Hyderabad: The recording of historical facts by ensuring that all events are incl-uded properly despite different ideologies, has been carried out effectively by Bangladesh when compared to India and Pakistan, according to an analysis carried out by the Delhi University language department and presented in MANNU University in the city.

The analysis of literary history and anthology in all these three countries were studied by Dr Amitava Chakra-borty of Delhi University and it was found that anthologies and literary history from Bangladesh were more inclusive. Professors discussed these issues in a panel discussion of south Asian narratives and found that while India, Pakistan and Bangladesh have the same basis of history, the narration by Bangladesh is more accurate when compared to India and Pakistan. For example, Urdu language was present in India from the Mughal era but Pakistan based its history of Urdu from 1947 during the creation of the nation. Similarly, history authors who have studied  facts during their era are not finding the representation required in the history textbooks of India.

 

But Bangladesh, found commentators Anuroop Kaur and Zarqua Adam, has been able to strike a balance and has been more inclusive in its representation of history. In this context it was found that India and Pakistan have been exclusive in their representation.

The study of anthologies in the south Asian context is to understand how each country has evolved and how they have represented history to their populations.
