Shahana Dasgupta in her book, Rani Lakshmibai the Indian heroine describes Rani Lakshmibai as a freedom fighter for Jhansi against the British rule.

Lakshmibai, The Rani of Jhansi was the queen of the Maratha-ruled princely state of Jhansi in India. She was one of the leading personality of the Indian rebellion of 1857, and a symbol of resistance to British rule in India. The name of Rani Lakshmibai in Indian History is synonymous with heroism and courage.
