RANI JINDAN HISTORY IN PUNJABI PDF

In she became Regent of Punjab for Duleep Singh. She was renowned for her great beauty and personal charm along with her 'characteristic strength of a man' qualities which the British came to dislike. It was reported that Maharaja Ranjit Singh was not interested in marrying a young bride, reportedly she would be his 17th wife. The tender years of Duleep Singh, is the reason why the Maharani did not become 'sati' on the funeral pyre of her husband along with some of the other wives. In order to get rid of Manna Singh's constant requests, the Maharaja sent 'his arrow and sword' to her village to which Jind Kaur was symbolically married in AD. This custom was born from the Sikh religion's rejection[citation needed] of the ancient ritual of 'Sati' or self-immolation of the widow on her husband's funeral pyre, a custom which was still prevalent within most of the families of the nobility and royalty of the Sikh Kingdoms.

But the credit for the film goes to Bicky Singh, an IIT Delhi graduate, who runs an IT company in southern California, and is known for his collection of over turbans. Speaking to Guardian, Michael Singh said he thought the tragic story of Jindan also carried a strong message of self-esteem for women. The film, which was screened outside the United States at the Bradford Literature Festival this year, is an interplay of history and the present-day reality through interviews.

Prof Indu Banga, a historian, attributes the renewed interest in Jindan to the present phase in Punjab history when historians no longer take the British account of the maharani at face value.

But now new evidence has emerged to the contrary.
