What Limbadri said on northern historians

Dominance of north Indians as south history was subjected to neglect earlier: Prof. R Limbadri, vice-chairman, Telangana State Council of Higher Education, said Indian history had dominance of north Indians as south history was subjected to neglect earlier. There was a need to document the role of students in universities such as OU and Kakatiya University in the formation of new State of Telangana, he said. The mention of “Aryans” etc., has been intriguing[1]. Prof. S Ramachandram, Vice-Chancellor, OU, said it was important to adopt new information technologies and techniques to collect, collate and interpret data. Ironically, Badri Narayanan has been from north and unknown to South Indian Congress delegates. When the IHC or the northern historians do not care southern ones, why SIHC has been after such northern categories? Perhaps, SIHC want to follow IHC in manipulating it or play a second fiddle to IHC? Much publicity was given with banners, posters, brochures, videos[2] and so on, that was never seen in previous sessions[3].

Badri talks on dalits at Calicut and Hyderabad also

Badri talked on “Democracy and Dalit politics in north India” at Calicut August 2018 and now here in Hyderabad, he talked about, “Dalits in Neo-liberal Economy: A discussion on most marginal communities”!

42. Breakfast, Lungi style

The real “Lungi style” exhibited by a historian at “breakfast”……………………………………….

42. Breakfast, kerala vc TN

Sivadasan has been busy with Pramod…..while our Reddy has been so cool with lungi – LUNGI strategy Kerala versus Tamilnadu!

Badri Narayanan confused the audience: Arjun Rao Kuthadi welcomed the VIPs and delegates pointing out that the 39th session of SIHC session was held here after 1986, when 6th session was held nearly 36 years before. Prof Badri Narayanan was invited to give key-note address, but, when he started talking during the inauguration, many surprised, as it was not the procedure. Moreover, many felt and openly expressed as to why a north Indian should have been invited for the purpose. Moreover, he just came and went away getting Rs.40,000/- towards flight and other charges, as pointed out by some senior members. Raising the issue of “Identity and History” and “identity politics” etc., he pointed out that history was rewritten by BSP and RSS also through “Bharatiya Itihasa Sankalana Samiti.” Archives are produced by the power, government and therefore, the voice of the lesser people should be listened to and recorded. Obviously, the audience was confused about his speech pointing out that he was supporting RSS and so on!…..He appears to be a “political commentator” as could be noted from some videos[4]. Whether he has been a leftist or rightist ideology or otherwise, his presence surprised many of the SIHC members!

With Venkateswara Rao, I was there interacting with the paper presenters……………………….

I presented my paper, “Rajendra Chola’s expedition to Maldives and its significance in the Maritime context,” at this section. Though, I brought PP for presentation, there was no provision. When I started presenting paper, there were many interference and disturbances, as could be noted from the photos…..

Now, paper presenters have to write their LM no, delegate fee payment receipt no……………I got signature from the Local Secretary [can be seen on the LHS] for presenting paper, as my title is missing from the list of papers and summary also missing! Then, they say CD is missing and so on!

The academic sessions: The following had been the sectional presidents to conduct the technical sessions during the conference for three days.

Sl.

No

Section of history President
1 Political History Dr. M. P Mujeebu Rahiman (Calicut)
2 Social History Prof. G. Badru Naik (Warangal)
3 Economic History Dr. Babu. S. (Puducherry)
4 Cultural History Dr. Sasi Kanta Dash (Puducherry)
5 Historiography and Maritime History Dr. K. Sankari (Annamalai Nagar)

However, the sessions were held in a hurried manner giving 5 to 7 minutes for paper readers. The papers had also been of routine nature, repeating what have already been there in the previous proceedings, books etc. Ironically, 50% papers had been the same, what they already presented in other conferences / seminars or even last sessions of SIHC. As I have been attending, listening to papers, I could easily find out such features. In fact, in facebook, when I pointed out, one paper presenter accepted the fact. On 10-02-2019, at the political section hall, when we were waiting for more than one hour from 9 am, we were told that the sectional president, Dr. M. P Mujeebu Rahiman from Calicut was taking breakfast! Then, suddenly, rapporteur came with few to announce that he had already left for Calicut! So it is not known why such preoccupied experts should be chosen for “technical / paper reading session”! How the paper readers would have been anxiously waiting, he should understand. When 5 to 7 minutes are given for paper presentation, can he waste more than one hour like this, that too, with his absence?

Online Registration: The circular gave details as follows[5]: “The South Indian History Congress is offering online registration of research papers. Members are requested to register the details of their papers through our website: http://www.southindianhistorycongress.org Scholars are requested to send their papers, soft copy (e-mail-sihcosmania2019@gmail.com) & hard copy on or before 15 January, 2019 to The Local Secretary, 39th South Indian History Congress, Department of History Osmania University, Hyderabad, Amberpet, 500007, Telangana. Papers received on or before the due date will get precedence for presentation. More than one paper by a member shall not be admitted for presentation. The paper should be neatly computed in about 8 pages double spaced with end notes and two copies of the paper should be sent to the Local Secretary. End notes should be numbered consecutively throughout the paper and placed at the end. All papers submitting to the Congress will strictly follow the Style Manual published in the website of the SIHC. Most important is that the paper presenters while presenting their papers at the respective sections should handover a soft copy in CD form to the concerned Sectional President. Those papers in English alone will be considered for inclusion in the Proceedings Volume”. Again when implementation came, the worst only happened.  Though many applied online, their papers were not listed in the “List of papers”! I prove my case specifically as follows. I registered and got the reply from the Geneal Secretary as follows:

But there was no response from him! Thus, it is evident that the receiver has manipulated with the online-registration process / e-mails. A cyber-expert can find out easily, who has done such mischief and it is serious again! Many others had also pointed out that their papers were not listed. The office bearers should be responsible for such blunders.

[1] Now, the Aryan-Dravidian race hypotheses and theories have been proven scientifically false and historians still talk such myths has been surprising and intriguing.
