Know about Kittur.RANI CHANNAMMA- WARRIOR QUEEN OF KITTUR Just about 40 Kms south-east of Belgaum in Karnataka stands the fort of Kittur. In 1824 this fort witnessed a ferocious battle when the gallant Rani Channamma of Kittur took her sword to challenge of British. History tell us that Rani Channamma was one of the two wives of Mallasarja Desai of Kittur. The small kingdom was founded in 1585. In 1816 Mallasarja passed away and was succeeded by his son Shivalinga Rudrasarja. The latter however failed to produce a lawful heir to the throne of Kittur. The British saw their opportunity and began drawing a plan for taking possession of the territory. The man behind this design was J. Thackeray, collector of Dharwar. Shivalinga Rudrasarja who had been ill for a long time died on September 11, 1824. Although the late king adopted a male child as his legal heir, the British refused to recognize the adoption. Rani Channamma received collector Thackeray’s letter to that effect. Soon Thackeray received Rani Channamma’s reply in which she stated that the adoption of a child was their business of Kittur would remain independent as long as she was alive. Thackeray was wild with anger. He marched on Kittur with an army. The Rani and her loyal men fell on the enemy and gave them a tough fight. The British were defeated Thackeray lost his life in the battle. To take revenge for their defeat and Thackeray’s death a very big army under the command of Alexander Campbell was ordered to march on Kittur. Rani Channamma had an army of only 7,000 men, but she decided to give fight to 25,000 British soldiers. For two days the brave Queen fought like a wounded tigress. In the battle a thousand brave men of Kittur lay dead. Channamma too wanted to die fighting, but her officers pleaded with her to escape. Rani Channamma attempted to flee through the North-east gate of the fort, Unluckily she was then taken to the fort at Bailhongal and thrown in to a cell. The sorrowing Queen passed away on Feb 2, 1829. A simple Samadhi and a ruined fort is all that remains at the fort of Bailhongal and Channamma Kittur to remind us of this brave Queen.
