Movement Indian Rebellion of 1857

Rao Tula Ram (c. 9 December 1825 – 1863) was one of the key leaders of the Indian rebellion of 1857, in Haryana, where he is considered a state hero.[1] He is credited with temporarily driving all of the British rule from the region that today is southwest Haryana during the Rebellion, and also helping rebel forces fighting in the historic city of Delhi with men, money and material. Noted as a good administrator and military commander, after the 1857 uprising ended, he left India, met rulers of Iran and Afghanistan and also established contacts with the Tsar of Russia, to seek their help to fight a war to free India from the British. His plans were cut short by his death from dysentery in Kabul on September 23, 1863, at the age of 38.[2]

Early life[edit]

Rao Tula Ram was born on 9 December 1825.[3] His father was Rao Puran Singh,[4] his grandfather Rao Tej Singh[4] and his mother's name was Gyan Kanwar, daughter of Rao Zahari Singh, a local jagirdar.[citation needed]

Rao Tula Ram was one of the great leaders of the Indian Uprising of 1857 against the colonial British forces. His story is one of rebellion and guerrilla warfare against the stronger and better-equipped imperialist forces of the British Army.

The battle of Narnaul was undoubtedly one of the most decisive battles of the Uprising of 1857. The English felt jubilant over their success in this confrontation, for it resulted in the marked the Close of the crucial period of the struggle in the Haryana region and northern Rajasthan.

Rao Tula Ram's Istemraree estates were confiscated by the British in 1859, though proprietary rights of his two wives were retained. In 1877, his title was restored to his son Rao Yudhister Singh, who was made head of the Ahirwal.[5]

Pran Sukh Yadav in Hindi प्राण सुख यादव (1802-1888) was an extraordinary military commander of his time. He was a close friend of Hari Singh Nalwa and famous Punjab ruler Maharaja Ranjit Singh.In his early career he trained Sikh Khalsa army. After the death of Maharaja Ranjit Singh he fought in both the First and Second Anglo-Sikh Wars, due to his extreme hatred towards Britishers after the defeat of Sikhs he started giving military training to the farmers of Narnaul and Mahendragarh region. Later during the First Rebellion of India in 1857 he fought along with Rao Tula Ram of Rewari against Britishers at Nasibpur. In his last years he settled at Village Nihalpura, now in Alwar District of Rajasthan, along with the kins of dead soldiers who died fighting with the Britishers at Nasibpur and joined Arya Samaj after meeting Swami Dayananda Saraswati.[6]
