DMPQ:Given an account on the contribution of Rani Gaidinliu in Indian Freedom struggle.

This fiery female leader in Indian freedom struggle gets often compared with Rani Laxmibai for her courageous acts during the days of freedom fighting.  At a tender age of 16, she began a movement against the British imperialism demanding end of colonial rule and resurgence of Zeliangrong religion and Naga self-rule. The British administration captured her and she was sentenced to life imprisonment. The first Indian prime-minister and freedom fighter, Jawaharlal Nehru was amazed at her courage and will-power and gave her the title “Rani”. After independence, she was released from jail and continued her works for the poor and down-trodden in the same spirit and determination. She was awarded Padma Bhushan for her tireless efforts for the cause of Manipur people in North-east.
