Freedom Fighter - Rani Lakshmibai

The other week at school, the kids were supposed to come to school dressed like a Freedom Fighter.  We decided to dress Aashini up as the super cool Rani Lakshmi Bai!   Doesn't she look tough?! :)
This is a picture of the original Rani Lakshmi Bai.  She was a queen and one of the leading figures of the Indian Rebellion of 1857.  She is a symbol of resistance to the rule of the British East India Company.  
Aashini LOVED getting to dress up like her and speak about her at school.  
 So tough!! 
 Whenever Rani Lakshmibai is pictured, she always has on men's clothes and has her adopted son tied to her back.  So, Aashini just had to have a baby on her back! :)
 The day that Aashini did this, Diya had her speaking competition, so we saw her at school when she was going to the computer lab :) 
 This picture makes me laugh :)
 After school Aashini loved being able to run around and chase the boys with her sword! haha!!
 Aashini and her buddy Tanvi were both dressed up as Rani Lakshmibai :)  They had fun together :)
 Chasing the boys :)
 Aashini and Tanvi - the two Ranis :) 
 Leaving school... Aashini had a super fun day! :)
