History changes from dynasty to dynasty and new names are given to erstwhile stalwarts. The government in the saddle in India are out to do this with rabbit’s speed with an attempt to win over the support, say political support, as from the masses. Democracy is supposed to be by the people and for the people. As a slogan it sounds so attractive but practically it is not. Whosoever are the people running the government go by their choices and favour and at times it looks like a dictator’s role and not that of a democrat. The news that Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru’s name is being removed from the text books in schools and colleges. Ignoring the great personality like Pt. Nehru, the very architect of present day India, is sans any sense, it is rather a sin. Howsoever popular the present day leadership could manage to be there is no match to a leader like him. Even if people are loyal and sincere to the masses in the country they have no reason to abandon the past in the context of the freedom Movement. The leadership that won the struggle for freedom to India in fact deserves to be worshipped and any move to erase them or their images amounts to an anti nation act deserving condemnation by all committed followers of the most historical an event like freedom movement of the country. If not corrected, the move to eradicate the images of the champions of the freedom movement has but to be condemned by the people of the country.
