Bayly brings to our notice what Eric Stokes has written in his book ‘The peasant armed: the Indian Revolt of 1857’. The century before 1857 witnessed more than 40 major rebellions apart from hundreds of minor ones. During the first century of British rule, there were a series of uprisings which Kathleen Gough has called restorative rebellions’’ as they were started by disaffected local rulers, Mughal officials or dispossessed zamindars. However, these were local in character and effects & isolated from each other because each rebellion had a different motive.
