The imposition of British rule and a ruthless policy of Imperialist exploitation created an explosive situation in India around the middle of the 19th century. Large bodies of Indian soldiers serving under the British East India Company spearheaded an uprising which soon turned into a popular revolt against alien domination in many parts of the country. The Great Revolt of 1857 is an outstanding landmark in the evolution of our national struggle for independence. It inspired revolutionary ideas and action among later generations and strengthened their determination to carry on the struggle against heavy odds until freedom was regained.
