Title

A Fictionalized Account of Indian Historical Event in “ James Gordon Farrel’s The Siege of Krishanpur”

Authors

Abstract

History, for the common man has been nothing but a story of the countries, civilizations and rulers. It is considered a record of wars and victories and not defeats, innovation and fall of empires and emperors, which reflects that history is written by the strong and victorious. In this way, the power and sovereignty being a common factor regulate the creation of history. When history becomes a tool in the hands of the wealthy and the powerful, naturally the poor and the weak are marginalized. This is a natural response and opposition to the oppression and domination of the Western world over other nations, cultures and civilizations. All these oppressions were bursting out in India in the form of the revolt of 1857. The Indian revolt of 1857 has played a significant role in the history of Indian literature and also in world literature. It is described by many writers and historians in different ways and styles. James Gordon Farrell describes the historical revolt of 1857 in a fictional framework, which was known as the Indian Sepoy revolt in England. He tries to show the various problems of the British, which they have to face in India, during the revolt of 1857, such as starvation, disease of cholera, fear of the soldier’s attack and the Indian hot environment. Apart from it, he describes some revolt incidents of Barahmpur and Barrackpur battles.
