Rani Lakshmibai, the heroic queen who fought fiercely against the British in the first freedom struggle of 1857, was not only the queen of Jhansi and her enemies, but she also had a young son. Who was tied on the back of the queen in the battle. Whose name was Damodar Rao. Which was adopted by Maharaja Gangadhar Rao of Jhansi and Laxmibai Navalkar (full name of Rani of Jhansi). But do you know what happened to Damodar after Rani’s death? The British forced them to wander from rate to rate.

Damodar Rao was born on 15 November 1849 in a branch of the royal family. At the age of three, Maharaj adopted her. Queen Lakshmibai sent a message to Lord Dalhousie in Calcutta that Damodar Rao should be considered the heir of the royal family. But this did not happen. Dalhousie ordered that Jhansi be merged with the British Raj.

The British had never considered Damodar Rao as the heir to Jhansi, so he did not find any place in government documents. Damodar Rao’s only description appeared in YN Kelkar’s Marathi book ‘Itihasachaya Sahli’, published in 1959. After the death of Maharani, Damodar Rao lived a very difficult life in a way. The people of India were not only the British responsible for their plight.
