नॉलेज पैकेज के अंतर्गत आज हम आपको बुंदेलखंड की इसी महारानी की शहादत दिवस पर वीरता की कहानी बता रहे हैं।
रानी दुर्गावती का जन्म 1540 ई. के आस-पास हुआ था। खून का असर तो बचपन से ही रानी दुर्गावती में था। घोड़े का शौक, हथियार चलाने का शौक, तैराकी करने का शौक, बचपन से ही उनके अंदर था। उनकी प्रतिभा तो बचपन से ही दिखने लगी थी।
महादेव की आराधना करने वाली दुर्गावती को किसी से भी भय नहीं लगता था। वे प्रतिदिन अपनी सहेली रामचेरी के साथ महादेव की पूजा-अर्चना करती थीं। उस समय रानी दुर्गा महाराज दलपतिशाह की वीरता और पराक्रम से प्रभावित होकर उनसे विवाह करना चाहती थीं। लेकिन उनके पिता कुंवर वीरभद्र सिंह से करना चाहते थे।
पिता के विरोध करने पर रानी ने दलपतिशाह को एक पत्र लिखा। उसके बाद दलपतिशाह करीब १२ हजार सैनिकों के साथ दक्षिण में मोर्चा जमाकर बैठ गए। सूचना पाते ही दुर्गावती सहेली के साथ सुरंग के रास्ते महाराज दलपतिशाह के पास पहुंच गई। फिर विधि-विधान से दोनों ने विवाह किया। इस तरह रानी दुर्गावती गढ़ा की महारानी कहलाईं।
कुछ समय के बाद महारानी दुर्गावती के पिता कीर्तिसिंह ने भी इस विवाह को स्वीकार कर लिया। एक वर्ष बाद रानी को पुत्र की प्राप्ति हुई, जिसका नाम वीर नारायण रखा गया। लेकिन चार वर्ष बाद ही महाराज की मृत्यु हो गई। इसके बाद उन्हें काफी परेशानी का सामना करना पड़ा।
इनसब के बीच शेरशाह सूरी ने रानी दुर्गावती के मायके कालिंजर का घेराव कर लिया। भीषण युद्ध में महाराज कीर्ति सिंह वीरगति को प्राप्त हुए। रानी को लगातार दूसरा आघात पहुंचा। चूंकि उनका राज्य काफी समृद्ध था, इसलिए दूसरे शासकों की नजर शुरू से उसपर पड़ी थी।
एक दिन मौका देखकर मानिकपुर के फौजदार ने 1563 ई. में राज्य को तहस-नहस करने के लिए हमला बोल दिया। यह हमला मुगल बादशाह अकबर ने करवाया था। दूसरे दिन भीषण लड़ाई हुई। उनके एक साइड सहेली रामचेरी थी, तो पीछे पुत्र था।
उन्होंने मुगल सेना का डटकर सामना किया और एक-एक को मारते हुए आगे बढ़ती गईं। लेकिन इस बीच उनका पुत्र और उनकी सहेली वीरगति को प्राप्त हो गईं। अपना सबकुछ खो चुकी रानी से यह सहा नहीं गया। उन्हें चक्कर आ गया। तभी एक तीर उनकी आंखों में लगा तथा दूसरी उनकी गर्दन में। इस तरह रानी भी वीरगति को प्राप्त हुईं। गढ़ा से पांच कोस दूर आज भी रानी दुर्गावती की समाधि है।
maharani durgavati ”the untold story of the legendary rajput warrior”
Maharani Durgavati was a Chandel rajputani. She was born at the Kalinjar fort, Banda, Uttar Pradesh. Chandel rajputs were the builders of the beautiful city of Khajurao which had 85 magnificient temples of which 22 still survive.
She inherited the Gond Kingdom after her husband, Dalpat Shah, died in 1550 A.D. Her son, Bir Narayan was an infant and Rani Durgavati ruled the kingdom of Gond. Baj Bhadur after ascending the throne of Malwa in 1556 A.D., attacked the Gond kingdom but his army was routed. His defeat was so decisive that he never dared attack Rani Durgavati’s kingdom ever again.
Akbar decided to invade Rani’s kingdom and sent a cavalry of 50,000 with heavy artillery, under the command of Abdul Mazid Khan.
Rani Durgavati organized her defences at a valley near Narrai (Madhya Pradesh). Her forces were flanked by hills on one side and the rivers Narmada and Gaur on the other. When Muslim forces entered from both sides of the valley, Rani’s small army, which she was leading herself, fought with exemplary bravery and pushed back Mughals on both sides. Rani’s army emerged victorious.
During night time, her army came out of the valley and camped in the open areas. Rani Durgavati discussed further strategy with her generals and wanted to attack the Mughals in the night. But her generals dissuaded her against such an action. This delay allowed the Mughals to haul there heavy artillery near the battlefield.
Next morning (24th June, 1564) the battle started again.
The young Bir Narayan pushed back Mughals thrice but was injured fighting and taken away from the battlefield. The Rani, riding her elephant, Samran, led the attack but she was ultimately stuck by two arrows and she realized the end was near.
Her generals wanted her to retreat but she decided against it and instead used her “katar”(dagger) to enter Maha Samadhi (the abode of God). Rani Durgavati was an outstanding example of rajput bravery.

- Legend of Rani Durgavati
3 rd July is the martyrdom day of Rani Durgavati. HJS salutes this valiant and brave queen.
Rani Durgavati’s achievements further enhanced the glory of her ancestral tradition of courage and patronage of arts In 1542, she was married to Dalpat Shah, the eldest son of king Sangram Shah of Gond Dynasty. Chandel and Gond dynasties got closer as a consequence of this marriage and that was the reason Keerat Rai got the help of Gonds and his son-in-law Dalpat Shah at the time of muslim invasion of Sher Shah Suri in which Sher Shah died.
It is said that trade flourished during this period. Peole were prosperous. Like her husband’s predecessors she extended her territory and accomplished the political unification of Gondwana, also called Garha-Katanga, with courage, generosity and tact. Out of 23,000 villages in her kingdom 12,000 were directly managed by her government. Her large well equipped army is said to have consisted of 20,000 cavalry and 1,000 war elephants besides a good number of foot soldiers. Durgavati combined beauty and grace with courage and wisdom. She carried out many useful public works in different parts of her kingdom, winning the hearts of her people. She built a great reservoir close to Jabalpur, called Ranital. Following her initiative one of her attendants built Cherital and the Adhartal was built three miles from Jabalpur by her minister Adhar Kayastha. She is also reputed to have been a liberal patron of learning
After the death of Shershah, Sujat Khan captured the Malwa zone and was succeeded by his son Baz Bahadur in 1556 A.D. After ascending to the throne, he attacked Rani Durgavati but the attack was repulsed with heavy losses to his army. This defeat effectively silenced Baz Bahadur and the victory brought name and fame for Rani Durgavati.
In the year 1562 Akbar vanquished the Malwa ruler Baj Bahadur and annexed the Malwa with Mughal dominion. Consequently, the state boundary of Rani touched the Mughal kingdom.
Rani’s contemporary Mughal Subedar was Abdul Mazid Khan, an ambitious man who vanquished Ramchandra, the ruler of Rewa. Prosperity of Rani Durgavati’s state lured him and he invaded Rani’s state after taking permission from Mughal emperor. This plan of Mughal invasion was the result of expansionism and imperialism of Akbar.
To fight a defensive battle, she went to Narrai situated between a hilly range on one side and two rivers Gaur and Narmada on the other side. It was an unequal battle with trained soldiers and modern weapons in multitude on one side and a few untrained soldiers with old weapons on the other side. Her Faujdar Arjun Daswas killed in the battle and Rani decided to lead the defence herself. As the enemy entered the valley, soldiers of Rani attacked them. Both sides lost some men but Rani was victorious in this battle. She chased the Mughal army and came out of the valley.
In the course of battle Rani also got injured near her ear with an arrow. Another arrow pierced her neck and she lost her consciousness. On regaining consciousness she perceived that defeat was imminent. Her Mahout advised her to leave the battlefield but she refused and took out her dagger and killed herself. Her martyrdom day (24th June 1564) is even today commemorated as “Balidan Diwas”.
She, like her ancestral dynasty, built so many lakes in her state and did a lot for the welfare of her people. She respected the scholars and extended her patronage to them. She welcomed the Vitthalnath of Vallabh community and took Diksha from him. She was secular and appointed many eminent Muslims on important posts.
The place where she sacrificed herself has always been a source of inspiration for freedom fighters.
In the year 1983, the Government of Madhya Pradesh renamed the University of Jabalpur as Rani Durgavati Vishwavidyalaya in her memory.
Government of India paid its tribute to the valiant Rani by issuing a postal-stamp commemorating her martyrdom, on 24th June 1988

मिरजमें सबसे अधिक दंगे होते हैं । वहां ३५० गणेश मण्डल हैं; परन्तु उनमें एकजुटता नहीं है; इसलिए वहां दंगे होते हैं । हिन्दुआेंमें एक-दूसरेके प्रति बैरभावना समाप्त करनेके लिए कोई हिन्दू समन्वय समिति स्थापित करनी चाहिए । सितम्बर २००० में गणेशोत्सवमें अफजलखानवधका चित्र लगाया था; इसलिए दंगे हुए । उस चित्रमें क्या गलत था; मात्र उससे धर्मांधोंकी भावनाएं आहत होती हैं । अमरनाथ यात्राके विषयमें कट्टरपन्थियोंद्वारा प्रश्न उपस्थित करनेके उपरान्त बाळासाहेब ठाकरेने पत्रकार परिषद लेकर कहा था, अमरनाथ यात्रा नहीं, तो देशभरमें हज यात्रा भी बन्द कर दूंगा । आज हमें जैसेको तैसा ऐसी भूमिका लेना आवश्यक हो गया है ।
