Description

The historiography of nineteenth-century India is beset by a problem which flows from an assumption that India is one history area. It is within the grand narrative of Indian history that debates in different regions and in various language discourses are viewed and interpreted.

This leaves a large gap in our understanding of particular histories, especially the history of ideas. In Marathi writing, for instance, the figure of Savarkar evokes responses – from critics as much as from admirers – that are very different from those in English. G.P. Deshpande’s new book shows us the riches we can hope to unearth if only we start listening to the vernacular.

He discusses the ideas of three influential – and vastly different – thinkers in Marathi: the radical ideologue of shudratishudra emancipation, Jotirao Phule; the Hindutva ideologue V.D. Savarkar; and the ideologue of Vedanta supremacy, Vinoba Bhave.
