Date : August 23, 2016
“The Sepoy Mutiny in 1858, largely considered the first freedom struggle of India is notably different from the freedom struggle that took place many decades later leading to the independence of India in 1947,” said Dr Pampadevi, a historian who specializes in the history of modern India. She delivered a special lecture at Dayananda Sagar University (DSU) as part of the 2016 Independence Day celebrations, titled “70 Saal Azadi-Zara Yaad Karo Kurbani.” "The first freedom struggle was based on the interest of autocrats to perpetuate their rule over the provinces, where the sub-continent borrowed a one nation theory that led to the unification of provinces in years after independence," she added to conclude the presentation. The special lecture session hosted for students who pursue both Under Graduate (UG) and Post Graduate (PG) programmes in Journalism and Mass Communication under Bangalore University (BU) and DSU.
