History speaks through people. In their utterances, in their articulations, and, even in their silences, and in their actions and in their inactions history manifests itself. Particularly when an Indian opens his mouth, I can listen to the millennia gone by. History is there in our lives but not in our pedagogy. Most of our historians in place of unearthing the past have put massive load of earth on that. Incompetence (of a good number of them) combined with ideological disorientation has undone history in India. This problem combined with another pedagogical lacunae, which makes one feel that text-books contain gospel truths and there is no scope for probing or questioning, makes education, whatever we have, counter-productive. Result we can see - a menacing sway of ignorance.
