SEBA Class 10 History (Social Science) Chapter 1: Partition of Bengal and Swadeshi Movement
The partition of Bengal is one of the most important chapters in the freedom struggle of India. This partition, which occurred during the reign of Lord Curzon (1899-1905), is a historic event in the political history of India. The creation of two states by dividing the vast Bengal province stirred a national struggle against British rule in the whole of India. This event is known as the second important political upheaval in India after the Sepoy Mutiny in 1857.

SEBA Class 10 History (Social Science) Chapter 3: Anti-British Rising and Peasant Revolts in Assam
By the thirties and forties of the 19th century, the East India Company established itself as a powerful ruler in India. In Assam also, they created a strong administrative base and successfully thwarted all possible uprisings of the local people against the British. This was clear from the failed rebellion of Gomdhar Konwar and Piyoli Phukan. Through a completely new revenue system, they took control of the economies. In this revenue system, the foreign government attached more importance to the collection of taxes. They took no measures to erase the sorrows and difficulties of the peasants and poverty-ridden subjects. In Assam, in the administrative system prior to that of the British, revenue was not collected through cash.
SEBA Class 10 History (Social Science) Chapter 4: Indian Freedom Movement and National Awakening in Assam
Like in other parts of India, by the end of the 19th century, voice of dissent against colonial dominance began to stir the people of Assam. Gradually the voice of dissent against the British rule found expression in the writings of several prominent personalities of the time arousing feelings of nationalism in the region. Several socio-cultural organisations were formed to highlight the problems and aspirations of the common people.
SEBA Class 10 History (Social Science) Chapter 5: Cultural Heritage of India and North East Region
Around 4000 BC, a developed civilization was formed in the Sindhu Valley. This civilization included major towns including Harappa and Mahenjodaro and it was extended from Sindhu valley to Meerut in Ganga valley. Indus valley civilization has a significant contribution to the formation of Indian culture and Hindu religion. Apart from religious differences and co-existence, spirituality greatly influences the social life, culture and civilization of Indian people. The impact of religious faiths can be seen in the culture, traditions literature, art, sculpture, architecture, music, dance, painting, morality, values, rituals, festivals and lifestyle of the people of India. The geographical diversity of India also resulted in the diversity of the cultural heritage of the people.
