The Punjab And Delhi In 1857

Description Freedom and Mutiny are the two sides of the same coin. What the natives or the ruled call revolution or freedom movement is branded as rebellion or Mutiny by the foreign occupiers of a country. This is what happened in India in 1857. The author, a contemporary Christian missionary records the revolt of the Indian troops of the British army and its crushing by the British rulers with the support of Sikh soldiers from Punjab. The author, being a British Christian Missionary, his account is biased and somewhat subjective. He attributes British victory in crushing the mutiny to the supervisor British management, god's protection of the Christians and internal jealousies and divisions among the Indian soldiers. His use of first person and naked association with the British and his unqualified praise for the British supremacy renders the whole account partial and one-sided. His stance is unmistakable from his patronizing attitude towards the British.[edit]
