1. The story
In 1897, Pune was riddled with a bubonic plague. In order to look over the situation, a British official- W.C Rand– was appointed as the plague commissioner at the time. But instead of tending to ill people, his rule led to their exploitation. From being forced to strip naked in front of officers to people’s property being destroyed by British officials, Punekars had to face a lot of turmoil. As a result, the Chapekar brothers carried out India’s first ever revolution against the Britishers, and even assassinated W.C Rand. Gondya Ala Re will highlight all the crucial events from this chapter in history.
