Rajanikanta Gupta (1849 -1900) had no formal college education. He started his career as an assistant to Bhudeb Mukhopadhyay. He progressively wrote several textbooks on Indian History. He has also written a biography of Panini. His other works included a composition on the history of the Sepoy Mutiny
(Sipdhi Yuddher Itihas) in Bengali Language
. It is one of the earliest comprehensive and formal history of the Mutiny in any vernacular language. The first volume of it had been published in 1879; the fifth volume was completed just prior to his death.
The features of his works are use of metaphors, arrangement of paragraphs, placement of pauses and a narrative unique. It is shown that the over-arching imperial rule is beneficial and modernity under Queen Victoria is end of civilization. However the sepoys were tragic heroes, misguided and violent though honest to their beliefs.
