There was little to cheer Gokhale when he left England at the end of August 1906. Not only had Morley failed to rectify the mistakes of the Tory regime in India, he had asked for a moratorium on all political agitation for a couple of years so that he and Minto could work out a scheme of reforms. Little did Morley realize that the mood of Indian nationalists, sick with hope long deferred, was already turning into one of weariness, frustration, and even bitterness. The impression that was growing was that constitutional reforms would not be conceded by Britain and would have to be extorted from her. This chapter describes how the partition of Bengal stirred national feeling and dissipated the lethargy of decades.

Keywords:   Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Tory regime, Morley, Minto, political agitation, constitutional reforms, partition of Bengal, Indian nationalism
