India's Rajasthan state set to rewrite all its history





The Rajasthan government has sought the help of academicians to rewrite the history of all villages, towns and cities of the state.

Historians will probe and verify the history of all 41,000 villages and 186 cities and towns of the state after talking to the village heads and elders. The project is called "Aapno Dharti, Aapno Log" (our land, our people). 

"We have decided to launch the project on Jan 4," State Education Minister Ghanshyam Tiwari told IANS Monday.

According to Tiwari, history written by British author Colonel James Todd is believed to be authentic but is controversial at certain points. He said that history written by Todd would also be corrected.
