1859 Indigo disturbances in Bengal

Indigo disturbances in Bengal: took place in 1859 and 1860 immedi-
ately after the revolt of 1857 between European indigo planters and
the Bengal peasants. The prevailing system often compelled the Ben-
gal peasant to grow indigo against both his will and his interests.
