Dateline 1857 Revolt Against the Raj
Dateline 1857 Revolt Against the Raj
Description
Back of the Book

Untraceable in their origin and unverifiable in their import, the rumours of 1857-forcible conversion, greased cartridges, end of the Company's rule at the centenary of Plassey, the disarming of native regiments – moved in a powerful current through the bazaars and sepoy lines making the sepoys as well as the local citizenry unsure of their future. The revolt against the Raj was the end of Mughal rule as well as the East India Company's rule in India replacing it with direct rule of the British government. Though the causes were many, ranging from social to cultural, and from economic to political, the uprising of the people against 'all things British' was the first event in the history of Hindoostan when people from different religions, castes and economic backgrounds came together to redeem their own past.

Dateline10
Introduction14
The revolt of 1857 was the most serious challenge that British rule faced before the coming of the national movement under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. Violent and aimed to destroy all things British, it was concentrated in North India and began in the sepoy lines, but very swiftly became an uprising of all sections of the population.
Barrackpore44
Most historians have argued that the revolt began to Barrackpore where on 29 March, a sepoy named Mangal Pandey defied his British officers. It was a dramatic moment and Mangal Pandey was hanged Was he the first rebel?
Meerut48
The uprising actually began in Meerut on 10 May. The sepoys attacked and killed British officers and their families. They destroyed government buildings and all property owned by Britons, and were joined in this carnage by peasants from the surrounding villages.
Delhi52
In Delhi, the sepoys prevailed upon the aging Bahadur Shah Zafar to accept the nominal leadership of the revolt. Once Bahadur Shah had accepted, rebellion engulfed Delhi and it fell to the rebels. It was only at the end of September that the British succeeded in recapturing Delhi after heavy fighting.
Lucknow80
In Lucknow the rebellion centered around Begum Hazrat Mahal and Birjis Qadr. The sepoys were joined by taluqdars and their men from the districts. It was the scene of fierce fighting and the British occupied the city in the winter of 1857, but the revolt continued for a few more months.
Kanpur120
In Kanpur the rebels carried out two massacres of the British to whom they had promised safe passage down the river to Allahabad. It thus became the site of the most terrible revenge on the part of the British.
Jhansi136
Jhansi is famous for Rani Lakshmibai who fought to save her kingdom, when she was surrounded on all sides by rebellious sepoys and an avenging British Army.

Testimonials
I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
