Need to rewrite textbooks
For any school, helping students attain academic excellence is the ultimate objective. While adding chapters on brave Indian soldiers seems like a good idea, this would mean a lot of added work for educators as this material will have to be integrated into History textbooks without affecting the quality of academics. An example would be that we educate students on the two World Wars, but there is never any mention of the Indian contingents who were also a part of these wars. It is time to instil pride in our History by rewriting textbooks.
