Maharashtra Archives

Description This bulletin of the department of Maharashtra Archives deals with the official records related to the search for Nana Sahib Peshwa, one of the leading lights of the Indian uprising of 1857 against the British rule. This bulletin shows the original documents gleaned from the secret and political Department records of 1863 about the search and hunt for the capture of this national hero and his associates. The whole matter, consisting of official letters, govt. Instructions and operations, makes a thrilling reading and narrates several episodes and suspicious associates, supposed or real, during that frantic search. The whole correspondence reveals the desperation of British Army and civil officers and collaborative assistance of some Indian Princely rulers to serve their vested interests. The language reminds us of the formal usage of humble, respectful language used by British officers towards their seniors and Indian rulers[edit]
