Lightning isn't followed by Thunder. They both are one entity. The light is perceived before the sound because light travels faster than sound.

Dear Pragyan, As Unacademy Fan aptly pointed, it is the speed of light that enables us to observe "light (Flash/Lightning)" first followed by Thunder (bolt/sound). Say those clouds collided with each other making it possible to exchange charge from one to another happened at 10KM (1.0 * 10^4 meters) height, the light then formed can reach the earth in 33.3 micro seconds (3.33 * 10^-5 seconds) while the sound then formed can reach the earth in 30.21 seconds (nearly half a minute later its formation at 331m/s speed). Thus you can find the lightning almost instantaneously while the bolt with significant delay. Moreover, next time we can roughly estimate at which height these clouds collided with the help of gap between lightning and thunder. By the way, the speed I mentioned (331m/s) is speed of sound in dry air which can be lesser than the actual speed of thunder (since rainy air is denser than dry air ~ but not a homogenous mixture). Thank you for the question. :) Hope this helps.
The ‘Paika Bidroha’ (Paika rebellion) of 1817 will find a place in the history books as ‘the First War of Independence’ from the next academic session, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Monday. Mr. Javadekar had first made the announcement on Sunday here at a function to mark the bicentenary of the Paika rebellion, and added that the Centre has allocated Rs. 200 crore for commemorating it across the country. “Paika Bidroha will find a place as the First War of Independence against the British Rule in the history books. The students should learn factual history of 1817,” he said at a press conference. Paikas were peasant militia under the Gajapati rulers of Odisha who rendered military service to the king during times of war. They rebelled against the British rule under the leadership of Bakshi Jagabandhu Bidyadhara as early as 1817. Earlier, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had, in a letter to the Centre, urged that it should recognise ‘Paika Bidroha’ as the First War of Independence against the British rule as it took place four decades before the 1857 Sepoy Mutiny, which has so far been regarded as the First War of Indian Independence.v

The Paik Rebellion, also called the Paika Bidroha, was an armed rebellion against the British East India Company's rule in Odisha in 1817. The Paikas rose in rebellion under their leader Bakshi Jagabandhu and, projecting Jagannath as the symbol of Odia unity, the rebellion quickly spread across most of Odisha before being ruthlessly put down by the company's forces.
