All faiths need a founding text. To continue believing in the idea of a secular Indian democracy, it is imperative the text that formed this nation be examined.
This conference for social science educators did exactly that—with speakers ranging from Romila Thapar to Gautam Bhatia, Nandini Sundar to AG Noorani, Vrinda Grover to Krishna Kumar, Siddharth Varadarajan to Babloo Loitongbam, among others. The talks were supplemented with teacher workshops on effective ways of bringing the Constitution into the classroom by the likes of Urvashi Butalia, Sambhaji Bhagat and experienced teaching practitioners.
