As the British Empire tightened its hold over India through strength and strategy, there were individuals who stood up to oppose the growing foreign power. This Amar Chitra Katha collection remembers Rani Lakshmibai who refused to cede Jhansi to the British and took them head on. Tipu Sultan, who stood like a rock and repelled the British till he was betrayed by his own general. Rani Chenamma of Kittur, who answered the British demand for allegiance by fighting them to the end. Velu Thampi, the Diwan of Travancore, who would brook no interference from the East India Company in the affairs of his state and Kunwar Singh, who at the grand old age of 75 chose to fight the British.
