Alternate history being taught in Kolkata schools

leave a comment »

I am not sure if I should really trust a story coming from Sify – but its kind of funny. Apparently students in ritzy Kolkata schools aren’t being taught history properly. It’s funny – but kind of sad if true.

The British were not true to their word. Even though they granted formal Independence to India on August 15, 1947, they shilly-shallied over the withdrawal process, which brought Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and his Indian National Army into the scene. And, finally forced Lord Curzon to jump into the sea at Gateway of India on January 26 of the following year. Hence India has two ‘very auspicious days of national importance’: First Independence Day and second, the Republic Day.
