ग्वाल्हेरच्या गादीवरून पळवून लाविले; आणि शिंदे सरकार व त्यांचे दोस्त ब्रिटिश सरकार ह्यांच्या विरुद्ध नवीन राज्य संस्थापित केले. ह्या बंडवाल्यांच्या कारकीर्दीमध्ये बारा महिनेपर्यंत कंपनी सरकारचे जुने व अनुभवी कामगार, शिंदे घराण्यांतील एका विविक्षित माणसाकडे राजद्रोहाचा प्रवेश होईल की काय, अशी शंका बाळगून, त्याकडे एकसारखें लक्ष्य लावून बसले होते. हे माणूस ह्मणजे वयानें वृद्ध असलेल्या

Tumults continued: for the princess was considered the more skilful ruler of the two, and many of the Mahrattas of Gwalior wished her to continue as regent. Whether from justice, or from motives of cold policy, the British Government sided with Scindia against the Baiza Baiee ; and she was ordered to take up her abode in some district beyond the limits of the Gwalior territory. In 1843, when Mukut Rao Scindia died, this territory came more closely than before under British influence; a new Scindia was chosen, with the consent of the Governor-General, from among the relations of the deceased Maharaja ; and with this new Scindia the aged Baiza Baiee appears to have resided until the time of the mutiny. Nothing unfavourable was known against this venerable lady, but when it was considered that she was a woman of great energy, and that many other native princesses of great energy—such as the Ranee of Jhansi and the Begum of Oude—had thrown their influence in the scale against the English, it was deemed proper to watch her movements. And this the more especially, as she had some cause to complain of the English policy in the Mahratta Dominions in past years. Although watched, however, nothing appeared to justify suspicion of her complicity with the rebels."
