Why this question?

This topic is in news as it’s 72nd anniversary of RIN Mutiny.  

Key demand of the question:

You have to objectively comment on significance of the RIN Mutiny – is its significance overblown? Why its importance, if at all was very important, was not acknowledged etc 

Directive Word:

Comment – You should balance your answer through your opinion on the issue. You can say it’s very significant but its importance was acknowledged as its nature was antithetical to democratic aspirations of new nation.  

Structure of Answer:

In the introduction, you have to take a stand. Also highlight why it’s momentous. 

In the body, you should defend your stance. Do so in 3-4 paragraphs with each para dedicated to one of the aspects of RIN Mutiny. You should also comment on RIN trials – how it overshadowed Mutiny. Make sure facts are not missing.  

In the conclusion, balance out by writing that each event that took place towards getting India independence have had their significance and it should be acknowledged. (or draw your own conclusion based on content of your answer)
