6 June: Maharana Pratap Jayanti observed

Maharana Pratap Jayanti is observed every year on 6 June to celebrate birth anniversary of brave Rajput warrior.

The year 2019 marks 479th birth anniversary of great warrior.

Maharana Pratap

He was the 13th Rajput king of Mewar, a province in modern-day Rajasthan. Then Mewar province also included some parts of now Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh

He was the eldest son of Maharana Udai Singh and Maharani Jaiwanta Bai. He became ruler of Mewar in 1572, after death of Udai Singh.

He is a symbol of Rajput valour, gallantry and diligence. He is considered to be one of the strongest Rajput warriors who fought against the Mughals supremacy to free his homeland from their control.

The famous Battle of Haldighati was fought between Maharana Pratap and Akbar’s forces led by Man Singh I of Amer on 18 June 1576.

Although the battle was won by Mughals but neither Maharana or any of his close family members were captured by the Mughal thus rendering their victory fruitless.
