    I am not aware of the details but then I wonder what has Marx and Lenin to do with Indian history?

    We should also then add George Washington and English history too!

    There has already been an angry reaction from the people after the newspaper debacle, and not one has to watch what this will bring.

    Come on guys. This is a very good move from her. The left had used it to brain wash students before, but now it wont be possible thanks to her.

    So, don't jump your guns yet. It's not easy to read Mamata.

    Well, I guess your perception of left is different from mine. I am pro-industry. So is PRC. So was the USSR, and the entire Soviet Bloc. Bengal left is different, they are pro-farmer and anti-industry. It is peculiar to the history of Bengal.

    She is not getting rid of Karl Marx, only downsizing them and adding new material.

    I think its the right move considering that West Bengal textbooks have multiple chapters on Karl Marx and Communism (correct me if I am wrong). School should be expose children to various social and political movements in history including Communism and a balancing would do good.

    no you are wrong, school children must be taught the truth about communism. Also about how it caused the deaths of some tens of millions. The greatest ever seen in history. Also about how that Karl marx is a fag good for nothing idiot who thought every one can be made equal artificially. Also how Nehru moron's socialism destroyed India and is responsible for the poverty India is facing right now. Now, if they do that, then i will say Indian history book is correct:D

    An interesting view on this issue on First Post



    The rest of the article actually doesn't have anything to do with Mamta di but more about "deconstructing/revising Marxism"

    I did my schooling in ICSE Board. We were taught about Napoleon, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Vladimir Lenin, Simon Bolivar, Mao Tsetung, Kemal Ataturk, and many more historical figures. I think every school should teach about these figures.

    Anyway, Mamata Banerjee has already upset a lot of people with her newspaper gimmick. This particular issue might not be a big deal, but she is already becoming rather unpopular across the state.
