NATIONALISM IN INDIA – CBSE Class 10 Social Science

Nationalism in India : Introduction

There is a rise in nationalism due to the opposition to colonialism. The first war of independence for India was “The revolt” or Sepoy mutiny 0f 1857. Due to the opposition to British colonial rule, the people of India were suffering badly. The opposition resulted to form different groups of the anti-colonial rule. In this event, the common people of India were forced to participate in the First world war in which the British were willing to increase the defence expenditure levied on taxes. This harsh situation is the beginning of nationalism in India.

In the year 1918, there was a shortage of food grains and crops. It was a bad year as it leads to the feminine and outbreak of influenza.

In the year 1915, there was a coming of Mahatma Gandhi with the Indian freedom movement. In South Africa, he tested the idea of nonviolence and anti-colonial struggle. He was the leader who motivated different groups of society from all creeds, caste, and religion towards the single goal of freedom.
