I'm currently reading India after Gandhi: The History of the World's Largest Democracy written by Ramachandra Guha, and in one of the starting pages of the book, the author has written the sentence.
After the events of 1857 the Crown took over control of the Indian colonies.
I've two questions here:
- If the sentence below is grammatically correct and passes the rules of the English language?
- If it can replace the original sentence (written above) keeping the context same?
- After the events of 1857 the Crown took control over the Indian colonies.
If the sentences have any difference in the meaning, please enlighten me with it.
