Anger emanates from hunger and hunger gives birth revolution. The peasants of Assam resorted to the path of violence against the Colonial Government in the close of the 19th century but their attempts met with failure. This paper is an honest attempt through which some of the major factors that precipitated the fiasco of the upheavals of 1893-94 are addressed.
