I am fond of movies and I do watch lot of movies… some are good some are bad, there are movies which are waste of time and some are waste of money but there are bunch of movies which actually teach you life lessons.
The Queen of Jhansi is one of them, it was a complete leadership guide, entire movie gives you lesson of how a leader should be, how you should take decisions and how you should support your people.
Remember those history classes long ago in school? About “Quit India Movement”, Rani Laximibai was always my favorite topic, it used to make me think how brave and courageous she must be, and this movie is perfect example of turning those words into visuals
There are many leadership lessons to learn and take away for corporate life from Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, from my point of view below are 5 leadership and corporate life take away.
Believe In Yourself
It doesn’t matter where are you from, what have you learned or who thought you the only thing matters is your willingness and courage to accomplish your goal, Rani Laxmibai was educated at home. She mastered the art of shooting and riding a horse without going to a proper school of martial arts. Interesting, isn’t it? But she showed courage and her devotion towards nation and pride and passion about Jhansi, she only had one goal in her mind and she kept fighting for that goal till her last breath,
It is not important that you win or lose, but how much efforts you take to be there, she lost in her battle but we still remember her, because she started freedom fight.
Before entering into a battle with the British rulers, she wrote letters to the British officials that pointed out the violation of the Treatise of Government of India. She tried to convince them without getting into a battle to avoid bloodshed. In a movie she persistently focused on one word and that is “we will fight when there is right time” so you always need to focus on correct opportunity and put your step forward when all circumstances are on your side.
Support Your People
She went out and connected with her people, so that she understand what they need, you are a Leader if your people think you are a Leader, when East India Company asked her to leave Jhansi fort, she proudly said, I am not the Queen of fort but the Queen of people, and where ever I will go, if my people are with me then I will be the Queen.
To be successful leader you should support and understand your people, you should know there needs and try to fulfil them, if you support your people and help them to grow, they will support you and recognize you as a true leader
Trust Your People
She took brave step to fight with an army triple of her own army strength, but she was well aware about her resources, people and their skills. She took a bold decision to train and establish women battalion, so if you trust your people and train them well and improve their skills, they can be best resources.
Everyone was trying to convince her that fighting with 60,000 troops is impossible with having just 20000 troops in your battalion, but she had very simple solution that you are not fighting with 60,000. But one person is fighting with 3 people and 1 person just need to kill 3 people to win the battle.
What an amazing thought, so don’t look at your end goal, have that goal in mind but just take another step, it can make you win your battle.
Let me know, what you learned from this movie, what are your favorite dialogues? Which points you will implement in your life to win the battle of your life? What you will do to be inspired and happy always to achieve your life goal and to get freedom from hustle of life.
