From now on, the history of the classical period will be taught in the textbooks
The story of Ramayana in the history books, the story of Ram as a king, his exile, his way of ruling? No matter how epic they may be called, if the government approves, these things will soon find their way into the school's history books. These will be called the histories of the 'Classical Period'.
In social sciences, the high-level committee of the 'National Council of Educational Research and Training' or 'NCERT' has proposed this to the government.
CI Isaac, chairperson of this committee of NCRT, said, "What is taught as ancient history of India in the current history curriculum mainly talks about foreign invasions. The foreign forces are described in detail. Those who invaded and ruled us are talked about. The history of the Epic Age and the History of the Vedic Age are not in books. Our children don't know about the Golden Age of India. Ramayana or Mahabharata is not in their curriculum. In our first meeting, we proposed the inclusion of Ram. Why do we only read the history of invaders? The war that we lost, read the story? Why don't we have a golden age of India?"
The seven-member committee, headed by Isaac, had earlier recommended that only 'India' be used as the country's name in history books. Proposed to add a new chapter called 'Classical History'. According to the committee's recommendations, classical history should include parts of the Vedas, the Vedic era, important parts of the Ramayana and Rama's journey as a king. The committee also recommended that British rulers in modern history be reduced to include extensive chapters on 'national heroes' including Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Shyamaprasad Mukhopadhyay, and Chandrasekhar Azad.Morning and evening is growing cold!
