In this article we will do an analytical study of some important incidents of contemporary time in India. The Treaty of General Permanent Defensive Alliance between the British Government (the English East India Company and His Excellency the Nawab Nizam ul Mulk Asaf Jahan Bahadur), the Subedar of the Deccan, his children, heirs, and successors settled at his court by James Kirk Patrick Resident. Lord Wellesley was a vast officer. He started a defensive and Subsidiary Alliance; in this Alliance, he made a partition of the state and friendship with the state. Lord Hastings extended himself to smaller chiefs of Bundelkhand, Central India, and Gujarat. The subsequent Treaty of Sagauli played an important role in the British establishment over India and was signed in 1816. This established the supremacy of the British frontier in India. The success of the British in the different wars brought the whole country ruled by the princess under the control of the British government. In 1824 the 47th native infantry reached Barrack Pore mutinied. They refused to surrender their arms, and they left the parade ground. Mutiny was suppressed by the English officers, and they exploited the soldiers. The war with the Gorkhas of Nepal, who were known as superior-quality warriors, played an important part in the expansion of British rule in India.
