Remembering Historian and thinker Dharampal

Shri Dharampal, the author of The Beautiful Tree and Indian Science and Technology in the Eighteenth Century, among other seminal works, passed away on October 24 at Sevagram (Gandhi’s ashram) near Wardha.

By meticulous research of the British sources over decades, Dharampal demolished the myth that India was backward educationally or economically when the British entered. His books are based on British documents of surveys conducted in India. He excelled at dispelling colonial myths about India and at bringing out the real strength, achievements and working of the Indian society.
