The partition of Bengal and subsequent Swadeshi and Boycott movement opened a new episode in the history of freedom movement of India. Though the movement started in Bengal it spread all over India. Starting from Bengal the agitation spread like wild fire in cities, towns and even villages where housewives, students and people of every corner in life participated to protest against the divisive policy of the Raj which was unprecedented in Indian history. A remarkable aspect of the movement was the widespread student participation all over Bengal, and in several other parts of India. The students showed the greatest enthusiasm and created Swadeshi spirit in Bengal and also India. This movement had left a deep impact on literature, music, art, science and education of Bengal as well as India. The patriotism, sacrifice and courage of the students earned great respect from the common people.
