Verbatim

Indians resented their sacred stories being viewed as mythology, not history. They resented the reconstruction of India's history by British Orientalists based on archaeology, philology and epigraphy, especially since they tended to give greater value to everything antiHindu: the founder of Buddhism (Gautama Sakyamuni), the king who patronized Buddhism (Ashoka), the monuments of Islamic kings, and scriptures like Manu Smriti that affirmed that Hindus used the caste system to suppress vast portions of the local population. It seemed like a political conspiracy to systematically strip upper-caste Hindus of all self-worth and self-esteem. That is why those on the Left are convinced our great narratives are `falsehoods' while those on the Right are convinced they are literal `truths'. Both function in a state of colonial hangover, but will deny it violently if accused of it.
