Om boka

Although often neglected and underplayed in mainstream history, armed resistance to British imperialism is a significant part of India's epic struggle for freedom. The essays in this volume, written over several years, document various episodes of resistance highlighting the role of freedom fighters who inspired generations of Indians by their sacrifices. They discuss the Vellore Mutiny, the Chittagong Uprising, the Non-Cooperation Movement and the militants of Bengal, Gandhi's attitude to the execution of Bhagat Singh, the Telengana and Kakdwip rising, among others. The essays also underline the fact that the fight against colonial oppression and exploitation was inextricably linked to the struggle against feudalism.
