The Elephants and the Monsters: An Episode of the Indian Insurrection

Much had been written in English about the 1857 mutiny in India, most of which subscribe the version of the British rulers. The French were against the expansionist East India Company at that time. Their vision about the peoples’ resistance didn’t get much revealed, but stories of those resistances are found to be resonated among the French writers. Though never in English, it was once translated in Portuguese— from there Sovan Sanyal translates it with a long introduction and necessary notes.
