Balyan , Chhakhata Revolt
There was revolt from Sammal Caste group in village Balyan, Chhabees Dumaula Patti of Chhakhata region. In the leadership of Peera Sammal ‘Paik’ (brave man), Sammal Jamindar declared them free from Trimall Chandra rule. Peera Sammal started ruling from a big stone as court. The army of Trimall Chandra killed all rebellions and their families. Only one pregnant woman was spared. Till the early twentieth century, there was no farming on that ground where Sammal people were killed by Trimall Chandra army. The big stone was there and is the witness of killing of Sammal people by army of Trimall Chandra.
History aspects of Bajbahadur Chandra
Trimall Chandra did not have any child. Supporters of Trimall Chandra were Mara groups. The immediate heir of Trimall Chandra was his brother Narayan Chandra. However, supporters of Narayan Chandra were Fadtyal group and Mara group never allowed that Narayan Chandra become King. Mara group was always in search of a Rautela heir for Trimall Chandra. They informed Trimall Chandra that when Karki, Gusain and Bhatt of Sor ousted eyes of Neel Gusain his maid hid orphan son of Neel Gusain and handed over to a Tiwari widow in a village. The Tiwari widow nurtured the orphan. The name of that child was named as ‘Baja’.
There are other couples of folklore about Baja.
In 1635, Trimall Chandra declared ‘Baja’ as his heir or prince. The age of ‘Baja’ would be 13-14 in 1635.
Trimall Chandra used to offer various court-works to ‘Baja’. Now, ‘Baja’ was Baj Chandra or Baj Bahadur Chandra.
There is a four feet idol of Trimall Chandra in Jageshwar temple. There is Shloka carved on the back of idol and year is mention -1630.
