Britain's "Jewel in the Crown"
Social Class in India
Great Britain viewed India as their "jewel in the crown" because it was their largest supplier of raw materials and its largest market for finished goods.
British officers made up the upper class in India. The lower class was made up of British sergeants and lower. Indian social status was determined by a caste system. Indians were treated as less than the British in their own country.
Indians resented the strict regulations that the British imposed. The constant racism and persuasion to become Christian also contributed to the frustration. On May 10, 1857, the sepoys rebelled and captured Delhi.
