Who was Kunwar Singh?

Kunwar Singh was one of the leading leaders of the first freedom struggle of 1857. Kunwar Singh was a zamindar of a place called Jagdishpur in Bihar by whom British policies had brought the situation to bankruptcy. Hence, they were opposed to British rule. Kunwar Singh himself did not formulate any plan, but as soon as the squad of rebel soldiers reached Ara from Dimapur, Kunwar Singh joined them, and even at the age of seventy, he provided efficient leadership to the soldiers. Kuwar Singh continued to struggle with the British for almost 1 year. Despite his ripe age, he appeared quite agile and did not let the British know where he was until the end. He was martyred on 9 May 1858, but in the Indian history, he attained immortality forever.
