By nature, the revolts of 1893-94 were the peasants and state direct confrontation and they were an open rebellion against the government. Basically, the revolts of 1893-94 were secular in nature as all sections united against the government. Finally, the revolts met with failure in 1894 and after that, there was no outburst of peasants in Assam. But the revolts though they failed, they increased consciousness and awareness in Assam and provided the main strength to the freedom struggle in Assam in further years. This article is an honest attempt through which some aspects beginning from the nature to the effects are addressed in a researching way.
