My friends often feel that I exaggerated role of Communists and Macaulay on Indian Education. Macaulay proofs are already shared here. Now, let me share prominent example of communist influence.
Below is his introduction from Wiki:
Damodar Dharmananda Kosambi (31 July 1907 – 29 June 1966) was an Indian mathematician, statistician, philologist, historian and polymath who contributed to genetics by introducing Kosambi map function. He is well known for his work in numismatics and for compiling critical editions of ancient Sanskrit texts. His father, Dharmananda Damodar Kosambi, had studied ancient Indian texts with a particular emphasis on Buddhism and its literature in the Pali language. Damodar Kosambi emulated him by developing a keen interest in his country’s ancient history. Kosambi was also a Marxist historian specialising in ancient India who employed the historical materialist approach in his work. He is particularly known for his classic work An Introduction to the Study of Indian History.
Now, lets come to the proof. When you write any book, you dedicate it too someone close to you. Your inspiration. Your role-model and guide.
This is what Author DD Kosambi dedicated his book on Bhritihari!
