Ballu Champawat Rathore of Harsolaw

Ballu Champawat Rathore (A.D. 1591-1644), of Harsolaw in Marwar was a dauntless warrior of the period. He had a glorious line of ancestry. He was a man of sterling qualities, and of unimpeachable character. In him there was a confluence of the streams of valor and self-respect; both flowed together plenteously in him. He had fought 34 battles in his career. But these battles alone were not enough to put him among the worthies of history. What gave him an abiding place in history was his miraculous valor, demonstrated by him at the Agra Fort in July, 1644.

On 25th July, 1644, an exciting event had occurred in the imperial court at Agra Fort. Mir Bakshi Salabat Khan had uttered a provocative remark to Amar Singh Rathore, which stirred up his feelings to a fever pitch; and he spontaneously thrust his dagger in the chest of Salabat Khan, the latter died on the spot. To take vengeance on Amar Singh, the Emperor's security officers, guards and mace bearers, made a ruthless assault upon him, and a gruesome fight had started. Amar Singh offered a tough resistance, but he was soon overpowered by the Emperor's men, and finally was slain. To recover the dead body of Amar Singh, laid in the Emperor's custody, was a mighty challenge before Ballu Champawat. At that crucial moment, Ballu had displayed rare qualities of fidelity, honor and bravery which made him a figure of high regard. Nothing daunted Ballu, he entered into the Agra Fort, hurriedly picked up the corpse, or the severed head, and put it on horseback; pressed his thighs in sudden quick pull, and gave a twitch to the horse. The horse in quickness, with the speed of a bullet, dashed, and leapt over the ramparts; it fell by the sight of the moat, where it breathed its last. Ballu had carried out his plan successfully; brought the corpse or the severed head of Amar Singh Rathore from the jaws of death; and handed over the same to his 'ranies' (wives) who were waiting for it in order to become 'Sati'. Ballu's valorous feat was unparalleled in the historical records of the world. This incident had happened on 26th July, 1644.

To avenge his (Rao Amar Singh Rathore) death, his retainers, headed by Ballu Champawat..., put on their saffron garments, and a fresh carnage ensued within the 'Lal Quila' (Red Fort of Agra)... The pillars of Agra bear testimony to their deeds, nor shall they ever be obliterated from the records of time: they made their obeisance to Amar in the mansions of the sun.
~ James Tod : Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan

But this was not the end of Ballu's story. The same day the Emperor's forces were in chase of Ballu. A grim battle had occurred outside the Agra Fort between Ballu's men and Emperor Shah Jahan's forces, where the valiant Rathore cut the troops of the enemy and threw each corpse a headless torso. Ballu fought the battle in his euphoric spree even when beheaded. The battle-great Ballu thus made history – different and distinct from other warriors known in history.

By the sheer dint of his miraculous valor shown by Ballu Champawat at the Agra Fort, he unquestionably earned an immortal place and an undying fame in the annals of history. We are proud to be a part of such a royal and brave lineage coming from one of the greatest warrior in Rajput history.
