This storyboard does not have a description.
Mongol Pandey, a soldier for the British East India Company, saves the life of Captain Gordon, and they become good friends.
During this time, the Caucasian people considered themselves superior to the native people, in this case, the Indians.
Even though slavery was banned in Great Britain, it was allowed in India. This surprised and outraged many people.
A rumor went around through the soldiers that the cartridge in a new supply of guns was made using pig and cow grease. This went against their religion, however Mongol Pandey trusted Captain Gordon, so he used the cartridge.
Another religious practice was Sati, or when widows would burn so they could join their husbands. The Company had outlawed this practice, and Captain Gordon, with the help of Mongol, had to enforce it.
The Company was supplying opium to China, and making a great profit. However, they find a stash of opium and find out that some natives were selling and growing opium for their own profit.
