Few themes of modern Indian history could be as important as the history of the Indian National Congress. It has been truly said that "The history of the Indian national Congress is the history of the origin and development of national life in India." The history of the Congress is also the history of the Indian people in their struggle for freedom. As a result of the introduction of British rule over India and the influences which accompanied it, new social forces were generated which profoundly affected Indian society. As a result of the development of new professions and the growth of education and the press, a new class of persons had come into existence by the third quarter of the nineteenth century, whose interests clashed with those of the British bureaucracy in India. In their political outlook the members of this class were pro-British, and in their social outlook generally European. They did not contemplate the end of the British rule, but wanted a share in the Government of the country so that they might learn the British art of government and benefit from the blessings of the British Constitution.
