2003 – MAHARANA PRATAP COMMEMORATION:-
Maharana Pratap (May 9, 1540 – January 29, 1597) was a Hindu ruler of Mewar, a state in
north-western India. In 1568, during the reign of Udai Singh II, Chittor was conquered by the
Mughal emperor Akbar. Maharana Pratap never accepted Akbar as ruler of India, and fought
against Akbar all his life to free Chittor fort, his ancestral home, from Mughal occupation. On
June 21, 1576 he fought with the army of Akbar at Haldighati, Seeing that the battle was lost,
Pratap fled, and escaped to the hills. His one attempt at open confrontation having thus failed,
Pratap resumed the tactics of guerilla warfare. He died on January 29, 1597. Maharana Pratap
