Genuine History Alone Can Mould Character
Currently history is regarded as a formal, optional curricular subject of no special consequence. That attitude must be assiduously countered. History ought to be recognized as a foundation subject for every citizen. It must be subjectively written pinpointing and stressing what has been glorious in one's tradition and what has been shameful and wanting. Present-day history, taught in our educational institutions, lack that sterling quality. They present a goody-goody account of Hindu- Muslim-Christian camaraderie; that may be the job of a religious, spiritual or social discourse but certainly not of serious, down- to-earth history.
