British Lions and the Indian Tigers: Triumph of the Sepoy against the British Sword Rs.495.00/-

$23.00

The British conquered India through a brilliant three-prong strategy. Common laws and procedures, common civil, judicial and police services had to be created for convenience of administration; the Indian Army was raised for the security of the empire and their overseas possessions. These steps united a hopelessly divided India politically and laid the foundation and created infrastructures for a nation state.

The Indian Soldiers, recruited from all parts of British India, were thus the true representatives of the Indian people who were not accessible to political indoctrination as there were no viable communications. The Soldiers fought alongside the British troops in several wars in Asia, Africa and Europe and thus acquired a positive vision of freedom, which was manifested in the numerous mutinies in the Indian Army especially in the Sepoy Mutiny in 1857, and the decisive revolt against British discrimination and hauteur in Singapore in February 1942, under Captain Mohan Singh, which induced the British to quit India in August 1947, for fear of another 1857. The book gives details of how and why this happened.
