Later, she was married to Raje Gangadharbaba of Jhansi ‘sansthan (small State)’ and her name was changed to Lakshmibai.

Sri Mahalakshmi was the family Deity of Jhansi’s rulers’ family. In front of South gate of Jhansi, there is a temple of Sri Mahalakshmi in a big lake.

The king of  Jhansi had made all arrangements of performing ‘puja’ at this temple and lighting of lamp all the time.

There are many temples in the town and all of them were managed by the ‘Sansthan’.

After her husband’s death, Rani wanted to go to Sri Kshetra Prayag for shaving her head; but permission of the British was required for the same which was being delayed.

Lakhsmibai, therefore, observed a rule that till she could shave off her head, she would smear ‘Bhasma’ after bath and make offering of Rs.3/- to 3 Brahmins every day. Accordingly, Rani used to get up early and finish her bath etc. and wearing a white sari, she used to perform ‘puja’ of ‘Parthiv Linga (linga made of soil)’ every day after ‘Tulsi-puja’.

Lakshmibai liked to exercise right from her childhood and to go for horse-ride regularly.

Then she used to go for horse-ride followed with a ride on elephant. This was her routine.

Rani Lakshmibai was a good judge of horses. She was known for her knowledge of horses.

Once a horse-seller went to King Babasaheb Apate of Sri Kshetra Ujjain with two good horses; but he could not judge them. Then the seller went to Shrimant Jayajiraje Shinde of Gwalior; but he too was unable to make out the quality of horses.

Finally, he came to Jhansi. Rani Lakshmibai had a ride on one horse and told the seller that the horse was of good-bred and offered Rs. 1200/- to him.

Then she rode the other horse and offered him only Rs. 50/- for the same; telling that the horse had hurt its chest.

The seller accepted the facts. Those, who had examined the horses earlier, had said that both the horses were of equal strength.

Once, Jhansi was badly hit with severe winter. About 1000-1200 beggars gathered near the South Gate of the city. When Rani went for ‘darshan’ of Sri Mahalakshmi, she saw the crowd and asked her minister about them.

He informed Rani that poor people were asking for some coverlets for protection from cold. Rani issued an order that by fourth day, all poor people from the town should be distributed a cap, coat and blanket and the order was executed.

In Jhansi State, there was a small town named Balavsagar. The local citizens were harassed due to thieves.

Rani went to this place and stayed for 15 days taking care of the problem. Many offenders were hanged and some were imprisoned.

The first missile was fired at the British army by Rani. For 11 days, she gave an apt reply to the British; but betrayals by own people, made it easy for the British to enter Jhansi.

Few ‘Sardars’ advised Rani to go back to the fort with few soldiers. Rani realised that it was difficult to fight as the number of British soldiers was high.
