Tipu Sultan Was The Great King Of India Like A Tiger And Sri Rangapatna Is Famous For His Kingdom - Poem by Mazid S Kazi , INDIA

Tipu sultan was the great king of India like a tiger and
Sri Rangapatna is famous for his kingdom.
Hyder Ali fought against the british army and created terrors in the hearts of the English men.
He wanted that English people must leave India and his country men should be in freedom.
Hyder Ali died at the age of sixty in 1782 at Narasingarayanapet near Chittoor due to a disease.

Hyder Ali and Fathima had visited to the great saint Tipu Masthan and they prayed for a son.
A son was born in 1750 at Devanahalli and named him Tipu after the name of the great saint.
From the age of fifteen Tipu went with his father in the battle fields to be trained in person.
When Tipu was fighting with the british, there came a sudden news of his father's death.

He rushed to Sri Rangapatna here the people had gathered to see their favourite king lay dead.
With great honour Hyder Ali was buried at Lal-Bagh in mausoleum (Gumbuz) built by Tipu sultan,
Unanimously Tipu was elected to the throne of his father and assumed the title of Nawab as head.
His army saluted him with 121 guns and French 21 in the honour of his greatness.

He was left by his father an army of about 88,000 men at that time the best fighting force of India.
Tipu succeeded to a large kingdom bounded to north and south, east and west surrounded.
The britishers failed in their attemptes in defeating Tipu Sultan and they lost hope of every idea.
He was not aware of the treachery trick that played by Mir Sadiq, Poornaiya and ministers.

British army entered into the Fort with the help of Mir Sadiq and Poornaiya and attacked the palace.
Raja Khan his personal attendant advised to Tipu to surrender to the british but he frankly rejected.
Tipu Sultan fought with the british army till the last breath to defeat the british there.
He had aimed to root out the british rule from India and he had desired to see Indian rule.

Hindus and Muslims, Christians and Sikhs all wept to see Tipu passed away from the world.
He was trying to unite all the rulers of the south for national liberation for undivided.
So, Tipu's letter to Nizam and Marathas clearly shows his national interest and patriotism he liked.
He was the great administrator and he was the most superior to any other rulers of the south.

A magnificent Gumbuz was built by Tipu Sultan in the year 1784 for his beloved parents.
Hyder Ali loved 'Lal-Bagh' so, Tipu selected this place and buried to his father and mother there.
Tipu was shot dead by the british in 1799 and his body was carried and buried beside his parents tombs.
Hyder Ali lies in the middle and his wife Fathima to the east and his son Tipu lies to the west.

Tipu said, 'I can not live in peace until the britishers were sent out of the country'.
Tipu was the first and the last king who challenged to the british in wars and died while fighting.
When Nizam had sent his troops for the british, 'he said to Nizam to get back his troops possibly'.
He never sided the britishers and hated them because he did not like them to rule in India.

Hyder's last advice to Tipu, 'to make peace with the british as they are too much powerful'.
Tipu asked to his people, 'they want peace or war with the british', they said in one voice 'war'.
His army strongly fought against the british in the battle field as his army was brave and faithful.
He heard his father's advice and as the son of India he had to face
the challenge of English army.

Tipu used to give grants for the constructions of temples, mosques, churches and Gurdwaras.
He treated all the religions an equal and he allowed to the Hindus complete freedom of worship.
There was an equal job-opportunity for Hindus and Muslims in all the Government-departments.
During his seventeen years of rule there were no incidents of Hindu-Muslim conflict.

History tells to the world that Tipu killed to a tiger and hence he was called the tiger of Mysore.
The britishers were afraid of Tipu to know his daring nature as he was more courageous.
What could have been happened? if Tipu's men could have not become
the traitors here.
The british army killed to Tipu cowardly not to follow the rules of war, alas! a king was assassinated.
