Mentor’s comment-

  • In the introduction define the naval mutiny.
  • The answer body must capture the reasons that led to the revolt. Then move on to discuss the role of naval mutiny in ending British colonial aspirations. Present the timeline of the entire mutiny, its impact and effect. The RIN Mutiny began in Bombay, and spread throughout British India, covering 78 ships, 20 shore establishments and 20,000 sailors. The mutiny also found widespread support among the people who were already discontent with the British establishment.
  • Conclude with significance.
