In the recent past there a kind of sensational news, which hit the media across the Indian nation; that the famous Jhansi Lakshmi Bai, who was elevated to the stature of a great freedom fighter against the British colonial regime in the 1857 First War of Indian Independence was a falsified. This falsification asserted that Jhansi Laksmi Bai failed to fight against the British soldiers heroically, but, on her behalf her associated female solider fought the British forces in guise of her appearance, whose name was traced as ‘Jalkari Bai’.

There was a jubilant response to this from the dimension from the subaltern sections, especially by the Bahujan Students’ Front (BSF) at University of Hyderabad, as it was claimed that the Jalkari Bai hailed from the lower sections of the Indian society, whose identity was suppressed by the Brahminic hegemonic society, as per their asserted conception. This assertive can be observed from the below poster.
