of Genesis he calculated that God created the world in 4004 BC He was accurate in his calculations with the Bible but wrong about history Even to this day those Christians who deny Darwin cite Dr Ussher The Bible is a religious text which combines history and mythology There are excavations which unravel history within the text of the Bible The Iliad and The Odyssey have also been used to trace the history of the early centuries of ancient Greek civilisation Some elements of those epics are history and others mythology The new chairman of the Indian Council of Historical Research Dr Y S Rao is interested in exploring the Mahabharata as a historical text There is professional outrage from secular historians about anyone being serious about such a project They feel that Rao has been imposed upon historians as an agent of Hindutva by the new government There are quarrels and controversies among historians everywhere across the world British historians cannot agree about the civil war after four centuries of debate But they agree on the documents the artefacts recovered and the chronology American historians are no more agreed upon the causes of their civil war In India there used to be diversity among historians The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan sponsored a six-volume history of India from a Hindu point of view But that was during the liberal days of Jawaharlal Nehru It was Indira Gandhi who began the Manichean practice of us and them The good historians were secular and socialist They were to be given patronage Anyone who disagreed with the dominant point of view was right wing and perhaps communalist as well I speak with some experience having played a small part in the Cambridge Economic History of India project Dr Dharma Kumar whose assistant I was was forever denounced as an imperialist lackey because she had not signed up to the Left version of modern Indian history She did not believe the two centuries of British rule had been a story of unmitigated disaster She was robust enough to laugh her critics off It is this uniformity of political ideology despite much diversity among the secular historians which has now come to surface Why can a historian not take up the Mahabharata as a serious subject of history Of course the epic is a story and mythology and it has many versions Yet at the core is a bloody battle which has the character of a holocaust If you take the description of the war seriously 18 aukshahinis fought for 18 days and out of the hundreds of thousands of soldiers horses and elephants who fought only 10 people were left alive If the war depicted in the Mahabharata killed every adult Kshatriya in North India we should ask whether this was a true event D D Kosambi the polymath historian thought that the ancient Indian civilisation of those days (vaguely anytime between three and four thousand years ago) lacked the mineral resources technology and population to be able to have such a large war where by his reckoning five million people died But suppose only 50000 died Is it not still an interesting question for historians or just one historian to investigate Should there not be excavations on the site to see whether any old bones can be retrieved If there seems to be a Ramachandra palace under the Babri Masjid as some people believe there is obviously no hindrance in finding ancient artefacts and remains if you dig deep enough The real objection is not that Rao wishes to investigate the Mahabharata as a work of history Historians are angry because he is chairman of the ICHR After all he has been carrying on his research for a while The issue to me is the presence of the government of any party in choosing who should chair the ICHR Why can the historians themselves not elect their chairman Of course the government gives research grants and so he who pays the piper calls the tune The historians who are complaining enjoyed the patronage while they were politically the favourites What would have been much healthier is to have privately endowed research foundations on the lines of Ford to fund research without imposing a political agenda It is time Indian businesses began to take research funding seriously For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsNew Delhi: In the status quoist Congress it is hard to predict when and whether drastic changes on the lines of the BJP will ever take place However the party’s humiliating defeat in the general elections and successive defeats in the states have drilled into the party’s consciousness that the current state of affairs cannot be allowed to continue It is planning a revamp although when it materialises is anybody’s guess The core to the overhaul plan is building a connect with the masses and the elimination of people without grassroots connect from the decision-making process Talking to Firstpost three senior leaders of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) indicated that the party would soon set in motion a “comprehensive exercise” of reorganising the party structure These changes would include “introduction of new faces with people’s connect removal of non-political advisors who belong to Team Rahul elimination of the second line of command and restoring the confidence of the public in the party” “At present there are two centres of command – Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi – in the party Those who assist Madam Gandhi are seasoned politicians But some people around Rahulji are non-political They lack experience and are immature in political matters The party is planning to remove the second line of command which is with the Congress vice president” said one of the leaders Rahul’s advisors have ‘ no connect’ with the grassroots it is felt: AFP But rubbishing the allegation of the failure of the leadership of Rahul who had spearheaded the Lok Sabha campaign he said that “the debacle was the result of a range of factors including a series of corruption charges infighting faulty ticket distribution communal polarisation an aggressive campaign by Narendra Modi and biased media reporting” At the same time he admitted Rahul still needs to learn how to put himself in order “He jumped into the well of the House to demand a debate on communal violence but kept mum when the bill was brought before the House; he criticized the Speaker for not allowing a debate on price rise but was spotted sleeping while the issue was being discussed” said the leader What the party needs at this juncture is the “restoration of people’s confidence” and “development of ground-level leadership” said another leader revealing that “madam (Sonia Gandhi) is easily accessible but Rahul is not Soon you will see new leaders in the party’s Central Working Committee (CWC) with grassroots connections It will help the party re-connect with the people” added another “With an aim to revive the party all MPs and workers have been instructed to hit the streets and homes of ordinary Indians across the country to re-connect with the people and strengthen the grassroots connections She (Sonia Gandhi) has also asked all spokespersons to defend the party strongly in the media and work aggressively in different public forums throughout the country” he said He admitted that the party cadres were ignored and the blunder reduced the party to 44 seats in the Lok Sabha “It is true that party cadres were ignored and leaders became completely inaccessible to the foot soldiers but we are making efforts to reach out to the party workers and restore confidence in them Efforts are on to improve coordination between cadres and the party” he added When asked why the Congress has come on the back foot and appears nowhere the third leader said “Because of the magnitude of the defeat we faced our sprit and moral have gone down And therefore the party play the role of a vigilant Opposition” But he said the party has realised that politics these days cannot be done by raising the issue of poor and on the basis of communalism and secularism binary “This is a strong government with an overwhelming public support We cannot regain people’s confidence by merely making public statements against Narendra Modi or the BJP We need a strategy and foolproof plan to corner the government in Parliament and other public forums The party has started working on it” he said
