About this Item

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 of the revolt 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, caste and economic backgrounds came together to redeem their own past.
