mam tq uu ap bhyt acha padhate ho
Mam I follow all your courses...They are excellent, I really like the way you teach...In this lesson, you said Rani Lakahmibai was fighting for her selfish motive, this word 'selfish' has a negative connotation.I think mam, selfish is not a proper word.we can say she was having her own reasons because she went through a lot because of the unjust British policies.

Yes but i used selfish in the context that they were not united. It was not considered a first war of independence.
