झांसी की रानी लक्ष्मीबाई को इतिहास और आम जनता की जानकारी के लिए वो स्थान नहीं मिला, जो मिलना चाहिए था।
झांसी के अंतिम संघर्ष में महारानी की पीठ पर बंधा उनका बेटा दामोदर राव (असली नाम आनंद राव) सबको याद है. रानी की चिता जल जाने के बाद उस बेटे का क्या हुआ?
वो कोई कहानी का किरदार भर नहीं था, 1857 के विद्रोह की सबसे महत्वपूर्ण कहानी को जीने वाला राजकुमार था जिसने उसी गुलाम भारत में जिंदगी काटी, जहां उसे भुला कर उसकी मां के नाम की कसमें खाई जा रही थी.

अंग्रेजों ने दामोदर राव को कभी झांसी का वारिस नहीं माना था,
सो उसे सरकारी दस्तावेजों में कोई जगह नहीं मिली थी. ज्यादातर हिंदुस्तानियों ने सुभद्रा कुमारी चौहान के कुछ सही, कुछ गलत आलंकारिक वर्णन को ही इतिहास मानकर इतिश्री कर ली.

First pit-stop on my #ExploreUP journey, Bhitargaon in #Kanpurdehat. Amidst squalor, in a village seemingly over-run by a combo of buffaloes & pigs, stands what may be north India's oldest existing temple. This brick temple dedicated to Vishnu dates to Gupta period, 6th century.
#ExploreUP: Having read abt a Lodi-era tomb at #Kalpi, #Jalaun dist, I expected it to be in line with the octagonal Lodi-Sur era tombs elsewhere in India. It turned out to be quite different. Locals call it the Chaurasi (84) gumbad.
#ExploreUP: The tomb @ #Kalpi, was described as that of a 'Lodi Badshah'. Aware that of the three Lodi rulers, two buried in Delhi & third in #Panipat, was puzzled abt the Kalpi person. Turns out to be a brother of Ibrahim named Jalaluddin who propped himself as ruler for a while
