Is Ulki Still So Important

Is 'Ulki' Still So Important?
S SHUKLA's letter (April 29) simply shows that even now 'bhadralok' scholars like him are not ready to reassess the role of the bhadralok in the development of the colonial policy on education. It is strange that they still hold the simplistic view of colonial history as propounded by early nationalist scholars. History as a complex process involving many contradictory forces, they refuse to recognise. In the name of the main contradiction they ignore the limits of .the nationalist movement. True, the main contradiction is crucial, but no less important is how the other contradictions are channelled towards the main contradiction. It is amusing that Shukla should speak of class commitment and yet hold a simplistic view of history which ignores class contradiction.
