Sepoy Mutiny

Today is the anniversary of the First Sepoy Mutiny held in 1857.  Ironically while in India, never gave it much of a thought.  Not that I remembered the date today and had some special celebration commemorating the day.  But found it mentioned in one of the newspapers here - just a mention of the day.  I wonder if any of the Indian newspapers or news channels remembered this.  More about the rebellion which lasted almost a year and half... here.

Somehow, being in a foreign land, that too, the one against whom India fought for independence, being reminded of such a historical event is nostalgic.
