Goa SCERT to include the pictures of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Chatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj; but unable to make other changes

Panaji (Goa): Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) had made a demand asking the Goa government to declare their strategy with respect to the History text-book, ‘Social Science – Our Past – 2’ in which the matter concerning Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is very negligible. One of the copies of this memorandum was given to department of ‘N.C.E.R.T.’ in Goa,  that is State Educational Research and Training Council (SCERT). Director of SCERT Mr. Nagraj Honnekeri had sent a letter to HJS accepting their demand saying that they were surely going to include the pictures of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Chatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj in the next academic year’s edition of the said text-book.

Mr. Honnekeri Futher says that SCERT was given the responsibility of printing and publishing the said text-book. The text-book is published by NCERT and to make some changes in the same would amount to declining its right to publish. NCERT does not allow that. The memorandum furnished by the HJS had objected to the insulting sentence in the 4th lesson of the text-book, “Bharat has to celebrate its Independence Day in the dwelling place of the Mughal kings as it does not have its own building for that. Mr. Honnekeri had mentioned in his letter that the above sentence could not be deleted or changed by the SCERT as it amounted to infringement of publication rights.

The government had published a circular stating that lessons 4th and the 5th, namely ‘The Mogal Empire’ and ‘Rulers and Buildings’ respectively were not to be taught in the academic year 2010-11. Then the HJS had asked them the reason why those 2 lessons were included in the present year’s text-book? What was the strategy behind that? What action government was going to take against those who had increased the cost of printing 15 additional pages comprising those unnecessary lessons and when was it going to recover that unnecessary printing expenses from them? But Director Mr. Honnekeri did not mention anything about it.
