Revisiting 1857
As India celebrates 150 years of the 1857 uprising, interpreted variedly as the sepoy mutiny or the first war of India's independence, this collection tries to access 1857 through accounts of cricket matches between Indian sepoys and British officers, ballads, pictorial genres, comic books and filmic renditions. Written by some well-known academicians and young scholars, and edited by Sharmistha Gooptu and Boria Majumdar, this volume attempts to reassess the myths, memories and the lived presence of 1857.
