Attended a class of shruti's favourite teacher yesterday... an intellectual giant who takes the term 'shock and awe' to a new high.
Although I agree with shruti on the fact that she is an excellent teacher who knows her subject inside out, I disagree with her methodology.
In an effort to 'free' our minds and make us see what really happened in colonial India she seeks to tear down any theory even vaguely supportive of British rule.
Some of the reasons she gives border on the ridiculous...
Cant see she, by trying to adopt a blanket approach she is ruining her own credibility.
To win a true convert she needs to show us the light not push us to it...
