Pre­serv­ing Past Glory

Reader's Digest (India) - - React -

Mr Ru­drang­shu Mukher­jee’s con­tention [Good Read­ing, Au­gust] in his book that Mangal Pandey had noth­ing to do with the Up­ris­ing of 1857 is in­ter­est­ing. There are sev­eral other such the­o­ries too. While it is hard to fully ver­ify or to dis­prove them, we should re­spect the heroic ver­sions even if only to rekin­dle dwin­dling pa­tri­o­tism. Con­trar­ian ideas are fine but let’s con­sider past glory too.
