Students in Rajasthan schools will soon learn about various historic personalities who played important role in the freedom of India as the government has decided to include the references to 200 historical personalities as a part of syllabus for the school.
Glorious history of Rajasthan
Primary and Secondary Education minister, Vasudev Devnan, said "slave mentality did not allow some books on history to come out" and "now it is time for students to learn about the glorious history."
Historic personalities whose names have been added to the syllabus are yet unknown but minister said that appropriate space has been given to every religion and sect.
"Rajasthan has a glorious history. We need to rise above the slave mentality and to connect students with historic truths. Post independence, several history books were not allowed to come out just because of the slave mentality," the minister said.
