Mughals defeated, Guwahati snatched back, know who was Lachit Borphukan, whose 125 feet statue was unveiled by PM

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a jungle safari in Kaziranga National Park on Saturday morning. PM Modi reached Arunachal Pradesh after the safari and here he inaugurated the Sela Tunnel. From here PM Modi reached Assam and inaugurated the 'Statue of Bravery', a 125-foot tall statue of Ahom commander Lachit Borphukan in Jorhat.

Lachit Borphukan fought with the Mughals several times and defeated them. Lachit Borphukan is called Shivaji of North East. Lachit Borphukan freed Guwahati from the Mughals after a war with them. The Mughals fought the Battle of Saraighat against the Ahom Kingdom to regain Guwahati. In the battle of Ahom, the Mughal army used more than 1000 cannons and many other big weapons of that time but they lost along with Lachit Borphukan.

Lachit Barphukan used to be the commander of the Assamese Ahom Kingdom. He led the Assamese army in the battle of Saraighat fought in 1671. After a long struggle in the army, he defeated the Mughals but a year after this victory, he died of illness. The Best Cadet Gold Medal is also given in the name of Lachit Borphukan in the National Defense Academy (NDA). This honor is also called Lachit Medal.

Lachit Seng was the fourth son of Kaluk Mo-Sai (a Tai-Ahom priest). He was born in Seng-Long Mong Charaido to a Tai Ahom family. His religion was Furelung Ahom. His name was Lachit and he received the title of Barphukan. In fact, in 1665, Lachit was made the army chief of the Ahom army. This post was called Barphukan. That's why he became famous by the name of Lachit Barphukan.

Lachit Borphukan was given the post of flag bearer (Soladhar Barua) of the Ahom Swargadev. This post was considered the most important post for a diplomat or politician. King Chakradhwaj made Lachit the leader of his army against the Mughals. The king gifted a sword with a gold handle to Lachit.

Except for a few books, there is no specific mention of this great warrior Lachit Borphukan in Indian history. The National Defense Academy installed a statue of Lachit and started a medal in his name. Assam also celebrates Lachit Diwas in his memory every year in the month of November. Now the BJP government has tried to remind the future generations of this forgotten history by unveiling his huge statue.
