The government under the leadership of the Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma has constituted a committee to rewrite India's ancient history. It is the government's intention to trace the history of the country back to 12,000 years and 'fill the gaps' created by earlier historians who the government feels, may have carried a bias. On the show, we debate whether history can be written without an ideological tilt? Will this attempt to 'rewrite' history by the government, ignore facts while supporting a certain stand point? Should the government get involved in how the history of a country is written or should this be the exclusive mandate of social scientists and academicians? For all this and more watch this week's episode of The Big Fight.
