An Urge to Rewrite Indian History: In the Selected Work of Francois Gautier

Dr. Aparna Sharma [3] | Gazal Soni


Abstract: Francois Gautier is a renowned French journalist and writer. He has been a political correspondent in South Asia for ten years for France’s largest daily ‘Le Figaro’. He was deeply influenced by the writings of Sri Aurobindo, an Indian philosopher, Yogi and Nationalist, which sparked an interest in him to know and learn everything about Indian history and culture. He wrote many books about India such as A History of India As It Happened Not As It Has Been Written, Arise Again O India, In Defence of a Billion Hindus, A New History of India etc. which show how systematically and deliberately Indian history and culture were manipulated, Mis-understood and downgraded by Europeans for their own selfish motives. He brings into light many great principles and ideologies which are the foundation of Indian culture and talks about the many myths related to them. His works reflect a crucial need to rewrite Indian History as per the latest linguistics and archaeological findings and discoveries so that the world can know who the Indians are and what great culture they belong to.
