Descrizione

The true history of the inner spings of the great Indian Mutiny yet remains to be written, and perhaps the work is allihut impossible. How the mutiny was planned and how the conspiracy spread all over Hindustan must perhaps for ever remain a mystery. But the motive forces behind that rising need not be equally obscure. It is to be feared however that English historians of the Mutiny have not been able to grasp the situation in all its bearings. Hurrish Chunder was a shrewd observer of men; he was surely better able to feel the temperament of Indians of his days and can be trusted to have arrived at more accurate conclusions as to the feelings which swayed the people in making them rise against theauthority of the English Government. We will not here recount the diagnosis made by him but will refer the reader to some of the articles of the Hina'oo Patn'ot of those days which we select for this volume. They are certainly worthy of anxious consideration of the historian of the Mutiny as the thoughts of a clever con temporary who had the advantage of being an Indian.
