After the British removed the last Peshwa
from power, their arrogance was bound- less. They brushed aside even the Mughul Emperor.
Dawn is the child of the night. On one side there was a determined effort to destroy
freedom; on the other side attempts were being made to get ride of slavery.
The love of freedom can never be put down; the more it is suppressed the stronger it
grows. On one side the crowns of the native kings were trembling, the kings were accepting
the humiliating conditions imposed by the Company government and their states were being
made protected states. ON the other hand, the desires was growing to nip British rule in
the bud and defend the countrys freedom and honour. But outwardly there was calm;
every thing was being done secretly; the country was like the Volcano which is silent and
secret before erupting.
