A lion’s life for a day is preferable to hundred years of a jackal.”
Tipu Sultan was a brave and well trained in military skills since his child hood, he assisted his father in many battles. He was an intelligent, intellectual and enlightened ruler. He introduced new warfare technologies and new ways of agricultural production.
Tipu Sultan was certainly an observant Muslim and would spend time every day reading the Quran-e-Pak and was particular with all the ritual and obligations expected of a Muslim. He was always sober and reserved.
He died martyred while fighting in May 1799 in the gateway of Seringapatam. He was given proper burial ceremony by the company officials.
His Grand rule although blotched with continuous battles is still a symbol of glory, dignity and prestige.
