Roznamcha of Munshi Jeevan Lal During the First War of Indian Independence in 1857 

I will be posting excerpts from Munshi Jeevan Lal’s Roznamcha or diary. Jeevan Lal was the British Governor General’s agent in The Mughal Court and it was practice to write a daily diary – a bulletin that was sent to the British officers. This continued during the summers of 1857.
Major Hodson of ‘Hodson Horse’ had established a highly efficient intelligence network and recruited the Services of Rajab Ali, Mirza Ilahi Baksh, father-in-law of heir apparent, Mirza Fakhru, and Munshi Jeewan Lal.
They reveal the highly organized spy net-work run by Hindus and Muslims who outmatched each other in providing vital information to the British regarding the activities of rebels.
