The Kala Pani prison, site of exiled political prisoners under British rule, is a stark reminder of the millions of Indians killed as a result of British occupation, and the many more who were imprisoned, widowed, or disenfranchised. Despite international preference for a sanitized, nonviolent portrayal of the freedom struggle via Mahatma Gandhi, Indians today also remember the brutality of the occupying regime, and the sacrifices of populist fighters such as Bhagat Singh, Ashfaqulla Khan, and Mangal Pandey.
