GLF 2014: Focus on historical facts

A critical approach on history came up for a livelier discussion when a panel of experts had a brainstorming session as part of the Guwahati Lit Fest on Saturday.

Noted expert and former JNU professor Puspesh Pant, author Namita Gokhle, The India Express journalist Samudra Gupta Kashyap and Dibrugarh University professor Dr Chandan Sarma threw some lights on a few aspects on the distortion of historical facts and figures. Gokhle moderated the discussion much to the benefit of the students of history.
