Dateline 1857: Revolt Against the Raj

By Rudrangshu Mukherjee

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. Dateline 1857: Revolt Against the Raj, relooks at the sepoy rebellion charting its journey from Barrackpore to Jhansi. A splendidly illustrated book with maps of the six major storm centers and rare photographs of the destruction that brought the people of India together to fight for their right and their country.
