The onset of the Great Rebellion:-

1857 In AD 26 In February, the first demonstration was witnessed by the sepoys against a fat parrot in Baharampur, 29th In March at Barrackpore, the army stationed at Sipahi Mangalpand refused to use Tota.

After punishing the rebel soldiers, Mirat's soldiers killed English officers and headed for Delhi. Delhi soldiers also joined the riot and occupied Delhi and declared Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah as Emperor of India. Delhi is the epicentre of the great Rebellion.

The cause of the failure of the Great Rebellion:-

There were several reasons for the failure of the Great Rebellion.

The great Rebellion took place in certain areas. This Rebellion has not taken place everywhere in India And the people of all regions did not join in this great Rebellion. There was no sign of revolt in Punjab, Rajasthan, South India, Sindh, Assam and Bangla.

There was no well-planned and centralized organization of this great Rebellion. There was no rebellion anywhere. Nana Sahib, Queen of Jhansi and Begum of Ayodhya were individually rebelling according to their own ideas.

There was no communication between the rebels in different places centrally. As a result, it was easier for the British to suppress the insurgency in different places.

The leaders of the great Rebellion did not match their aims and goals. Laxmibai's goal was to protect his kingdom, and Nanasaheb aimed to regain his lost status. Many rebels sought restoration of the Mughal Empire. Again the goal of many independent countries.

Apart from a few, many native states and zamindars were loyal to the English. So they did not join the Great rebellion. Kashmir, Patiala, Rampur, Scindia, Rajput, Gurkha and others did not join the rebellion. They tolerated the British in suppressing the rebellion.

This great rebellion was caused by the resentment of the class. There was no leader capable of managing this rebellion. The Mughal emperor was accepted by the rebels as the emperor of India during the rebellion. The rebellion failed because there was no competent leadership.

Modern armour and sufficient supplies and qualified generals were in the English army. In comparison, the rebels had no advanced weapons, ammunition and supplies. As a result, the rebels could not succeed in the unequal struggle.

The rebels had persecuted and robbed ordinary people in some areas. The people of these regions did not support the rebellion. Therefore, with such public support, the British easily suppress the revolt. The Great Rebellion was initially successful but ultimately failed.
