India's First Struggle for Freedom – 1857

With the 150th anniversary of the India's First Struggle for Freedom in the news, I remembered my visit a few years ago to the York Minster in York, England. There, inside this imposing church, was a memorial to the British soldiers killed in that struggle.

What we read in the history books under the “Indian Sepoy Mutiny” was real. We actually killed a few of the British! 😉 I don't know how many thousands of Indians died in the aftermath. Jai Hind!
