The ‘True’ face of the East India Company and the resulting discontent amongst the native Indians must have prompted Lord Byron to make a prophecy regarding the Indian rebellion in his poem – Curse of Minerva. 

             Curse of Minerva

And glares the Nemesis  of native dead; Till Indus rolls a deep purpureal flood.And claims his long arrear of northern blood. So may ye perish! Pallas,  when she gave.Your free-born rights, forbade ye to enslave... 
                                          (March 1811)
