Famous City of Bissau Rajasthan
is another quiet village of the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan, located 32
km from Jhunjhunu. It has seen variating fates in the pages of history.
Keshri Singh, son of Sardul Singh, established the town in 1746. The town
was administered quite peacefully until its reigns fell into the hands of
Shyam Singh, Keshri Singh's grandson.
The administration of the state saw a steep downfall under the rule of
Shyam Singh. He tried to extort huge sums of money from the merchants and
traders which led them to leave the territory. There was chaos all around,
as the thakurs resorted to brigandry. To bring this anarchy to an end, the
Britishers called the Shekhawati Brigade, but till then the situation was
handled by Shyam Singh's heir, Hammir Singh, who successfully brought back
the normalcy in the region.
