Writing and Reading History: Analysis of Tippu Controversy


"So let us forget painting people in black and white. Let us stick to 
objective narration of history. When Tippu is explained to children 
let it be told that he committed x y and z crimes along with a b and c 
good works. Let us stop judging historic figures based on isolated 
incidents. "

"Tipu Sultan has always been misrepresented because the victors are 
the ones who have a say in recording history "
