Legacy of Social Discourse

The legacy of social discourse of a country is very important for the development of national consciousness. But, sadly, the legacy of writing of social discourse in India has always followed a murky trend.

There has been a tendency to be loyal storytellers rather than dispassionate social commentators. This is now being vigorously followed by a section of our fellow citizens with a deep desire to seek favour from the government and various influential quarters. The way the contribution of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, and the great revolutionaries of Bengal, Maharashtra and the Punjab have been ignored is a handiwork of some historians at the instance of the government. For example, the huge number of publications from the Centre for Historical Studies of the Jawaharlal Nehru University or the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) have persistently ignored the contribution of these great patriots and glorified the role of the mainstream
nationalist movement led by Gandhi and Nehru. This is a matter of serious concern as the content of this social discourse of India has made generations together uneducated and biased in their opinion.
