Rise of Indian Nationalism 1885-1905 .

The time in between the year 1885-1905 is the first phase of moderate Nationalism. The Indian National Congress was founded in the year 1885 and was loyal to the British Crown. These early nationalists adopted a peaceful approach as they had faith in the British Crown, they had a friendly approach towards the British Crown, even though they felt the presence of injustice in the society and saw the need for proper governance in the country.

The early Nationalists used to believe in a peaceful approach while avoiding any kind of confrontation, moving towards meeting their goals through constitutional means. They believed the relation and continuation of the long term would benefit both countries. This approach was often criticized by fellow Indians, as most of their aims or demands were not entertained by the British.

But the early nationalist was able to spread awareness and unite India. The early nationalists created a widespread awakening throughout the nation; Indians now shared a common bond in economic and political terms. The early nationalists were able to highlight the nature and character of the British empire in front of the nation. The efforts and inputs of these people brought in various reforms in society, and one such achievement is the Public Service Commission appointment.
