Swami Vivekananda and Ramana Maharshi were born years after the Indian revolt of 1857 ended.
The Indian Rebellion of 1857, also referred to as the first war of independence, took place between May 10, 1857 - July 8, 1859. It was a major uprising in India against the rule of the British East India Company, which served as a sovereign power on behalf of the British government. It began as a sepoy mutiny in Meerut and later spread as other mutinies in the north, east, and central India.
Swami Vivekananda was born on January 12, 1863, and Ramana Maharshi on December 29, 1879, years after the first rebellion ended (1859). It is incorrect to say that they had contributed or had been a “precursor to the revolt of 1857.”
