  4. Paika Rebellion
    It was one of the earliest revolt recorded in history against the british empire. It started in the state of Orissa during 1817 by a specific group called the Paiks under the leadership of Bakshi Jagabandhu. They initially served under the british army, impressed by their prowess in archery and sword fighting.
    Reasons for revolt:
    As the colonial power no longer found the necessity of their services, they were slowly disbanded from the armed services and their initial duty of policing within the region was revoked as well.
    All the economical benefits received by the community were revoked , which included taxing their Jagirs issued during their services and the rent for the land cultivated.

    Such drastic changes evoked a sense of revolt within the community and led to the region wide agitation against company rule.

    Though the revolt is considered as one of the earliest fight against the colonial power it failed to make an impact on a national level, as it was confined within the state.
    The late 18th and early 19th century witnessed numerous independent struggles by despotic regional rulers against the colonial power. But none made an impact on the nation level of unification of the nation to fight company rule. Paika rebellion like the other rulers failed at national integration and recognition of the common enemy.
    As a result of their limited resource in men, arms and ammunition the revolt was short lived and dominated by the more powerful colonial power.

    Hence the paika rebellion was one of the earliest armed revolution against the company rule, away from the struggles made by other independent Indian rulers but failed to make an impact as the first national struggle for independence.
