sir i want to ask that
Q. what was august offer?
In order to win over the sympathies of the Indian masses and political parties during the war, His Majesty’s Government issued a White Paper on August 8, 1940. The document, which later on is known as the August Offer in history books, promised for the establishment of an independent Indian Constituent Assembly with completely indigenous representation and a power to frame the future constitution of the country. The offer also provided the option for the extension of the Viceroy’s Executive Council. Simultaneously, the August Offer talked about the rights of minorities, especially Muslims as it declared that the majority community will not be given the veto power and full weight would be given to the views of minorities in making of the Constitution. However, the document made it clear that all the promises will be fulfilled after the conclusion of the war and that too if all the communities and political parties would help the British in their war efforts.
In order to discuss the August Offer, Quaid-i-Azam held meetings with the Viceroy, Lord Linlithgow, on August 12 and 14. This was followed by the meeting of the Muslim League Working Committee on September 1 and 2. The Committee appreciated the clauses of the offer in which the British agreed to accept that no future constitution will be recognized by the Government without the approval and consent of the minority communities. However, the committee showed its reservations on issues like the composition of the Executive Council and the vagueness of the War Advisory Council. The working Committee also made it clear that no formula was accepted to the party which was against the spirit of the Lahore Resolution in which clearly declared that the Muslims of India were a nation by themselves and they alone were the final judges and arbiters of their own future destiny. The Indian National Congress also opposed the offer and their president, Abul Kalam Azad, even refused to discuss the formula with the Viceroy.

what was the nehru report?
why did nehru report issued?
which of following was the most important development between 1927 till 1933?
Answer 1:
Nehru report was basically the demands of the Indian people which were put forward in opposition to the Simon commission. In May of 1928, members of the Congress, the League, the Liberals, the Hindu Mahasbha and the Central Sikh League met in an All-Party Conference to draft the constitution which the Indian people thought should be used to govern their country. Pundit Motilal Nehru chaired the committee that devised this constitution contained in the Nehru Report.
If it's a 7-mark question, we could even add the demands of Nehru report which were:
i. Immediate Domnion Status for India
ii. India to be a federation with a two-chamber parliament
iii. the protection of minorities through a system of reserving seats in the two chambers
iv. the vote for all adult men and women

Answer 2:
The nehru report was issued in opposition to the Simon Comission as mentioned above. In 1927, the government appointed a seven men committe under the chairmanship of Sir John Simon to consider the situation in India. All the members of the committee were British and not one of them was Indian. Not surprisingly the composition of the committee was considered an insult in India and all parties became convinced that they must settle their differences and work together in opposition to the Simon Commission. Therefore, they issued the Nehru Report to let the government know what they wanted.

(I think the last question is not complete! )

why was monford reform condemned by india? (7)
hey, answer number one is of 14 marks pls answeer again :)
actually 14 mark questions are not like this! they are rather like a discursive essay...even if this question comes in exams, it wouldn't be like this, this can be of 7 marks or 4 marks but for it to be 14 marks, the question must be set differently...cuz we are not supposed to study in such depth that we would be able to write an essay on 'what was Nehru Report' may be you wrote the question wrong..
like your question "Montague chlemsford reforms was the most important political development between 1909 - 1920 to seek the solution to the indian problems. Do you agree? explain" can be on 14 marks but not this one.

why was partition of Bengal annulled in 1911?
The fierce opposition of the Bengali Hindus forced the British to reverse the partition. Mass protests, boycott of British goods, and public mornings of the Hindus were uncontrollable for British. British took some immediate steps to deal with the protests like restrictions on newspapers, public meetings, the Press Act passed and arresting radical Hindu leaders but in fact, it rather more infuriated the Hindus.
The Hindus thought that it was a plan against them to help the Muslims unite in Bengal and reduce the so-called 'threat' of Hindus. They believed that British had tried to weaken Hindu unity by dividing Bengal and establishing East Bengal with a Muslim majority.
The British cloth being burned in public and wearing locally produced clothes made the sale of British goods drop dramatically.

This lead to the partition of Bengal being reversed.
