“The Delhi High Court on Friday restrained historian Dr. Audrey Truschke and other persons from publishing any defamatory material against historian Dr VIKRAM SAMPATH (presently, Columnist in India.)”
VIKRAM SAMPATH is a celebrated author of 3 publications now; he was brought up, schooled in Bengaluru (view BIOGRAPHY*); He is an Electronics Engineering graduate, a Masters in Mathematics from BITS Pilani Rajasthan & a Doctorate in ehnicmusicology from Australia.
Audrey Truschke (London) and her companians (labelled ‘left wing Marxist Historians in India’) tried to malign VIKRAM as a plagiarist (copy cat;) they wrote defamatory articles against VIKRAM with a view to stop him from publishing his latest book: Savarkar- A CONTESTED LEGACY (1924-1966)
Previously, they had tried to stop him from acquiring a Fellowship at the Royal Historical Society (London) without success.

Lately, it has become difficult in India to reverse (correct inaccuracies on…) what has been previously written about freedom fighters of India like: Veer Savarkar.
Todays, left wing historians and marxists try their best to malign young historians of ‘today’s India’ from publishing their research on ‘freedom struggle’ in India during ‘British rule of India’; what a shame!
Thanks to informed courts in India, they will not (read have not) succeed (succeeded)

So are the visuals highlighting the splendors of Jodhpur. The sprawling city amidst historical forts and buildings. Such musicals inspire the way the movies of yesteryears like…
