Manu was always different. Unlike other girls of her time, she went to school, learnt to ride and shoot. Later, as Rani Lakshmibai, she bravely told the British, “I will not give up Jhansi!” And it is the Rani of Jhansi fighting on horseback that is still the most inspiring image of India’s First War of Independence in 1857.
