      Sorry for the late reply. 😦
      Here is what I feel best answers your question as per my knowledge and level of understanding.
      * The war signified restlessness and displeasure among Indians.
      * Indians realized the unfair methods and hidden motives of the British.
      * The war took place on a national level. Though it took place at different places across India, the people were united for once.
      * The war proved to be a turning point in Indian history. Indians rebelled against the British and stood up for their beliefs and traditions.
