Shri Sita Ram Goel was a veritable Firekeeper, being one of India’s greatest historians in contemporary times. He pioneered the detoxification and decolonization of India’s history writing.
Indian history was hijacked by Marxists, left-liberals and anti-Hindus post-independence, continuing the colonization of the Hindu mind. We were given a ‘secular’ education, which in India’s context had come to mean everything anti-Hindu. Three generations of Hindus post-independence were deracinated by a hostile narrative of India which was anti-Hindu and non-indigenous. Hindus were taught to hate their culture, history and religion.
SRG took up the challenge and wrote around twenty-five books, seeking to remove all ideological biases from history writing in India. He also created a publishing house, called Voice of India, where he gathered India’s finest historians, thinkers, scholars, linguists and scientists to write the true decolonized history of India, trying to reverse the deracination of Hindu society. He was a fire keeper of Bhāratīya civilization in the line of Swami Vivekananda and Shri Aurobindo. It is necessary to take the works and vision of Shri Sita Ram Goel forward so that Bhāratavarṣa can develop an indigenous perspective of history once again. This Bṛhat Draṣtā course on his works aims to accomplish this very goal.
