A very plausible contention about a book on the Rising of 1857 is that it may evince a racial spirit which characterized the writings on the Indian Mutiny in general. The prejudices and deep-rooted convictions generated by the distemper of that age were no doubt reflected in the mutiny literature of the nineteenth century, but historical writings on the Mutiny in the post-centenary years of the Sepoy War seem to have favored a more rational spirit in approaching the subject. Dr. S. N. Sen who had embodied this spirit so well writes: ‘Time, however, is a great healer. Independent India may well afford to ignore many of the shortcomings of the former rulers,
and Englishman do not any longer feel obliged to defend everything
that colonial imperialism dictated’.

Rajasthan, Delhi and Agra are the jewels in India's crown. From fairy-tale palaces and epic forts to dizzying festivals and wildlife encounters, this is India at its unbeatable Bollywood best.
