Anything who writes anything that deemed controversial or going against conventional thinking regarding Maratha history especially Shivaji immediately invites the wreath of those "Marathi manoos" variety of goons who are famous for their hooliganism. Similarly in Tamilnadu with the beginning of Dravidian movement of 1960s, Tamil nationalists made it hard for the one who didn't agree with their opinion to express their opinions. Since any history of Tamilnadu can't be written by omitting t issue of Arya-dravida interaction, Brahmins and Sanskrit etc it isn't any surprise that there was hardly any notable work in south Indian history after KAN sastri.Very great post. Can you explain this?
