Do you think that the histories written by the officials of the British government give us all the information about the country in the eighteen and nineteenth centuries? Why?

Answer:

No, the histories written by the officials of the British government do not give us all the information about the country in the eighteen and nineteenth centuries. This is because of the fact that almost all the British historians highlighted the periods of Governor Generals and Viceroys in India. They were more concerned with outlining the policies and achievements of these officials in India. They have barely written about the people of India—their occupations, traditions, faiths and activities. While on one hand, they glorified the British rule in the country, on the other hand, they declared the natives to be illiterate and paid no attention to their ways of living life. Thus, the British officials only sketched a part of Indian history in the eighteen and nineteenth centuries.
