Lord Macaulay, torch-bearer in the
path of colonial progress, recommended the spread of Western learning
through the medium of the English language. What emerged was a system
of education with ultimate objective of securing servants for public
administration, diverting young men and women from the study of
oriental to occidental literature, and arousing in young hearts a
passion for Western knowledge and culture.
This book provides an alternative in
svarāja (self-rule) envisaged and through primary education imparted
in the Bose Foundation School at Kāsī.
