    History-travelogue-autobiography, Mazha Pravas is all of these, none of these and a bit of each, being the first eyewitness Indian account of the upheavals and changing fortunes during the Rebellion of 1857. Vishnubhat Godse, a priest, wrote his memoirs on the urging of a historian who both shaped and edited it. This book uses nineteenth century idiom and depicts contemporary familial, social and political life in cross-regional terms and straddles historiography and literature. Godse interpreted the Rebellion as a righteous response to British interference in Hindu and Muslim inheritance, and his assessment of its failure was a moral one: it was the rebels' unforgivable sin of killing women and children--against the shastras--that ensured their eventual defeat. Godse's narration plunges the reader straight into the heart of turbulent times and offers a slice of history that has impacted popular imagination for the last one hundred and fifty years. It illustrates how rigidly the social structure operated, how the British gradually gained control, and highlights the power that Vedic rites and their performers had over the population. This creative travelogue of the nineteenth century serves as one of the authoritative bookends of the historical discourse on Rani Lakshmibai, Jhansi, and 1857.
