New Icons Introduced In NCERT Books | Know Why

The prescribed NCERT books for Classes 6 to 10 have undergone changes and as per the officials, after the changes, the emphasis is likely to be laid on the set of the Nationalist icons which were sidelined in the first place from the memory of the country. Such claims have been made by the ruling party as per the reports.

The books of National Council of Educational Research and Training which are being read by millions of students in India are likely to undergo necessary changes and are known to depict the icons of spiritual leaders like Swami Vivekananda as well as Sri Aurobindo. Freedom fighters like Vallabhbhai Patel, Peshwa Bajirao Ballal, Lala Lajpat Rai, Maharana Pratap along with Chhatrapati Shivaji and the Jat King Surajmal as well. These icons have been introduced in the History books and the ones which already existed have experienced an extension of the space which has been provided to them.

It has been felt that the need to specify the ‘glorious past’ of the country needs to be studied by the emerging youth of the country.
