POST COLONIAL WORLD
This movement of historical
rectification is bringing about a revolution in our view of history that
is only just beginning and is bound to change our idea of who we are
as human beings. India is another country whose history has been
greatly distorted by a colonial and materialistic European bias. India
was the foremost of the British colonies and the center for the spiritual view of humanity that the
materialistic mind has ever opposed.
Now historians of ancient India are raising questions about the
Euro centric interpretation of Indian history and bringing forth new
views that give greater validity to the traditional culture and literature of
the subcontinent which has always emphasized the spiritual life.
