The Paika Bidroha (Paika Rebellion) of 1817 in Odisha briefly shook the foundations of British rule in the eastern part of India. Paikas were essentially the peasant militias of the Gajapati rulers of Odisha who rebelled against the British under the leadership of Baxi Jagandhu Bidyadhara as early as 1817 to throw off the British yoke.
